Conservation of historic concrete structures

Research project

Project period
2020 - 2022

Department of Conservation

Financier

Short description

In recent years the conservation of concrete structures has become increasingly important. However, the knowledge and skill to do this is deficient. This is largely due to the complexity of the material and the large variation over time, and furthermore the lack of relevant training. The purpose of this project is to produce a handbook for the conservation of concrete based on experiences from the field of practice and collaboration between the various experts needed to both convey knowledge of the material and offer training in the field. The purpose is also to ensure that the constructions of industrial society can be preserved as modern built heritage and resource for society.
