Description

This is a state-of-the-art summary on recent developments in construction, design and the innovation in concrete technology. It describes, in an accessible form, a number of building studies where speed of construction, cost savings and early completion were a priority, and it highlights the outcome of some highly original and pioneering research on concrete technology.
