Generally, it will take about 28 days for concrete to cure to 100% of it's design strength, but this CO2 Structure can deliver beyond that strength in just one day. This feature would allow for the rapid rebuilding of earthquake affected areas. "For example, areas that underwent subsidence in the East Japan Earthquake could be reinforced using this material. That would make it possible to quickly restore strength on a par with concrete to uniform, flat areas.
As the first model example using CO2 Structure, TIS&Partners plans to install a double dome at the UIA World Congress, at Tokyo International Forum on September 25. Students from Tokyo Denki University will help to build this structure, which will hold over 150 people.
