Using concrete in a changing environment series - part two of four.

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 second webinar in this series focuses on reuse, assessment and strengthening.

Reasons to watch

  • Understand the challenges implied in the assessment and strengthening of existing concrete structures and recent developments in standards

  • Discover ways to assess and refurbish reinforced concrete frames

  • Hear about concrete recovery for reuse

Intended for

  • Structural engineers

  • Designers

  • Contractors

  • Material engineers
