Time: 10.00 a.m. – 12.00 p.m. (Registration start at 9.45 a.m.)
Venue: ZOOM Application
Speaker: Ir. Saiffuddin Bin Sheafi, MACCAFERRI (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.


The construction industry is the top global consumer of raw materials, contributing 25% to 30% world’s carbon emissions. Therefore, sustainable option on road & embankment is crucial for the client to minimize concrete and steel structures on their system, at the same time, to increase cost-effectiveness and performances on construction lead times. Public awareness regarding requirements on the environmental quality solution has increased dramatically. Less concrete and greener solutions are implemented in most of the development schemes nowadays. Sustainable engineering solutions on the road & embankment have become equally important in reducing carbon imprint emission, with the option to green approach as well as eliminating concrete usage.

Whether constructing a gravel forestry track over soft soil or resurfacing a multi-lane highway, there are various solutions to provide rigorous demands of today’s road. Resources are becoming scarce, and road pavement require a longer service life for less money. In our effort to reduce materials costs, Maccaferri’s leading range of pavement and ground stabilization products can help achieve these goals.

The speaker will introduce the up-to-date sustainable engineering solutions on the road and embankment with eco-friendly, light, and cost-competitive structures as well as the ecological footprint of each building site.
