    Concrete deterioration in Quebec, Canada

    This major court case, with a value in excess of CA$200,000,000, related to premature deterioration of concrete as a result of the use of coarse aggregates containing the iron sulphide mineral pyrrhotite. RSK’s involvement included assessing the actions and professionalism of the third-party laboratories and consultancies that provided guidance to the quarry operators and concrete producers regarding the suitability, or otherwise, of the aggregate. The quarry was co-owned by two competitor concrete producers.

    The decision has not yet been published owing to COVID-19 delays.
