Maintaining, upgrading and reusing existing structures for extended use is a more carbon efficient alternative to demolishing and building anew. It also offers potential for cost and time savings and societal benefits.
This conference will bring together experts to share case studies and practical guidance to help structural engineers:
Identify potential opportunities for reuse and renovation
Understand how to manage risk in the design process
Assess the existing capacity of a structure
Perform effective site investigations
Adapt existing buildings beyond their original design life and meet modern demands
Extend the life of bridges and other civil structures
Advocate for the reuse of existing structures and challenge the perception that it is a less favourable to new construction
