Concrete has long had a reputation for many great attributes that make it the responsible choice in building and construction.

These attributes include: thermal mass, durability, strength, fire resistance, flexibility, impact resistance, fast build times, low maintenance and lowrisk. Concrete is also energy-efficient, non-toxic, termite-proof and cost-effective.

Considering all this, it is not hard to see why concrete is the foundation on which our modern societies and economies are built.

Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia (CCAA) has just published new resource materials to complement its ongoing work in the area of concrete and sustainability.

Concrete – The responsible choice draws together information on the credentials of concrete as a sustainable construction material/technology as well as the achievements of the cement, concrete and aggregate industries in terms of sustainable production practices.

CCAA's new materials include:

  • Concrete - the responsible choice - a 32-page brochure telling the concrete 'story'
  • Briefing 11 - Sustainable Concrete Materials
  • Briefing 12 - Thermal Mass Benefits for Housing
  • Briefing 13 - Sustainable Concrete Buildings
  • Briefing 14 - Sustainable Concrete Infrastructure

All these documents can be freely downloaded from CCAA's website under the menu item "Sustainability". While there, you may like to take a moment to check out CCAA's Life cycle Assessment Case Studies.
