The Association for Preservation Technology International (APT) is a multi-disciplinary, membership organization dedicated to promoting the best technology for protecting historic
structures and their settings. Membership in APT provides exceptional opportunities for networking and the exchange of ideas.
APT Northeast is a chapter of the Association for Preservation Technology International encompassing New England, New York State, and northern New Jersey. This chapter was originally
founded as the APT New York Chapter in the mid-1980s and the organization was restructured in 2003 to include our current territory and membership. At present we have over 300 members.
ICRI had its origins at a World of Concrete seminar in February 1988. Attendees voiced their frustration about the lack of 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 formed, with a formal organizational meeting in Naperville, Illinois, May 21, 1988, attended by 66 repair specialists. In 1993 the name was changed to the International Concrete Repair Institute.
