As buildings begin to age, often, their structural integrity becomes compromised. This is less a concern for newer buildings, as modern building codes and structural engineering have made buildings extremely safe, with facilities managers upholding a high level of preservation to keep them that way.
For aging buildings, it is imperative to address necessary repairs, as those left unattended can develop into bigger issues and cause significant damage, including an interruption to operations.
This white paper discusses the main causes of structural issues and how to avoid them, including:Concrete decay brought on by:
