Inland Branch step over the border ...again!
Following success with their mini-seminars in Botswana, the Inland Branch has visited Swaziland recently to promote concrete and the Concrete Society.
The seminar featured ‘Concrete Testing Unpacked” and was presented by Johan van Wyk, Chair, Inland branch, and Committee members, Jaco du Plessis and Jannes Bester. The venue chosen was the Happy Valley Hotel and Casino in Ezulwini, Swaziland.
The event went off very well, with almost 30 people attending and the delegates finding the talks very interesting and informative. Those present comprised representatives from many different sectors, such as readymix, contractors, consultants, pre-casters, buyers and suppliers. There was a lot of active participation from them, and many an anecdote was shared with the speakers.
Presentations were made on the execution of practical laboratory testing (Jaco); fresh concrete testing (Jannes) and hardened concrete testing (Johan).
A big thank you to the Swaziland AfriSam team for their assistance and encouraging people to attend the event, and also to Chryso and Mapei who took the opportunity to host display tables.
