Move beyond the textbook
Rob Hearne, Chartered Consultant Architect and CPD specialist, who assessed the initial open day, said:
“Galvanizing is a ubiquitous process that many take for granted without truly getting to grips with the detail. This open day has shown that the galvanizing industry across the board wants specifiers and contractors to move beyond the text book, and to design, develop and equally importantly, assess results, from a position of greater knowledge.”
