INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE FOR SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS
Building the Future - Sustainability through Innovation

The 5th edition of the INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE FOR SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS marks an important milestone in this development of the initiative headed by Dubai Municipality`s Central Laboratory.

What started in 2013 as a local UAE industry event, has now evolved into an international annual platform for professionals in the field of quality assurance for sustainable construction materials.

This 2-day conference features the latest innovations and trends in design and construction that will shape the future in the Gulf region and beyond.

This year`s edition presents the latest developments in the field of 3D Concrete Printing and provides first hand insights into the sustainability strategy for Expo 2020.

Two parallel Workshops on the second day offer excursions to the Expo 2020 site and Office of the Future. This will be followed by additional in-depth technical presentations on Fire Safety and Fire Resistance and 3D Concrete Printing.

The event brings together leading decision-makers from the government, international researchers and private sector professionals in related fields. The objective is to learn from each other and to open up new channels of dialogue between the various stakeholders.

As for previous editions, ASTM International and other international certification bodies and academic partners have confirmed their ongoing active support. Participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance issued by ASTM.
