The Southern Regional Council (CRC) of the College of Civil Engineering promotes, on 6 January 2022, at 5:00 p.m., the launch of the 1st volume of the REHABILITATION MANUAL, entitled CHARACTERISATION AND APPLICABLE LEGISLATION, published by the Portuguese Technological Platform for Construction (PTPC), coordinated by Professors Fernando F. S. Pinho (FCT NOVA) and Vasco Peixoto de Freitas (FEUP).
The authors, the chapter coordinators, the Editorial Committee and the Civil Engineering CRC of the Southern Region invite all colleagues with an interest in this subject to attend the presentation of this document, which, for health security reasons, will take place online, via Zoom (registration required). You may consult the programme and more information here.
The book, aimed at current and future civil engineers and architects involved in the design and construction phases of rehabilitation works, begins by presenting an in-depth characterization of the built heritage, namely residential buildings, school buildings and monumental heritage. Then, it presents the technical regulations concerning buildings, applicable to new constructions and, where possible, to rehabilitation processes and, finally, it describes and analyses the current legal framework of the urban rehabilitation policy.
