The Structural Repairs Association is a knowledge sharing organisation. It is passionate about improving the skills of the specialist workforce through industry-specific training and qualification.
The SRA supports the development and promotion of educational seminars on the causes, signs, diagnosis and remedies for building failure. It encourages members to recognise the importance of employing qualified technicians for the design and implementation of structural repair projects.
Manufacturing members regularly present CPD seminars to Engineers, Architects and Surveyors across the UK. Most offer product training to contractors, the content of which is often adapted to suit specific needs.
Training courses aim to educate delegates in typical causes of masonry, concrete and/or foundation failures. They include instruction as to how structural faults can be reliably repaired using innovative products and up-to-date repair techniques. Training focuses on solutions best placed to restore the long-term structural integrity of domestic and commercial structures, including historic and listed buildings.
Selecting a contracting member of the association can help to ensure that property repairs and protection are fit for purpose and are appropriate to the service-life expectations for the structure. SRA registered contractors focus on the benefits of robust repair methods with regard to longevity, cost-effectiveness, project timescale and environmental impact.
Many traditional structures can benefit from appropriate conservation and consolidation by specially trained trades people. Members of the Structural Repairs Association aim to preserve and develop industry skills and knowledge. They strive to deliver appropriate repairs, strengthening and maintenance of distressed building structures.
