HSW Program – ACI 562: What you need to know about the Concrete Repair Code

In partnership with the Building Codes & Regulations Committee of AIA Detroit

Free event, 1 Health Safety, Welfare (HSW) AIA Learning Unit


The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has developed a repair code that provides standard requirements for evaluating existing concrete buildings and the subsequent repair, rehabilitation, and strengthening of those structures. ACI 562 committee member Khaled Nahlawi will present an overview of the development and organization of the updated ACI 562-19. The presentation will include reason for the motivation behind the development of the repair Code, the overall philosophy and organization for the material, and examples of how the code is applied to structural concrete repair and rehabilitation projects. The presentation will highlight important aspects pertaining to the engineer, contractor, inspector, and code official responsible for review and oversight of these types of projects.

Learning Objectives:
1. Explain the objective of the concrete repair code, which is to produce a document that provides a uniform set of requirements that is flexible and addresses the overall repair issues.
2. Determine what design code should be implemented for assessment and repair or strengthening of an existing structure.
3. Identify new members added and their connection to an existing structure are based upon the current building code.
4. Describe the durability design requirements that should address project specific conditions to ensure durability consistent with owner requirements.
