Farmington Hills, Mich. (November 10, 2016) MNL-3(16), "Guide to the Code for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Buildings," is now available. Published jointly by American Concrete Institute and International Concrete Repair Institute, this guide received support and funding from the Strategic Development Council (SDC). SDC’s concrete repair initiative, Vision 2020, set a goal in 2006 to establish a repair code as part of an inter-industry effort to improve the efficiency, safety, and quality of concrete repair and protection activities. ACI Committee 562, Evaluation, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Concrete Buildings, was created in response to the Vision 2020 efforts.
The guide has been developed to serve as a companion to ACI 562-16, "Code Requirements for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures and Commentary." Although specifically developed for licensed design professionals, the guide also serves to provide insight into the use and benefits of ACI 562 for contractors, material manufacturers, building owners, and building officials.
Learn more about the updated 562-16 code by visiting the 562 Repair Code Portal and join the conversation by following #ConcreteRepair.
The ACI Foundation was established in 1989 to promote progress, innovation, and collaboration, and is a wholly owned and operated non-profit subsidiary of the American Concrete Institute. Three councils make up the ACI Foundation; the Strategic Development Council, committed to resolving the issues of new technology acceptance within the concrete industry; the Concrete Research Council, which funds and assists in the research of new concrete technologies; and the Scholarship Council which facilitates student fellowships and scholarships.
