Using concrete in a changing environment series - part three of four.

The climate emergency is forcing all professions across the built environment to consider how to lower the embodied carbon of the structures they design and build. 
The 2022 Using concrete in a changing environment inaugural e-conference was dedicated to helping structural engineers understand how to assess, strengthen and reuse existing concrete structures to extend their life and reduce the impact the built environment profession has on the environment.
Featuring presentations from the e-conference, the third webinar in this series focuses on design and material efficiency.

Reasons to watch

  • Learn the principles to design efficiently for low-carbon concrete, and how these can be actualised in practice

  • Hear about alternative cementitious and aggregate systems towards eCO2 reduction ​

Intended for

  • Structural engineers

  • Designers

  • Contractors

  • Material engineers

​Speakers

Jenny Burridge Head of Structural Engineering, The Concrete Centre

Jenny is a chartered civil and structural engineer, with more than 30 years’ experience in the construction industry. She has worked for Arup and AECOM, designing award winning buildings in both the UK and mainland Europe. She is the UK representative on the CEN task group, looking at revisions to the fire part of Eurocode 2, and she chairs the BSI Advisory Committee for Engineering Design and Construction.

Ailsa Roberts Senior Engineer, Expedition Engineering

Ailsa focuses on improving the efficiency of structures, through considered concept design, detailed analysis, careful use of materials and applied research. An example of this combined approach comes from HS2’s Old Oak Common Station, where Ailsa led the design of the 1km basement box’s foundations, saving concrete by refining the structural analysis, alongside her development of a study with CARES to make use of tested properties of steel reinforcement.

Fragkoulis Kanavaris Lead Concrete Materials Specialist, Arup

Fragkoulis is a renowned expert on concrete materials, sustainability, cracking, durability, concrete technology, specification, condition assessment and remediation of concrete structures. He has contributed to more than 250 projects worldwide, from buildings, bridges and tunnels to nuclear, renewable energy and maritime structures.
