EcoSmart will be holding an interactive workshop and consultation in the United Arab Emirates. The “Toward Better and Greener Concrete” workshop will take place in Abu Dhabi on March 16, 2009 and in Dubai on March 18, 2009.

SOS Greener Concrete Canadian Workshop presentation

David Barrie and Roy Sage of EcoSmart provide an overview of supplementary cementing materials the links between cement and climate change and EcoSmart s SOS software development project. The SOS – or Supplementary Cementing Materials Optimization System – is in development until early 2011. This presentation was given to attendees of the SOS User Consultation Workshop held in select cities across Canada in December 2008 & February 2009 -cities included Vancouver Calgary Edmonton Winnipeg Toronto Ottawa Montreal and Halifax- . After the presentation participants were then engaged in discussion for feedback to assist in the development of the SOS to ensure it is a tool that will respond to the needs of the construction & design industry.
