Concrete is globally available and the material of choice for the majority of buildings and infrastructure. It is relatively inexpensive, readily available and in many ways sustainable and as a result will continue to be used for the foreseeable future. However, it is not without challenges from alternative materials and design concepts, but also from aesthetic, durability and environmental concerns. These trends and issues were addressed previously in order to identify and determine priorities at a national and international level for research, development and best practice. This paper revisits the predictions made in order to judge to what extent progress has been made.
