President’s Series – Assessment and Repair of a Mid- and High-Rise Building Using ACI 562

October 4, 2022 to October 4, 2022
Starting Time:   1 PM  EST
End Time:   2 PM  EST

Sponsor(s): American Concrete Institute

The repair of concrete structures presents unique construction challenges compared to new construction. These often include variations in the as-constructed details compared to those shown in design and construction drawings. Moreover, for buildings that have been in service for some time, the aging and deterioration of components can make construction more difficult, especially if the building must remain in service during repairs.

To describe some of these challenges, this presentation will focus on the evaluation and repair of two high-profile concrete buildings using ACI 562 – the Courthouse Square mid-rise building complex in Salem, Oregon, and the Austonian high-rise residential tower in Austin, Texas. The presentation will discuss the nature of design and construction defects that were uncovered during investigation, the types of concrete deterioration that had been experienced during service, and the types of repair and strengthening schemes that were utilized to bring the buildings into compliance with building codes.
