Concrete Quarterly (CQ) is produced by The Concrete Centre four times a year and is free to download.
First published in 1947, CQ continues to champion iconic concrete projects.
CQ encompasses design guidance, aspiration, inspiration, vision and latest projects. It is aimed at all members of the project team and demonstrates the potential of concrete in terms of architectural vision, structural solutions, best practice and performance.
