PPC sponsors Fulton Awards

Leading cement supplier, PPC, is the Anchor Sponsor in the Concrete Society of Southern Africa’s (CSSA) 2015 Fulton Awards.

Twenty-four submissions have been received for this year’s Fulton Awards, which is presented every two years to honour “excellence in the use of concrete” on the African sub-continent.

The entries will be judged in four categories: Civil Engineering Structure, Building Structure and Architectural Concrete – with each including sub-categories for projects up to and in excess of R100-million in value.

The fourth category, Innovation in Concrete, aims to attract new ideas in projects or initiatives where totally new materials, techniques, technologies, applications, design and analysis concepts or procedures, using concrete as the principal material, have been developed and implemented.

Alta Walker from PPC said: “The Fulton Awards is considered the ‘Oscars’ of concrete and is arguably the most prestigious award that a project team can receive in the built environment.”

The Fulton Awards originated as a tribute to the late Dr Sandy Fulton for his outstanding contribution to the understanding of concrete, its development and its improvement.

Winners will be announced during the Fulton Awards Weekend from the 5-7 June 2015.
