Shotcrete has become established as an essential component of most underground space development. Recent years have seen a large increase in the amount of shotcrete used for civil infra-structure in Australia. The volume of work and demands for sustainability and price control have presented new challenges for suppliers, contractors, and specifiers involved with this material. The evolution of shotcrete technology over recent years, plus the large number of new people in the industry, has heightened the need for an update on new products, processes, and methods related to shotcrete application available within the industry.

In response to these demands, the Australian Shotcrete Society has organised a two-day workshop to be held on November 16-17, 2022, at the Novotel Sydney Central Hotel, Sydney. The workshop will cover a range of topics related to developments in shotcrete for ground support in Australia. The format will comprise a first day of lectures covering the essentials of shotcrete technology for all applications, followed by a second day focused on more advanced aspects of shotcrete relevant to civil tunnels and infra-structure. There will be eight lectures each day with interspersed sessions to allow questions and discussions to be raised. A workshop dinner is planned for the evening of the first day. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
