History: 50 Years of Excellence in Concrete
In 2020 the Concrete Institute of Australia celebrated its Golden Jubilee. Recognising 50 years of excellence in concrete is a mighty achievement, and the date Friday 17th April 2020 is significant, as it was 50 years to the day that the Institute was officially registered in NSW as a company limited by guarantee with an approved Memorandum and Articles of Association. However, the Institute didn’t just start on that day, the prelude to that moment took nearly twenty years.
