Using concrete in a changing environment series - part 4 of 4.

The climate emergency is forcing all professions across the built environment to consider how to lower the embodied carbon of the structures they design and build. 
The 2022 Using concrete in a changing environment inaugural e-conference was dedicated to helping structural engineers understand how to assess, strengthen and reuse existing concrete structures to extend their life and reduce the impact the built environment profession has on the environment.
Featuring presentations from the e-conference, the fourth webinar in this series focuses on changes in concrete use, adaptation, and life extension.

Reason to watch

  • Hear about the implications and methods in assessing concrete structures for reuse, as showcased in two case studies projects

  • ​Discover how to determine fire performance

Intended for

  • Structural engineers

  • Designers

  • Contractors

  • Material engineers

Speakers
