16 June, 2014

On 12 June 2014, the Faculty of Natural Science, Engineering and Technology (FCNET) of the Lusophone University of Porto (ULP) held the third edition of the Rehabilitation of Infrastructures and Buildings (RIE2014) conference in Porto.

This conference aims to discuss solutions for the rehabilitation of infrastructure and buildings, methodologies for inspection of special infrastructure, techniques and methods of reusing materials and best practices in the context of rehabilitation, among others.

GEG participated in this conference with the presentation of the rehabilitation design project of the Porto’s Sports Pavilion, which is located in Porto and had opened in 1952. The engineering design project was developed between 2007 and 2011 in collaboration with the architect José Carlos Loureiro, who is the author of the original project. The project included two complementary programs: the rehabilitation of the existing building and the structural design of the new adjacent buildings.

In the process of refurbishment of the Porto’s Sports Pavilion, the structure has been exhaustively studied, monitored and evaluated before the intervention.
