New Concrete Building Guide Available

The guide’s project examples demonstrate how the code for concrete building repair is put into effect for older projects or for new constructions

 

A new publication for professionals in the concrete industry, Guide to the Code for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Buildings, is now available from the American Concrete Institute (ACI).

The ACI and International Concrete Repair Institute published guide provides assistance and examples to managers involved in the repair of concrete buildings.

Published jointly by ACI and International Concrete Repair Institute, the guide has been developed to be used in accordance with ACI 562-16 Code Requirements for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures and Commentary.

The chapter guides include information on several topics related to use of the code including: applicability of ACI 562, selection of the building code for the repair design and preliminary evaluations to determine a compliance method for meeting the code requirements.

The guide’s project examples demonstrate how the code for concrete building repair is put into effect for rehabilitating older projects or for new constructions. These real-world examples are based on actual projects and demonstrate how ACI 562 could be used when repairs are designed.

The guide is available as a printed or digital book. To learn more and order/download the Guide to the Code for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Buildings at www.concrete.org.
