22 March – Brighton
19 April – Bath
24 May – York
13 September – Stirling
11 October – Chester
8 November – London
The next Structural Concrete Alliance CPD seminar will be held on the 13th September. Details of which to follow shortly.
Take this opportunity to learn more about the process of corrosion and the ways to protect your buildings and structures. You will be able to pick up your CPD certificate straight after lunch. To see the full programme for the event and to book your place please click here

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING - 2016 - The AGM will be held at Ullesthorpe Hotel, Ullesthorpe, Leicestershire at 13.00 on Thursday 16 June 2016. The General Meeting will be preceded by a meeting of the Structural Concrete Alliance Industry Technical Committee at 10.00 and Alliance Publicity Committee at 10.00.
Electrochemical Protection methods have become a recognised repair method for reinforced concrete structures. It is the only practical long-term solution for chloride-induced corrosion. The Corrosion Prevention Association has developed a presentation, which fully explains the general principles of corrosion prevention and includes details of recent case studies. The presentation, accredited by the Construction CPD Certification Service, is approximately 45 minutes in duration, covering
Description of corrosion prevention systems
Assessment prior to installing corrosion prevention systems, including: comparison with other repair methods and the merits of the various electrochemical techniques; protection of critical/sensitive elements; and cautionary notes.
Corrosion prevention options, including: impressed current systems versus galvanic anode systems; power supplies; performance monitoring systems; and cathodic protection of new or undamaged structures
Design Process and Procurement.
Performance Assessment, Inspection and Maintenance .
Two CPA members, either a consultant; a specialist contractor;, or a specialist product manufacturer present the programme. Should you wish to book a presentation, please ring 01420 471614.

STRUCTURAL CONCRETE ALLIANCE AWARD 2015
The winner of the 2015 Structural Concrete Alliance Award for Repair and Refurbishment was Concrete Repair Association member Bersche Rolt for concrete repair and coating works they completed to the Barry Island Eastern Shelter in September 2014. Full details at www.structuralconcrealliance.com
TR73 CATHODIC PROTECTION OF STEEL IN CONCRETE
This Concrete Society Report provides up-to-date and technically well-founded information on cathodic protection to assist civil and structural engineers and others responsible for structures and buildings, to assess whether cathodic protection is an appropriate remedy for reinforcement corrosion problems. - Click this link for more details

A key objective of the Corrosion Prevention Association is to identify, quantify and communicate the principles and benefits of corrosion prevention to those having an influence or an interest in the design, construction, use, maintenance, preservation and investment in reinforced concrete buildings and structures.
