Institution of Surveyors, Engineers and Architects (PUJA) Student Chapter, comprising 29 Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering students from Universiti Teknologi Brunei (UTB), visited Readymix Concrete (B) Sdn Bhd to understand the detailed process of concrete manufacturing – from the acquisition of raw materials, quality control, necessary testing of raw materials, production process, and delivery.
The visit was led by Readymix’s Technical Manager Howell Dosal Carcillar, who has been with the company since 2012 and was a Concrete Specialist in Dubai for four years prior to his employment in Brunei Darussalam.
The company’s Marketing Executive Zara Laila binti Abdul Hadi stated that, “Readymix has a good relationship with PUJA. PUJA and Readymix have managed a few charity seminars together over the years. The company is always ready to welcome the public to our plant sites. We are very keen on educating the public on the detailed process as to how we have managed to maintain the quality of our concrete for the past 35 years and how fly ash and other innovations have played a big role in that process.”
