Just what is it that makes concrete so different and appealing

Talk

Join the IHBC, Manchester School of Architecture and the Manchester Modernist Society for a lecture by Stuart Tappin, Engineer and specialist in historic structures.

The conservation of historic buildings and structures constructed with reinforced concrete is still at an early stage when compared to more traditional materials. This presents a number of new and interesting challenges for designers, conservation specialists and building owners.

This talk looks at how a conservation-based approach can be successfully applied to repair listed structures and raises questions on society's attitudes to concrete as a building material.

Wednesday 24th February 2016 from 5:30pm for 6:00pm start -7:30pm.

The lecture will be held at the Benzie 403 Lecture Theatre, 4th Floor, Benzie Building, Cavendish Street, All Saints, Manchester, M15 6BR
