Lunch and Learn Penetron
Thursday 26 May 2022

with Hacene Baleh, National Technical Manager

‘Waterproofing and durability of Water treatment structures including sewage’

Concrete deteriorates for many different reasons and could start as early as 5 years, and the most known are as follows: Reinforcement corrosion (Mainly due to chloride ions, and/or carbonation in the presence of water and oxygen), freeze and thaw, the internal Alkali Silica Reactions, the external chemical attacks, and the Microbially Induced Corrosion (MIC) caused by the AcidiThioBacillus TheoOxidans (Cement eaters) and AcidiThioBacillus FerroOxidans (Steel eaters). Penetron explains how they occur and offer solutions on how to prevent them from happening in the first place, hence extending the life of the structure even beyond the design life.

Lunch and Learn SRIA
Thursday 12 May 2022

with Scott Munter, SRIA Executive Director

AS 3600 structural integrity reo, fitment options & high strength reinforcing steel

SRIA highlights some of the most recent market issues discovered in the design and detailing of structural integrity reinforcement and also fitment options in AS 3600:2018. A recent reinforcing steel technical enquiry concerning approval of the 14 mm diameter non-compliant imported reinforcement is examined along with simple SRIA recommendations to demonstrate conforming materials to AS/NZS 4671 Steel for the reinforcement of concrete. A newly discovered international video showing bent reinforcing bars fracturing in a brittle manner on rebending is also included. A high level overview of the high strength reinforcing steel requirements in AS/NZS 4671 plus the AS 3600 design requirements are included for interest and discussion.

Lunch and Learn Ultrafloor
Thursday 24 February 2022

with Richard Lorenzin, Civil Engineer/Sales Manager


This presentation focuses on the use of the Ultrafloor precast flooring system in roof structures. The design, detailing and product application will be covered using two recent reference projects. These being the National Herbarium in Mount Annan and the new subterranean Arthur Boyd Art Gallery on the Shoalhaven River.

Lunch and Learn Reid Construction Systems
Thursday 17 February 2022

with Andrew McFarland and Peter Kinsley


This presentation covers the correct design of cog anchorage and headed anchorages; strength (direct tension, moment enhancements and shear), ductility, integrity and serviceability crack control.

We also look at rebate systems and connections types for applications – slabs, stair landings and beams. We share some case studies and comparisons to design of pull-out boxes.
