Shotcrete NZ 2023

Sunday November 5th, 2023
Aotea Centre, Auckland

Shotcrete is an essential component of ground support in many tunnels and underground mines. Demands for sustainability, safety, and price control have presented new challenges for suppliers, contractors, and specifiers involved with this material. 

The evolution of shotcrete technology, 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 in conjunction with the Australian and New Zealand Tunnelling Societies is organising a one-day workshop to be held on November 5, 2023, at the Aotea Centre, Auckland. 

This workshop is associated with the Australasian Tunnelling Conference and includes a number of industry expert presenters from Australia and New Zealand including Arnold Dix, President of the ITA.
