If we are listing more and more buildings and structures from the 20th Century, many of which will be of reinforced concrete construction, then we need to know how to fix them and prolong their lives. We have a huge variety of structures and buildings of reinforced concrete construction across the country. Research and analysis of these buildings has helped inform their appropriate repair, but there are many challenges ahead. Join us and learn from our gathered experts in this field for what should be a very informative and enjoyable day.
This masterclass is aimed at those specifying or working with reinforced concrete, whether buildings or structures including engineers, architects, surveyors, building contractors, heritage professionals and students of the built environment.
