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

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.

Floor Coatings

Description

After extensive trials and chemical exposure testing, Remmers resin systems were selected for the works. For the ceiling, Epoxy BS3000 SG provided chemical protection to the galvanised steel surface and exhibited excellent adhesive properties after the steel was prepared using an ice blasting process. The floors were a mixture of existing resin finishes, new concrete and Polypropylene drain covers. A selection of priming solutions for the different areas were utilised including, Epoxy ST100, Epoxy MT100 and Epoxy BS3000 SG. Then topped with Epoxy Flex PH laid at 2mm and sealed with PUR Top M+. Integral coved skirting was installed to all perimeters, 100mm high.

Facade Protection and Refurbishment

Description

The façade has been heavily soiled over the last 90 years. The sun of the island state in the Caribbean also severely affected the façade. The aim of the restoration was to preserve the original structure and colour scheme. The renewed absorption of water and pollutants should be prevented.

Concrete Protection and Repairs, Facade Protection and Refurbishment

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.

Floor Coatings

Description

The concrete surface was dusting and creating an unhygienic working environemnt. As part of the overall fit-out, dust sealing coating was requried to a specific Bristish Stadnard 4800 colour to meet the clients deisgn criteria for a state of the art facility. A number of spray booths were to be in use and the floor coating needed to be chemically resistant to a number of solvent based chemicals which form part of the working operation.

Concrete Protection and Repairs, Building Waterpoofing and Refurbishment

Description

The pool is permanently exposed to positive and negative water pollution. It was therefore important that an expansion zone remains in the middle of the joint seal, which allows the structure to work and provides an optimal surface. The joints should still be reliably sealed. Both the crack repair and the concrete repair were carried out in accordance with the classic procedure in accordance with the repair guidelines, in which cracks are closed by injecting epoxy or polyurethane resin using a drill packer. The concrete surfaces in particular had to be protected against chemical attack, especially against the high ammonium pollution from the connected meat industry.

Monument Preservation and cleaning, Facade Protection and Refurbishment

Description

The first phase of the project to renovate the inner courtyards involved cleaning and repairing masonry in the courtrooms used by chancellors and government officials in the House of Lords. Special cleaning methods were required for the windows of the Royal Gallery. Temporary protection and vibration monitoring were necessary in order to eliminate any risk of damage to the wall painting “The Death of Nelson” by Irish artist Daniel Maclise, as well as ensuring that the House of Lords could continue with its sittings uninterrupted. Remmers Clean Galena was the perfect solution because it can be applied and removed by hand without the need for machinery or pressurised water.

Building Waterpoofing and Refurbishment, Concrete Protection and Repairs, Facade Protection and Refurbishment

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.

Wood Preservation, Fire Protection & Wood

Description

The old station building was demolished in May 2015 because it had become too small for the volume of passengers passing through. The roof of the new building is shaped like a manta ray. The laminated beams had to provide structural stability, as well as satisfying the most exacting aesthetic demands.

Wood Coatings, Coating for Windows and Wood Elements

Description

This wooden sculpture of a human head floated above the Thames, where it was exposed to the ravages of the weather. Since it was only on display for the two-week run of the design festival, long-term wood preservation was not necessary. Moisture protection was applied, and the decision was taken to dispense with a finishing coat. In addition to the protective properties, sustainability was also vitally important.

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.

Floor Coatings

Description

Due to the nature of the business, a suitable ESD flooring was required for the protection area for testing, storage and manufacturing of sensitive electrical components. To determine the designated traffic routes around the building, a contrasting blue floor was laid to define the walkway and truck areas.

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.

Floor Coatings

Description

There were many criteria that had to to be met as the same flooring spec was to be used throughout multiple individual areas of the new building. In the gallery on the ground floor, special attention was paid to the UV stability of the floor coating due to the many floor-to-ceiling windows. The topic of "footfall noise reduction and noise level" was also important. This is why the decision was made to use a seamless PU coating, which, unlike mineral coverings, is not rock-hard, but rather elastic which offers a comfortable walking floor. Another positive effect for residents, guests and staff is the better acoustics. The floor does not reflect the sound as strongly as a tiled floor. This means that the acoustics in the rooms are pleasant.

Facade Protection and Refurbishment

Description

Some 200 years’ worth of dirt and soot had accumulated on the internal walls of Westminster Palace. The imposing natural stone walls needed to be cleaned without this causing any damage to the building. In order to ensure that all the scaffolding could be dismantled within six hours to allow important events to go ahead, the project had to be divided up into sections – but the divisions between sections needed to be completely invisible in the end result. In addition, artist Jorge Otero-Pailos planned to use a 50-metre length of the latex skin from the cleaning project in his exhibition “The Ethics of Dust”. This project required close collaboration between the renovators and the artist.

Floor Coatings

Description

The whole area of the renovation was previously covered with a magnesite screed. Although Remmers have options to top such a substrate, the decision was made to remove the Magnesite as it was showing signs of deterioration in many areas and would always have been a concern to the client. Once removed, the substrate needed a new vapour barrier and significant levelling to give an even surface for future operations. The floor was primed with 2 coats of Epoxy MT100 and levelled with Optiplan Base screed between 10- 20mm thick across the full area. This was installed in 4 consecutive days applying over 1000m2 per day. Once left to cure and dry over the weekend, a layer of Epoxy Flex PH was applied at 2mm thick and finally topped with a slip resistant coat of Epoxy BS3000 SG incoporating Aluminium Oxide.
