2016 marks the 25th year of National Precast, the peak body of the precast industry. To commemorate the occasion, the industry will be celebrating its achievements at a formal dinner on Thursday 10th November at the Opera House.
Commemmorating Precast – People, Products and Projects
According to National Precast CEO Sarah Bachmann, the night will recognise the people, products and projects that make the precast industry what it is today.
“The precast industry has made some phenomenal achievements over the years” said Ms Bachmann.
“From buildings to civil construction, precast concrete products are now recognised as sustainability leaders, offering best practice in every facet of what sustainability is about,” she said.
After 25 years, the Association is now widely recognised as the industry’s peak body, uniting, representing and promoting Australia’s leading manufacturers.
Venue Befitting of Celebrations
Some of Australia’s most significant and stunning structures have been constructed using precast concrete, including the venue of the celebratory dinner. Certainly the most iconic Australian precast structure, the Sydney Opera House is itself a precast structure, including 2,400 precast concrete rib beams – some 49 m long – which are visible under the Monumental Steps and support a series of the curved shell roof.
“We are absolutely delighted to be holding the dinner at the Opera House. It is a venue perfectly befitting of the occasion. Not to mention the entertainment and MC for the night, Darryl Lovegrove, who is famous for his musical performances in Jesus Christ Superstar, Les Miserables, and appearing alongside Sarah Brightman and Anthony Warlow in The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber.”
With great company, a splendid venue and spectacular entertainment, the evening will be topped off with catering by Matt Moran’s Aria Catering.
“Not many of us are lucky enough to say we’ve dined at the Opera House, let alone in this style.
“Our Event Partner ramsetreid in particular, together with Supporting Sponsors, are enabling us to put on a fantastic night that the industry will remember for a long time to come. We all need to acknowledge and be truly thankful for their support,” said Ms Bachmann.
The dinner will be the who’s who of the industry. All of Australia’s leading precast manufacturers, together with well-known suppliers of products and services, will be there helping to celebrate the occasion.
Don’t Miss the Fun
“Whether you’re a precast manufacturer, architect, engineer or builder… you’re an integral part of the precast community and we’d love you to help us celebrate. It’ll be a huge event, so make sure you are there”, she said.
