Nearly $130 billion dollars is needed to repair deteriorating infrastructures throughout North America.
And while steel and concrete may be the most popular methods for reinforcing structures, they are labor-intensive and time-consuming.
CIISolutions was formed in 2018 by Dr. Bahira Abdulsalam to provide a better solution. They specialize in the repair and strengthening of structures like bridges, parking structures, and seawalls with Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP).
CII Solutions is an engineering and manufacturing company based in Canada, and they provide advanced, sustainable, and cost-efficient solutions for the civil engineering sector.
This week, Dr. Abdulsalam joins me on the show to talk about the work they are doing at CII Solutions.
Dr. Bahira Abdulsalam has a Masters's Degree in structural strengthening using composites, a Pd.D. in FRP internal reinforcement, and a Post-doctorate Industrial Fellowship in composite manufacturing.
