Reinforcing the foundation of building and parking infrastructure can be challenging. As an engineer or contractor, you know there is a great deal to consider when planning for infrastructure repairs. Restoring, rehabilitating and strengthening concrete and masonry structures provides considerable cost savings over replacing materials that have been deteriorated by poor maintenance, weather, design inadequacies and other factors.
