We are very pleased to announce that we will be joined by the new Deputy Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development, Mr. Greg Meredith. As the most senior civil servant in charge of the construction sector, Mr. Meredith will be speaking to members about how he has seen the industry respond to the pressures of COVID-19, and what we might expect in 2021 from the government’s perspective.

Seminar on Restoration of Reinforced Concrete Historic Buildings by Eliseo Conciatori Join B&CRAO on Wednesday, January 15th for a presentation on “Restoration of Reinforced Concrete Historic Buildings”. Eliseo Conciatori from Vector Construction will explain the realkalization process and provide case histories of two prominent historic buildings. When carbonation of environmentally exposed concrete occurs, steel reinforcing corrodes causing concrete damage, such as delaminations, cracking, spalling and it eventually affects the building’s appearance. Falling concrete debris may also cause serious safety issues. The best and most long term method to stop and permanently prevent reinforcement corrosion in carbonated concrete structures is by another electro-chemical process called realkalization. WHEN: 6:30pm-9:00pm, Wednesday, January 15th, 2020 WHERE: Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel, 801 Dixon Rd, Toronto, ON M9W 1J5
