Short description
The whole area of the renovation was previously covered with a magnesite screed. Although Remmers have options to top such a substrate, the decision was made to remove the Magnesite as it was showing signs of deterioration in many areas and would always have been a concern to the client. Once removed, the substrate needed a new vapour barrier and significant levelling to give an even surface for future operations. The floor was primed with 2 coats of Epoxy MT100 and levelled with Optiplan Base screed between 10- 20mm thick across the full area. This was installed in 4 consecutive days applying over 1000m2 per day. Once left to cure and dry over the weekend, a layer of Epoxy Flex PH was applied at 2mm thick and finally topped with a slip resistant coat of Epoxy BS3000 SG incoporating Aluminium Oxide.

The structure showed cracks in some places, for which there were different causes. Improved statics and higher load capacity were achieved by stiffening the structures, frictional connection of the disturbed foundation and decoupling the components gate, passage hall and gate houses components. Particularly on the western side, intense blackening of the rock surface had built up, which was strongly interlocked with the ground. The deposits were composed of a mixture of soot and plaster. The cleaning process carried out in 1990 with the help of water could only result in a superficial cleaning. In 2002, the newly developed method of particle beam cleaning and cleaning by laser made it possible to remove soot and plaster without destroying the original surface.

The damage patterns indicated a lack of frost resistance as well as no protection against driving rain. The listed façade required extensive frost and moisture protection, but was not allowed to undergo any visual changes.
