the research community to improve the delivery
of breakthrough advancements in the cement and concrete product market.
Our vision is to develop fully integrated product development and systems capability, from research proof-of-concept to commercial production stage, that is ready to roll-out and will lead to Australian competitiveness in Design Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing.
Our goal is to guarantee the long-term viability of vital concrete infrastructure in Australia. We will achieve this through three major program initiatives that will: improve the cost, the application and durability of concrete, catalyst for step change in whole of life asset management via remote monitoring of concrete structures, improve the productivity and sustainability of the supply chain and reduce our carbon foot print.
