Concrete Column Replacement Programme
Resolved: That the findings of the review be noted and the column replacement programme in its present form be approved.
Reason: Council Officers and the specialist structural engineer consider that the identified columns represent a credible risk of structural failing or collapse. The manufacturers’ serviceable life of a concrete column is 20 years. The City of York Council has not installed any concrete columns since 1997 and there are no records of installation dates. However from testing information some columns date back to 1970.
