Concrete is one of the most widely used building materials throughout the world. It is preferred because of compressive strength characteristics and its unique ability to be formed into structures of almost any shape or profile. However, beneath the simplicity of its appearance lies a network of challenges and complexities in both design and construction. This program will focus on lessons learned on materials, design and construction of concrete
