Battersea Power station has long been an imposing part of the skyline of London’s south bank and it’s return to use in a converted form after so many years is good news. A presntation from Leada Acrow on Wednesday 25 february, 2015 in Seminar 1, entitled Battersea - Overview of the project, will give more details of what has been achieved. Having built the plant, sourced the constituent materials, designed the mix, batched it and transported it to site, it still has to be placed and that usually means a pump. Few people know more about the practicalities of using a concrete pump than Camfour Concrete Pumps, whose Andrew Turner will be presenting their session, How to Pump Concrete in Seminar 1 on Wednesday, 25 February, 2015 at 13.30. Every winter brings challenges for concrete production, handling, finishing and curing, so Wacker Neuson’s presentation, Cold weather heat protection for concrete, to be presented by Market Development Manager - Climate Technologies, Ken Cannella, will be welcome advice at this chilly time of the year. See it in Seminar 1 at 11.00 on Thursday, 26 February, 2015.
