Seminar
Assessment and Conservation of Modernist Concrete
Concrete technology proliferated in post-war Europe as engineers and architects began producing ground-breaking building designs and civil structures with structural concrete. For modern practitioners and those responsible for stewardship of post-war era heritage, maintaining these concrete structures while making them more sustainable can be technically challenging.

It is important to understand the significance and construction of these concrete structures, including material constituents of the concrete, unique characteristics, and extent and causes of deterioration as well as project requirements and goals. Proper repair techniques and conservation treatments are critical to preserving their significance and value. This webinar will discuss the history and development of 20th century concrete technology with case studies that demonstrate a range of repair and conservation approaches.

By the end of the CPD you should have a greater understanding of:
- How to define approaches for the maintenance of heritage concrete, including regular assessment, in order to establish baseline conditions, identify needed repairs, and develop a maintenance program
- How to identify inspection tasks, including monitoring protection systems and review of sealant joints, expansion joints, and protection systems
- How to describe the investigation process, including the importance of laboratory analysis, trial samples, mock-ups, full-scale repairs, and quality control measures

Successful Implementation of Vibration Control during Museum Construction Projects
Museum expansions and renovations abound, and associated vibrations caused by heavy construction are potentially harmful to artwork and to sensitive elements of museum buildings themselves. Protection of these objects throughout a construction project calls for a reliable method of vibration control. In this CPD, leading experts explain the effects of vibrations on humans, buildings, and artwork. Then, a scientific methodology for vibration control is outlined. Feedback on how the methodology has worked in practice is then provided by a conservator and collections specialist. By the end of the CPD you should have a greater understanding of:
- The nature of construction vibrations and their potential effects on the human body, buildings and artwork
- The basics of a three-phase scientific methodology to successfully carry out vibration control during a museum construction project
- A conservator’s and a collection specialist’s perspective on how the vibration control methodology worked at their institutions
