Workshop on „Waterproof concrete structures“

The WP Code of Practice of DAfStb has been published now. This is reason for the German Committee for Reinforced Concrete (DAfStb – Deutscher Ausschuss für Stahlbeton e.V.) and the German Society for Concrete and Construction Technology (DBV – Deutscher Beton- und Bautechnik Verein E.V.) for a new edition after the big success of the workshop on „waterproof concrete constructions“ organized in autumn of 2016 and 2017. DBV together with DAfStb as co-organizer will start a third edition in June and October of 2018 with a slightly updated program. The newly published DBV worksheet 43, including the new DAfStb WP Code of Practice among others, serves as valuable conference documentation.

The half-day workshop is dedicated to all those involved in the construction of concrete structures impermeable to water, that is to building owners/clients, users, planners, building contractors and construction supervisors.

The workshops will always take place from 13:00 to 16:30 hours on the following days: on June 12, 2018, in Essen; June 13, 2018, in Hamburg; June 14, 2018, in Berlin, and then on October 17, 2018, in Leinfelden-Echterdingen and on October 18, 2018, in Stockdorf.

The registration fee amounts to € 239.00 for members of DAfStb and DBV and € 279.00 for non-members.
