An online conference providing engineers with practical tools and guidance for the maintenance and repurposing of existing structures

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
