About the Topic:
Recognizing that the existing building inventory in coastal British Columbia includes many mass-concrete buildings, this presentation will deal with the evaluation, repair and renewal methods for these types of structures, including parkades and residential towers.
The evaluation stage focuses on the visual review of the concrete structure and destructive and non-destructive testing methods used to evaluate the condition of the structure. The repair and renewal stage focuses on repair and protection options for the structure.
