Invitation to EUPAVE Best Practices workshop “Concrete Overlays”, 19 October 2022


We are glad to announce our 7th workshop on Best Practices in Concrete Paving “Concrete Overlays”. The hybrid event will be held Wednesday 19 October 2022 from 13.00 to 17.00 at Hôtel Le Châtelain, Brussels and online.

A concrete overlay is a concrete paving layer that is placed over an existing pavement. When properly designed and constructed, concrete overlays provide cost-effective, long-life, sustainable pavement rehabilitation options for a broad range of pavement types, existing pavement conditions, and project needs.

This workshop will give you an overview of the basic principles of concrete overlay design and construction and European and American practical experiences. It is intended for experts coming from Road Agencies, Engineering Bureaus, Contractors… who have a general interest in the design, construction, and maintenance of concrete pavements and particularly in concrete overlays.
