Congratulations to the other recipients, and a big thank you to ACRA for a great event and the work they are doing for the industry.
ACRA was formed in 1991 with the aim of providing a forum to promote discussion and an exchange of views in the concrete repair and remedial building industry to advance the technology and practice in the remedial industry and associated activities.
The Association’s members are at the forefront of concrete repair and remedial technology worldwide and include companies and individuals with an interest in repairing and protecting concrete, including specialist consultants and engineers, specialist concrete repair, remedial building and waterproofing contractors, specialist materials suppliers and asset owners.
“The Quay Quarter Tower (QQT) structure in Sydney underwent a process of carbon fibre strengthening as part of its renovation and repurposing.
CFRP is an extremely high-strength and lightweight material that is often used to reinforce concrete structures.
CFRP strengthening typically involves externally bonding the carbon fibre elements to the surface of the concrete using high-strength structural resins, creating a composite material that is extremely strong and durable.
The result is a concrete structure that is now able to withstand the requirements of the enlarged building envelope with essentially zero impact on the amenity of the building.
Other ACRA Members involved were BG&E and Sika.”
