Durability Means Longer Lasting, More Efficient Structures
Durability is a significant sustainable attribute of concrete because it will not rust, rot, or burn, requiring less energy and resources over time to repair or replace. Concrete builds durable, long-lasting structures including sidewalks, building foundations and envelopes, as well as roadways and bridges. As the most widely used building material in the world, concrete structures have withstood the test of time for more than 2,000 years. Because of its longevity, it can be a viable solution for environmentally responsible design.
