CONCRETE TRENDS 2021 ISSUE 1
Concrete Trends Issue 1, 2021 – celebrating the emerging recovery
The first edition of Concrete Trends 2021 is back from the printers and on its way to the desks of our subscribers, while digimag is now available for download by everyone.
This edition definitely signals an overall improvement in the fate of the Concrete Industry, being at the centre of Construction (with a BIG C). We are excited to see how 2021 reveals the nature, size and distribution of the recovery.
In this edition you can find out more about the formation of the consolidated association: Cement & Concrete SA, insights into the new designation of local cement for all public sector projects and a range of great technical articles. We take a look at concrete repairs, sustainable concrete products with extended lifetimes, concrete reinforcements and trucking.
This edition’ cover story focusses on iconic South African cement and concrete producer, PPC. A compelling interview with Johan Vorster, Head of PPC Coastal Business Unit, reveals the passion the company has for ensuring its national footprint provides the best product and services it can, irrespective of region or locality.
We also take a look at the West African construction and cement industries, while Mozambique’s infrastructure projects also feature.
This year, our first two editions have been pushed out by some weeks, in order to take the steps needed to ensure a sustainable publication. We thank you for your patience and wish you a satisfying read.
