GUNITE REPAIRS SHACKLETON HALL
Gunite (Eastern) Ltd was contracted by the University of Birmingham to carry out the concrete testing and the subsequent concrete repairs and application of protective coatings at Shackleton Hall over three phases.
Shackleton Hall is used for student accommodation, student meeting rooms, cafe, restaurant, bar and offices and was occupied throughout the works.
The scope of the concrete repair works included jet washing; concrete testing – including hammer tests, carbonation tests and chloride tests; and concrete repairs to window cills, columns and panels.
Internal and external concrete repair to stairwells and staircases were also undertaken as well as localised brickwork repairs and re-pointing and repairs to flat roofs and to projecting bay roofs including enlarging rainwater outlets.
MCI corrosion protection was also provided and clear anti-carbonation coatings applied to concrete aggregate. Liquid coatings were applied to stairwell roofs.
All works were carried out by Gunite’s highly trained, skilled and experienced operatives and a 15-year Sika warranty provided for the concrete repairs and coatings.
