High Chelmer Multi-Storey Car Park Refurbishment by Gunite

High Chelmer Multi-Storey Car Park Refurbishment

Gunite was awarded the £1.6M multi-storey car park refurbishment project by Chelmsford City Council after structural engineers J P Chick & Partners had carried out extensive tests on the reinforced concrete structure.

Tests revealed a significant volume of defective concrete and with the help of Sika, a specification was put forward to treat and encapsulate the concrete surfaces.

The 1,000 space multi-storey car park was repaired from the bottom up to allow the Council to reopen the car park in phases.

Our scope of car park refurbishment works included:

  • Asphalt repairs
  • Hammer testing
  • Hydro-demolition to expose concrete repairs
  • Cathodic protection in the form of anodes and MCI
  • Concrete repairs to decks, columns, beams and soffits
  • Floor planning
  • Track blasting
  • Waterproof coatings to decks and ramps
  • Radflex Joint
  • White lining
  • Anti-carbonation coatings to columns, beams and soffits
  • Mastic works
  • Structural strengthening
  • Traffic management

All materials were provided by Sika.
