Innovations in the Life Cycle of Concrete Structures

Measuring the impacts of buildings, assemblies and products can be complex. Every design decision from product selection to envelope design and construction can have an impact on the environment throughout the project’s service life. The A/E/C community as well as owners now have the ability to adopt a holistic life cycle perspective to provide solutions that minimize the environmental impacts while ensuring resilience to natural hazards.

This presentation explores how new metrics, manufacturing methods and research are enhancing concrete products to meet the challenges of climate adoption.
