About ICRI

The International Concrete Repair Industry (ICRI) is an association of both concrete repair and restoration. It is also a leading resource for both education and information to improve the quality of repair, restoration, and protection of concrete and other structures in accordance with consensus data. Founded in 1988, ICRI is made up of contractors, engineers, and also manufacturers that work together to improve both the understanding and training of the concrete repair industry.

ICRI begin during a World of Concrete seminar in February 1988. Attendees voiced their frustration about the lack of both standards and guidelines for concrete repair. They also expressed their concern over the proliferation of unqualified contractors entering the industry.

In response to these concerns, the International Association of Concrete Repair Specialists was then formed. It began with a formal organizational meeting in Naperville, Illinois during May 1988. The attendees also consisted of 66 repair specialists. In 1993, the name was then changed to the International Concrete Repair Institute.

The organizing members agreed on the following statement of purpose: To improve the quality of concrete restoration, repair, and protection through education of, and communication among, the members and those who use its services.

In 1989, ICRI then published the first issue of the Concrete Repair Bulletin. Then, the first technical guide was published. Afterward, this spurned the first chapter of ICRI.
