INVITATION to EUPAVE’s 8th workshop on Best Practices in Concrete Paving “Outdoor industrial and heavy-duty concrete pavements” (hybrid event)


Wednesday 19 April 2023 from 13.00 till 17.00
EUPAVE Offices (Boulevard du Souverain 68 – 1170 Brussels) and online

Concrete is extensively used for the construction of internal floors of factories and warehouses as well as for external pavements such as parking, delivery and storage areas and hardstandings for heavy use in port and airport areas. When designed and constructed properly, concrete floors and external pavements will provide excellent serviceability over a long period.

This workshop will focus on different technical aspects of outdoor industrial and heavy duty concrete pavements: design, construction, concrete mix characteristics, equipment, etc. but it will also highlight why concrete pavements are often the best choice.
