With an interactive App, and a survey before the conference, the audiences views become part of the presentation.  With this understanding of the future participants will learn how to spot the important trends, enabling them to create original, innovative solutions. Prepare for a fun and thought provoking presentation.

Interbloc logo_FDE REGISTEREDInterbloc is a revolutionary modular construction system that is the number one choice when it comes to bulk storage and retaining walls.

At the heart of the Interbloc system is a unique interlocking concrete block. Combined, the blocks form a structure that is flexible, durable, and safe. 

 Unlike traditional systems, the engineered Interbloc system has an interlocking ability that provides shear key strength, allowing for the structure to easily be reconfigured without compromising on durability. The blocks can also be vertically reinforced after placement to increase out-of-plane bending capacity. This means Interbloc walls are not limited by their gravity capacity, but with reinforcing, they can perform much the same as traditional reinforced concrete walls.
The inherent efficiency of the Interbloc system also results in savings. Blocks are manufactured at a lower cost and installed faster than traditional systems.
