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

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.

Concrete Protection and Repairs, Facade Protection and Refurbishment

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
