Globe Insurance Study

Globe Advisors, on behalf of the Concrete Council of Canada undertook an in-depth analysis of factors affecting teh costs to insure mid-rise (up to six-storey) wood frame residential buildings, with particular emphasis on factors contributing to htose differentials between insurance rates for such buildings compared to structures built using various non-combustible materials such as cast-in-place concrete, precast concrete, concrete blocks or insulated concrete forms.

Durability is the ability of concrete to resist weathering action, chemical attack, and abrasion while maintaining its desired engineering properties. Different concretes require different degrees of durability depending on the exposure environment and the properties desired. Concrete durability is one of the most important considerations in the design of new structures and when assessing the condition of existing structures.
