Bryan Perrie, MD of The Concrete Institute, has received the Concrete Society of Southern Africa (CSSA) Inland Branch’s 2017 Chairman’s Award for his “tireless work in the concrete industry for more than 30 years”.
Naming Perrie as the 2017 recipient of the CSSA Inland Branch’s prestigious award at a function in Johannesburg recently, Johan van Wyk, chairman of the Branch, said apart from leading The Concrete Institute, Perrie is a global authority on concrete floors and pavements.
“Bryan was also a judge for the CSSA’s 2017 Fulton Awards for excellence in the use of concrete, and in taking the lead for the judging of this very important event in the concrete industry, spent more than a month travelling throughout southern Africa to ensure that the best projects were honoured by the CSSA.
“Furthermore, Bryan’s input and investigations into various industry-related disputes has made him the ‘go-to concrete technologist’, always approachable when assistance is required. He is a member of various national and international bodies and notably the Chairman of the TC81 SC01 committee of the SABS where he has been leading the way in reviewing, writing and setting concrete standards,” the CSSA citation adds.
