Second Life: options for repair and refurbishment of structural concrete
Venue: Clayton Hotel Liffey Valley, Dublin
Concrete structures are designed to last for at least fifty years and often beyond. Efforts are increasingly turning towards improving the durability traits of concrete to ensure even longer lasting structures. This longer-term view is also being applied to existing buildings and structures whereby refurbishment and repair contributes to the extension of expected service life. This can result in increasing the sustainability of building resources through the reuse and adaptation of concrete buildings to meet future needs, and infrastructure that continues to meet its operating requirements beyond the original intention.
In this seminar our experienced panel of speakers will provide practical information and guidance on issues to be considered, their assessment and options available for repairing concrete structures.
This seminar has been designed for all those in mid to senior level positions. Design Engineers, Local Authority Engineers, Resident Engineers, Main and Specialist Sub-Contractors will all find this seminar very beneficial. Asset Managers and Clients will also benefit from attending.
