Ever found yourself perplexed by industry jargon like ‘Slump Testing’, ‘Compressive Strength’, or ‘Workability’? Or perhaps you’ve wondered about the secret behind designing a high-performance concrete mix? Today, we’re going to demystify the role of a concrete technologist, a critical yet often overlooked player in the construction and civil engineering sector.
So, what is a concrete technologist?
A concrete technologist is a highly trained professional with a profound understanding of concrete, its properties, and most importantly, its effective and safe use in civil engineering applications. They are essentially the custodians of the concrete world, specializing in its science and production technology. Simon Rickett is one such professional, holding an Advanced Diploma in Concrete Technology from Imperial College and membership in the Institute of Concrete Technology (MICT). Along with my civil engineering background, I help ensure that Premcrete Civils remains at the forefront of concrete technology.
To sum it up, a concrete technologist brings invaluable expertise to the table, ensuring that concrete is used efficiently, safely, and effectively in all projects. Their deep knowledge helps navigate the challenges of construction, aiding in delivering a successful project that meets your needs.
