Building Waterpoofing and Refurbishment, Facade Protection and Refurbishment, Coating for Windows and Wood Elements

Description

The buildings of "New Holland" have been restored several times over the years and have been repeatedly supplemented with new buildings and extensions. All buildings were damaged inside as well as on the facade and roof. The brick facades in particular, which were heavily soaked through, posed a major problem. In addition, damage to the masonry and the cladding of the plinths was detected. During the restoration of the brick masonry, the varying condition as well as the heterogeneous nature proved to be a particular challenge. There was also high salt content, which could be damaging to the building and therefore had to be reduced. Finally, the aim was to achieve the most harmonious possible colour matching of the stone surfaces.

Description

The lake itself had been drained since 2014 but had significant cracking and deterioration on the slab joints. In order to have a succesful restoration, the lake needed to become watertight again. The solution was available using Remmers MB2K waterproofing in conjunction with Waterstop B240 banding. WHY? The existing joint filler material within the lake was bituminous in nature. MB2K adheres excellently to both new and old bitumen coatings, without the need to abrade or mechanically prepare them, a critical advantage in this instance. Removal or the existing damaged fillers would have been a time consuming and costly excercise. Having waterproofed the lake bed and walls, extensive restoration then took place on the stone staircases and planters around the site. Colour matched restoration mortars and Funcosil hydrophobic treatments were used extensively.

Floor Coatings

Description

In order to facilitate orientation around the store, a coloured customer guidance system was to be installed on a floor area of over 1,800 m² to the respective product displays. With the colour-contrasting "lane", individual departments in the supermarket were highlighted to help guide the customer through the market. This also allowed the shopping trolleys to glide much more quietly than they would over tiled floor.

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.

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.

Facade Protection and Refurbishment

Description

The fragments of the building showed different weathering and strength profiles due to the long period of weathering. These had to be compensated by different stone strengtheners. In addition, the chemical processes within the limestone were blocked, thereby preventing future absorption of water and dirt. The leveling of the fragments was also an important point in order to achieve a uniform appearance. Shattered relief blocks had to be glued together. Some of the limestone showed pronounced swelling and shrinking due to swellable clay minerals. This process had to be stopped. As there were no completely preserved Sphinx figures within the structure of the building, during the restoration process up to six complete figures were reconstructed from the many fragments.

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.
