Over the last two hundred years, concrete has been used to produce a remarkably rich and diverse legacy of buildings and structures increasingly recognized for their cultural significance. With growing recognition of this heritage comes the need for protection and conservation; however, concrete conservation is still a relatively new field with limited availability of guiding resources.
Conservation Principles for Concrete of Cultural Significance (2020) synthesizes current best practices in general repair of concrete and cultural conservation by providing a framework for architects, engineers, conservators, contractors, and stewards to make sound, informed decisions for conserving culturally significant concrete buildings and structures. Available in PDF format for free download.
