Facade Protection and Refurbishment, Concrete Protection and Repairs

Description

The neo-baroque parish church of St. Martinus was built as a skeleton structure in a concrete / reinforced concrete construction. The exterior façade showed cracks in the wall shell, plaster and concrete. In addition, cavities, shearing off and spalling of concrete mouldings as well as iron corrosion were found. For a long-term restoration and preservation of the building, the concrete shell was partially replaced by a brick shell. In the course of the renovation, all corroded iron structures were also treated and corrosion protection was applied. Cracks and crevices were filled and decorative elements were preserved or restored. The plaster surfaces were reconstructed according to historical models. They were given a completely new coat of paint for a uniform overall appearance.

Facade Protection and Refurbishment

Description

The concrete surfaces of the balcony parapets were repaired and a surface protection was applied. This has a hardening effect, is alkali-resistant, open to water vapour diffusion and water-repellent. The prepared substrate was then painted with a mineral paint in accordance with a specified colour concept. In order to implement this individual concept, a special colour shade was produced that exactly met the customer's requirements. The balcony fronts were replaced and covered with a metal sheet.

Facade Protection and Refurbishment, Concrete Protection and Repairs

Description

One part of the two-year renovation of the South Bank Centre was a large-scale concrete restoration of the exposed concrete surfaces in the interior of the world-famous art rooms. The walls and ceilings in the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Hayward Gallery and Purcell Room were restored to their original state by means of colour matching. In order to clean the surface from dirt, the room was prepared under strict observation of the room temperature and relative humidity. The film-forming peel-off paste Arte Mundit was applied in the required thickness to remove the surface impurities. This created a cleaner, brighter environment.

Facade Protection and Refurbishment

Description

On the façade surfaces of Kaispeicher A, there was a lot of efflorescence and lime aging, both signs of penetrating moisture. 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.

Description

In the course of the regular test inspection in accordance with DIN 1076, the chloride concentration and the carbonation depth of the structural concrete was determined using a mobile bridge inspection device on an area of approx. 12,000m², in addition to the tests prescribed by the standard. Furthermore a random measurement of the concrete cover as well as an endoscopy of the tendon cladding tubes were carried out via the ventilation tubes. The result: urgent need for renovation.

Facade Protection and Refurbishment, Building Waterpoofing and Refurbishment

Description

The restoration of the building, which is over one hundred years old, was a complex task. The facade first had to be cleaned with special product due to the high degree of contamination with heavy efflorescence and sintering, The damaged joints were then repaired. The white natural stone elements of the façade were desalinated with compresses and then re-profiled and supplemented. This was followed by stone consolidation and hydrophobing. A mineral sealing was applied in the base area, which was finished with a new layer of plaster. Therefore protecting the building from further moisture ingress.

Concrete Protection and Repairs

Description

The reinforcement had too little concrete coverage and the quality of the concrete also varied. This led to corrosion damage and concrete spalling. Since 2005, stricter regulations of the food law and hygiene regulations have been in force, which had to be observed. This meant that all surfaces had to be cleaned with a high-pressure cleaner at 500 bar water pressure in order to reach solid ground and to determine the true extent of the damage.

Concrete Protection and Repairs

Description

Considerable damage was visible at digester No. 4 as a result of a biogenic sulphuric acid attack (BSK attack) to the concrete. The structural condition analysis revealed advanced damage to the concrete surface. In some areas it showed indentations of up to 5 cm. The dome area was also to be given a new coating.

Facade Protection and Refurbishment

Description

The towers are in motion, striving apart and back together again as the seasons change. The 800-year-old sandstone disappeared under crusts, and weathering and salts harmful to the building also played their part in destroying it.

Description

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.

Facade Protection and Refurbishment

Description

The microbiological load of the building bricks and the high mobility of the stored hygroscopic magnesium sulphates required adequate moisture protection in the area of the paint setting systems. Due to the high salt loads, a hydrophobic impregnation was ruled out. In order to minimize the water ingress via the facade surface and the associated damage processes, a silicone resin paint was selected.

Description

Passing years and environmental damage had taken an inevitable toll and the external stonework of Sligo City Hall and required urgent repair. Remmers RM was used in place of replacement stone to give a cost effective but authentic looking repair. Remmers restoration mortar is designed to behave like natural stone in wear and permeability as well as appearance.
