fibUK: what’s happening? is organised by the UK Group of fib (The International Federation for Structural Concrete). The commissions instigate research on structural concrete and publish industry guidance that goes beyond what established codes can offer. Designers, contractors, academics and clients will gain an understanding of the latest fib developments.
Expert speakers will cover what's happening on:
Ladin Camci BSc MSc is ‘Chief Technology & Sustainability Officer (CTSO)’ and ‘Executive Board Member’ of CARES, an international product certification body that focuses on the production, processing, supply and installation of steel products used in the construction industry. Ladin is the convener of the fib TG 5.2 and deputy convener of fib TG 7.5.
