Message from the Chair

Raman Mangabhai


As with all Groups within SCI, our aim is to provide members with an interesting, timely and industrially relevant range of events over the year. Most of our meetings are topical, addressing areas of current interest or concern, but we also run events taking a historical perspective on a subject. Our committee meetings are commonly held before or after events at the SCI headquarters in Belgrave Square, and each summer, we organise a group visit to a site of interest.

Our interests span all aspects of construction materials and practice, but two strong themes have led to us to establish sub-committees to co-ordinate our events in Asphaltic and Bituminous Materials and in Cement and Concrete.

In brief

We arrange a regular schedule of meetings, conferences and site visits to examine and discuss all aspects of the construction industry. We also support representatives on relevant SCI and external committees and offer comment to external organisations.
