10 Storey Blocks Fully Refurbished in Leeds

Two blocks of flats in the Horsforth area of Leeds received a complete external refurbishment.

Our Scope of Works:

  • Concrete cleaning
  • Testing
  • Concrete repairs
  • Coating and waterproofing
  • Pull out testing
  • Installation of new balustrades

Sika Monotop repair and Sika Gard coating systems were applied to all concrete private balconies, walkways and stair cores.

Repairs were also carried out to the render elements of the building using a Sikacem 810 design mix, prior to being overcoated with EWI.

During the concrete repair process, all the existing metal railings were removed and the damaged concrete repaired ready to receive the new powder coated aluminium railings and screens which were in manufacture in Sweden

Extensive pull out testing was undertaken by Gunite with the approval of Hilti UK and Balco UK the railing suppliers.

Once the length and type of fixing was established we commenced the fitting of retaining bolts and fixing brackets for the railings.  The railing were delivered in four separate deliveries, one a month and were fitted over that 4 month period.
