50th Anniversary

Venue: Annie Lennox Building, Glasgow Caledonian University
Date: 29th September 2022
Time: 10.30 to 16.00


The year 2022 is significant for the ICT because it celebrated its 50th Anniversary in June 2022. By any standards this is an achievement and will be celebrated, socially and technically, by the ICT, its members, and the concrete industry that it represents.

Over the last 50 years the Institute has staunchly supported education in concrete technology resulting in respected qualifications, professionalism, training, and the provision of relevant information relating to all things concrete. It has, and still does provide qualified professionals at all levels.

The last 50 years have seen many changes for concrete as a material and for the industry whether you are a provider or a user. The ICT has remained at the forefront of these changes and contributed significantly to responsible adoption and where relevant to adaption.

As part of the celebration in Scotland, special one-day symposium will be hosted by the Glasgow Caledonian University on Thursday 29th September. This event will be an excellent opportunity to learn and socialise in an atmosphere of celebration.

The Technical Symposium programme for this anniversary comprises six papers dealing with low carbon concrete, CSA cement, structural testing and monitoring, durability and maintenance of concrete and the use of sensors for low carbon concrete optimization, and these will be given by recognised experts from academia and industry.
