Specialist Service – IS465: Mica / Pyrite in Blockwork
A number of properties in parts of Ireland have experienced issues with the failure of concrete blockwork in walls of buildings due to the presence of mica or pyrite. A new Irish Standard has been developed for the Assessment, testing and categorisation of damaged buildings incorporating concrete blocks containing certain deleterious materials. This code is known as IS 465:2018.
Engineers Ireland have formed a Register of chartered engineers who have the necessary direct professional experience, competence and specialist training in accordance with the requirements set out on I.S. 465:2018 – Assessment, testing and categorisation of damaged buildings incorporating concrete blocks containing certain deleterious materials’.
