The Concrete Centre 

The Concrete Centre aims to enable all those involved in the design, use and performance of concrete and masonry to realise the potential of the material. We provide events, best practice guidance, online resources and are the proud publishers of Concrete Quarterly.

About The Concrete Centre

We provide material, design and construction guidance on the use of concrete and masonry via the provision of information and resources on the design, performance, specification and construction of housing and buildings. This includes information on standards, sustainability, health and safety, structural/ thermal performance and case studies.

Concrete and masonry homes also provide flood resilience, acoustic benefits, security, durability and robustness and can also help to reduce the risk of overheating.

If you have any queries on concrete and masonry housing you can also email us at nsbrc@concretecentre.com

We also run a number of free events, including online webinars. For more information visit our events calendar.  

The Basement Information Centre

The Basement Information Centre (TBIC) aims to encourage and enable the design and construction of quality basements on new developments and the improvement of existing and retro-fit basements.

Why choose a basement?

Basements can provide comfortable day-lit rooms, with natural ventilation and external access, as an extension to the living spaces above. They also provide the opportunity for more unique uses, such as gyms, music rooms and swimming pools. Alternatively, basements can simply provide practical space for games or hobby rooms, home offices, parking, or storage.

There are number of performance considerations when designing a basement including fire safety, airtightness, sound insulation.

An early consideration is often cost and there are costs for example basements available to download from https://www.basements.org.uk/TBIC/Basements/Cost.aspx
