Highlights from the 2021 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.  

Highlights from the 2021 conference are now available to view on-demand; case studies and practical guidance to help structural engineers: 

  • The business case for the resuse of buildings - Steve Fernandez, Director - Arup
  • Challenges in extending the life of bridges - Joanna Bonnett, Vice President - COWI
