Short description
This car park for Tesco required 3000m2 of anti-slip floor coatings. The car park decks were coated in Epoxy BS2000 Clear and a Remmers Epoxy BS3000 SG slip resistant system was applied to the walkways and parking bays. The soffits were coated with Remmers Concrete Acrylic which was used for its excellent anti-carbonation characteristics and resistance to weathering.

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.
