The demand for affordable, high quality housing in China is rapidly growing. The Chinese government is exploring precast construction elements to satisfy this demand. To that end, ICCX Asia 2017 will bring together government officials, builders, architects, engineers, and specifiers with the world renown experts and suppliers of products to Precast Concrete Elements industry from around the world. ICCX Asia will be held on the 22nd and 23rd of September 2017 at the Marriott Shanghai Parkview Hotel. The sole focus will be on exploring how Precast Concrete Elements can be utilized to provide high-quality housing in a timely manner without sacrificing safety and longevity.
Quality – Safety - Speed
The program lectures will be dedicated to how precast concrete elements can be utilized to provide high quality seismic structures in a shorter time frame than conventional construction, without sacrificing safety. Speakers from Europe, Oceania, and North America will present techniques and technology for the Asia market.
Standards and Connection Technology
Representatives from the European Standardization Committees will be on hand to answer question regarding best practices developed by their committees. A large portion of the lectures will be devoted to the Connection Technology for Precast Concrete Elements.
High-rise Housing Made of Precast Elements – Architecture & Efficiency
This lecture illustrates how precast concrete can be safely utilized in the construction of building with 30 or more floors while maintaining high architectural standards and energy efficiency.
Our Speaker will cover not only the energy efficiency of precast concrete elements, but also discuss the advantages of producing elements in precast plants where CO2 emissions can be monitored and reduced.
Seismic Properties of Precast Concrete Elements
Since China can experience 8.5+ magnitude earthquakes throughout the country, seismic considerations play a large role in all types of new constructions. An internationally recognized expert in seismic construction will discuss the methods for building and erecting structures with precast concrete elements that will withstand significant seismic events.
Q & A with Speakers and an Informative Trade Exhibition
Following each lecture there will be opportunities for in-depth discussions with the speakers. In addition to the informative lectures, a trade exhibition with the leading suppliers and consulting companies for the precast concrete industry will be held over two days.
Attendees from China and Southeast Asia
Even though ICCX Asia 2017 will be held in Shanghai, the selection of topics is aimed at visitors from not only China, but all of Southeast Asia. Many of the problems facing construction companies in Malaysia, the Philippines and Indonesia are like those in China. Lectures will be simultaneously translated into English and Chinese.
