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.

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.

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.
