Leca® CPD presentation

All Civil Engineers and Architects are required to make a commitment and to maintain and enhance their competence in engineering. At Leca® we offer a nationwide CPD seminars which provides an in depth study of Leca® Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate and its powerful properties within structural and geotechnical applications.

We believe that learning should never stop and neither should your development and your commitment to your career within civil engineering and architecture. The use of Leca® Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate is so vast and encompasses so many facets of civil engineering thanks to its incredible fundamental properties – it is important for all practicing civil engineers and architects to understand and learn about the latest developments, innovations and discoveries for Leca® Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate.

CPD Conference 1

The current trend within Structural and Geotechnical Engineering is finding the ideal product and solutions which are sustainable and offer eco-friendly results but can also reduce project costs and development time. At Leca® we believe we produce a material which is the future of engineering and our case studies across an array of civil engineering projects make this clear.


• 85%* less bulk density
• 75%* reduction of horizontal earth pressure to retaining structures
• Reduced settlement periods and increased stability
• Superb insulating and free drainage properties
• Resistant to extreme temperatures, moisture and chemical attack
• 100% inert and contains no harmful substances or gases
• Requires less vehicles for delivery – up to 70m³ per load
• Speed of site installation – up to 16 times faster production*
* on average when compared to traditional fills

Leca® Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate has been used extensively in structural and geotechnical projects for over 60 years for lightening road and railway embankments, insulating and filling of swimming pool surrounds, reducing pressure within quay extensions, lightweight fill in foundations and behind retaining walls, general load compensation, within structural elements, insulating and lightening pipelines, drainage and insulating sports pitches and courts, lightening the load over tunnels and bridge development and much more..

The engineering possibilities of Leca® Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate are endless and it is only the imagination which can restrict a civil engineer's or architect's ambition and vision for Leca® Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate.
