Navigating California’s Updated 2024 CALGreen Building Code with Hycrete

Always at the forefront of sustainability initiatives for the commercial construction industry, the state of California is adopting a new CALGreen building code in 2024.

Officially going into effect July 1, 2024, the new CALGreen measures are an updated version of the existing 2022 code – widely considered to be America’s first sustainability-focused standard for greener, cleaner construction. Looking toward the future, another updated version of the CALGreen code is slated to take effect in 2026.

Mitigating Corrosion in Concrete Reinforcement to Reduce Structural Maintenance and Repairs

When left unchecked, corrosion in concrete steel reinforcement adds up to extremely costly building maintenance and repairs. Corrosion typically begins when moisture is wicked through the concrete via capillary absorption, then proceeds down until it reaches the steel reinforcement elements. Rebar corrosion inevitably compromises the structural integrity of the building, requiring extensive repairs or full-on […]

Understanding Reinforced Concrete Corrosion and Its Impact on Structural Integrity

Concrete corrosion and the accompanying breakdown process can ruin the aesthetics of any building. Surface stains, small cracks and weathering will quickly make the exterior look old, worn-out and tattered, creating an eyesore and potentially slashing the value of the property. However, it’s the deeper corrosion that reaches rebar and other reinforcing steel elements which […]

Hycrete360: Advanced System Approach to Concrete Waterproofing

Ensuring the longevity and durability of concrete structures is crucial for construction. One of the main challenges in this regard is preventing water penetration, which can lead to various issues such as deterioration, corrosion, and structural damage. Fortunately, technological advancements have brought innovative solutions, including integral concrete waterproofing admixtures. Understanding Concrete Waterproofing Concrete is a […]

Reduce Embodied Carbon and Liability in Concrete Construction

Concrete is the second most widely used building material in the world, with water being number one. Concrete is globally accessible, and it is versatile both structurally and aesthetically. However, concrete needs supporting materials to meet building codes and requirements. Many of these supporting materials increase embodied carbon output during construction. The most frequently used […]
