Historic Concrete Repair

This course is aimed at anyone working with historic buildings or anyone who wants to further their understanding of historic reinforced and unreinforced concrete, and how to repair it. The course will be provided as two talks which will consider the history of concrete and the philosophy and approaches to concrete repair, and secondly the technical options and outline specifications for repair. 

The lectures will be provided by Ed Morton of the Morton Partnership and Michael Balletta of Concrete Repairs Limited.
