The School of Natural and Builit Environments hosted a Sprayed Concrete seminar on behalf of the Concrete Institute of Australia, South Australian Branch, in the N building in February with around 60 participants attending.
The newly refurbished and extended N1-12 and N1-12a rooms used were the perfect location and impressed all the guests.
It was a great success in that we actually demonstrated how concrete is sprayed. This demonstration was carried out by a commercial company, Mezcon Contracting. The company also advised how sprayed concrete is tested.
Testing carried out by Michelle Plew showcased not only how testing is carried out but also the facilities that UniSA has to carry out both specialised testing and research.
