The Concrete Association of Estonia has published a new guideline BÜ2-2017: Concrete and Reinforced Concrete. Specification, Technology, Quality, Conformity Assessment. It is a new, updated edition of the guideline of the Concrete Association published in 2006.
“Over the decade from the publication of the first edition of the BÜ2 there have been important changes in the legislation, standards as well as several instruction manuals of both the European Union and Estonia,” said Tiit Roots, chairman of the management board of the Concrete Association of Estonia. “Publishing the new, updated guideline is relevant and necessary in every way,” Roots added.
Authors of the guideline are Associate Professor Emeritus Toomas Laur and Professor Irene Lill of the Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture of the School of Engineering of the Tallinn University of Technology.
"All instructions from the Concrete Company, including BÜ2, have been designed with the aim of helping building contractors, designers and builders, and in this regard, due to the lack of Estonian national building norms, it is intended to fill this gap," said Toomas Laur. "In reference to the contracts, the guidelines could be binding on the assessment of the quality of concrete and reinforced concrete structures. Guides can also be manuals for manufacturers and other points of contact with concrete and reinforced concrete structures, including universities and vocational training centers, "added Laur.
According to Toomas Laur, the instructions of the Concrete Association could be accepted by the parties of the construction process in carrying out corresponding technical-economic analyzes, concluding works contracts or taking other relevant decisions.
