Concrete Institute of Australia – Precast Plant Tour
The ACT Sub Branch of the Concrete Institute of Australia is excited to be holding their first Canberra event of the year with a Precast Concrete Plant tour. The event is being held at RIGA Precast in Queanbeyan on Thursday 7th April from 3:00pm and spots are limited! Register for this great event via the CIA website
Precast concrete construction is a growing segment of the Australian construction market. Precast concrete offers freedom in design, faster and more practical construction options along with strength and sustainability in structures. This event offers members a chance to see behind the scene of a working precast yard.
The tour of the RIGA precast plant will provide a walk-through of the precast manufacturing process as we walk alongside each step of the production process.
Presenters will follow alongside the tour, and deliver their technical expertise at each stage of the process, featuring:
- Concrete delivery and mix design
- Preparing and pouring a precast unit
- Lifting a finished unit and importance of design
- Finishes available
- Repairing units
- Discussion and open forum over refreshments
