- The ARPHO Conference and General Assembly took place on 11 November in Madrid.
The COVID-19 pandemic made face-to-face meetings impossible. However, the members of the Spanish Association for the Repair, Reinforcement and Protection of Concrete, ARPHO, got together again for a working day, where they took the opportunity to hold a General Assembly.
The participants were able to enjoy two conference sessions with different topics of interest for the guild. Firstly, Ms. Nuria Rebolledo, from IETcc, gave the first conference of the day, called “Control of execution in repair, reinforcement and protection works”. Later, Mr. Ceferino Díaz (INGENIEROS ASESORES) and Mr. Leendert de Haan (INECO) gave a talk on “Instrumentation and monitoring of structures”.
In the second part, “New features of the structural code on repair, reinforcement and protection of concrete”, given by Ms. Carmen Andrade (CIMNE – UPC) and the joint review of the new ARPHO information guide were the activities chosen. The intense day concluded with the association’s General Assembly and lunch and colloquium, where colleagues shared their experiences on the sector.
