Letter from Corporate Quality Head
Arid, bleak, brown, flat, grey, very sombre and vapid is most likely the repute that concrete has amongst us but it really has more value that what meets the eye!
Produced at an estimated rate of five billion cubic yards per year, concrete is the second most widely consumed substance on this planet, superseded only by water. However, it is easily taken for granted as the stuff of sidewalks, roads and utilitarian structures...

Architecture is an old profession; we have known architects as early as the 12th and 13th Century BC. Leonardo Da Vinci, Brunelleschi, Michaelangelo are all from the 15th and 16th Century. But they are also considered painters and artists more than as architects alone. The ones who are more famous as architects are the 20th Century architects, some long gone, some still with us here in the 21st Century.
