The deterioration of Reinforced Concrete structures is recognized as a major problem worldwide. Apart from requiring regular maintenance, many structures require extensive Repair and Rehabilitation. Over a while, as these structures become older, we find in them certain degradation or deterioration with resultant distress manifested in the form of cracking, splitting, delaminating, corrosion etc.
Consequently, the need for repair and rehabilitation has grown considerably in recent years. Repair and Rehabilitation methods need to be designed with consideration for the anticipated or desired remaining service life of the structure. A distinction must be made between repairs and rehabilitation intended to stop deterioration fully and those merely aimed at slowing down deterioration processes for a limited period. Specialization and a deep understanding are needed in Repair and Rehabilitation works. One such group of specialization is Hitech Civil Engineering Services (M) Pvt. Ltd.
