Concrete heritage buildings from the 20th century are at risk, due to the absence of recognition of the historic values of these buildings as well as to the lack of knowledge of the specific characteristics of historic concrete structures. Frequently, solutions developed for repair of contemporary structures are applied to historic concrete buildings, resulting in interventions that are neither compatible nor durable.
This Colloquium aims at providing building owners, employees from planning and engineering offices, construction companies, concrete experts, architects, and representatives of authorities, with the latest developments in the field of conservation of concrete historic buildings, as resulting from the practice and international research projects.
On behalf of the organizing team, the members of WTA – International (TC5 Concrete) and of the JPI-CH CONSECH20 project, we cordially invite you to the 7th Colloquium WTA – Strategies for the Conservation of Historic Concrete Buildings and Structures.
