After four years of hard work, the 4th Edition of Concrete Society Report TR34 has finally been published. Face Consultants have been uniquely placed to take a leading role in the project, being able to draw on their worldwide experience.
Face Consultants have therefore been at the forefront of the development of this edition. Managing Director Kevin Dare has been instrumental in a detailed review and overhaul of the floor surface flatness and construction sections, while Technical Director Tony Hulett chaired the Design Group.
TR34 has been influential throughout the world for many years since its first edition in 1988. In 2003, for the first time, it provided comprehensive guidance on the design of ground supported slabs using both fabric and fibre reinforcement. Since then its influence has increased in no small measure due its promotion by Face Consultants worldwide.
This latest edition now includes design guidance for pile supported floors and can now be considered a truly comprehensive document for the design of Warehouse Floors. Already, it is being read and talked about across the world. So now, in 2013, both TR34 and Face Consultants have become truly “global brands”.
However, the development of technical excellence is never finished. Face Consultants as the leading global consultancy are committed to the ongoing improvement of the understanding of industrial floors and to applying this knowledge for the benefit of its clients.
Kevin Dare, Face Consultants’ MD and Chairman of Association of The Concrete Industrial Flooring Contractors (ACIFC) was one of the key speakers at the recent ACIFC conference which took place on Tuesday 5th November. The conference offered an exclusive insight into the new TR34 4th Edition, the recognised industry standard for concrete industrial flooring. Please click here to Read More
