Each of the Associations that make up the Structural Concrete Alliance offers a range of publications and technical guidance documents providing essential news and advice on concrete repair, corrosion prevention and sprayed concrete techniques.

The writing development and production of each document is overseen by the Alliance Technical Committee, which consists of representatives from each association. As a result these technical guidance documents offer best practice guidance which has been peer-reviewed and ratified by representatives from across the entire industry sector.

All of the documents are available for free download from the relevant Association site. You will need to register on the relevant association site to gain access.
