Andrew Minson appointed Concrete & Sustainable Construction Director for GCCA : GCCA
He has led the Concrete Industry Sustainable Construction Strategy for the UK since — a strategy that encompasses the whole life of the material from sourcing constituents to beyond project demolition. He worked for global engineering consultant Arup for ten years before joining the Concrete Centre. We are excited to have Andrew take on this leading role in our organisation. Concrete as a material is so versatile and has such a range of inherent performance benefits that it can be used by the construction industry to deliver great projects.
I look forward to bringing together best practice from around the world with the latest thinking to show how concrete can lead to the best sustainable outcomes for society.
