APPRAISAL OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES, REPAIR MATERIALS AND REHABILITATION
DATE : FRIDAY, 18TH SEPTEMBER 2015 VENUE : NUSS GUILD HOUSE, SUNTEC CITY
ABSTRACT All concrete structures during its operational life may require strengthening and/or rehabilitation. The common reasons requiring such are change of use or deterioration due to corroding steel in reinforced concrete. While the range of choice of repair materials and rehabilitation techniques are wide in variety, an assessment is necessary in most cases, whether it is determining in-situ strength of concrete or the agents causing the corrosion of the steel in concrete. This seminar brings to the construction industry experts in their own field who will speak about assessment of concrete in particular with strength, materials technology and rehabilitation techniques
SPEAKERS Dr Tam Chat Tim, NUS Brian Williams, BASF Liao Haixue, Vector Corrosion Technologies

Recently a 50 years old building collapsed in an urban area of Hong Kong. Four occupants were killed and a number of them injured. This incident raised an alert of the city over the Hong Kong urban area. The government will enact a law for Mandatory Building Inspection Scheme (MBIS) for old buildings of 30 years old and the implementation of it will be end of the year. A registry of Registered Inspector (RI) will be kept by HK Building Authority to liaise with building owners and carry out the building inspection. The RI shall be RPE of HKIE. A profession named as Building Diagnosticians will emerge to actually conduct the inspection. HKAS will offer accreditation of building diagnostic testing. HKCI will publish a Code of Practice for Condition Assessment for Old Buildings. Ir. Cheung will talk about this implementation of MBIS from the perspectives of HKIE, HKAS and HKCI.
Networking & Dinner – 8.15 – 9.00pm
