This is a recorded webinar from December 4, 2018.
First of its kind, ACI 563-18 joins ACI’s growing family of concrete repair industry documents aimed at demystifying concrete repair and facilitating the delivery of high quality, well-executed, cost-effective concrete repair solutions. ACI 563-18, “Specifications for Repair of Concrete in Buildings,” can be tailored for any project, big or small, using conventional concrete or proprietary repair materials for any project delivery type, from traditional design-bid-build to design-build, and for both private and public projects. Sections include typical concrete and reinforcement requirements plus those particular to repair projects, including shoring and bracing, as well as existing reinforcement and concrete surface preparation. Architects, engineers, and specifiers will appreciate the minimum basic requirements encoded into the specification, with guidance included for tailoring companion technical drawings and specifications to communicate specific project needs. Owners and contractors will appreciate the clear delineation of responsibilities, QA/QC, and documentation requirements, facilitating no surprises in procurement and execution of the work. This presentation will share the highlights of this new document and insights for its successful incorporation into concrete repair projects.
