CANC Maintaining Civil Infrastructure NW Conference 2019

A regional conference examining the latest approaches to infrastructure asset management.


In recent years a number infrastructure asset management industry guidance documents have been produced by CIRIA. Written in collaboration with industry, this suite of guidance includes: Whole-life infrastructure asset management: good practice guidance for civil infrastructure (C677), Intelligent monitoring of concrete structures (C661), Design for Fibre Reinforced Polymer Bridges(C779), Hidden defects in bridges: Guidance for detection and maintenance (C764) and various conditional appraisal and remedial treatment guidance documents. In addition, further industry guidance is currently being prepared on Structural health monitoring (SHM) systems for civil infrastructure (RP1066) and Deterioration and degradation modelling of infrastructure assets (RP1047).
