Repair and refurbishment is often a more sustainable option than demolition in terms of architectural value, materials usage, overall cost and environmental impact. In this sector, construction solutions must be non-disruptive to surrounding building materials and quick to install to reduce downtime.
For example, our engineered helical steel fixings with their concealed, non-disruptive, installation techniques provide a sustainable remedial solution that greatly extends the life of existing structures. In the majority of cases, the existing building materials are retained and strengthened, thereby avoiding time-consuming and expensive dismantling and rebuilding, and leaving the original façade unmarked.
These systems are also used as part of seismic upgrade work and to repair damage after seismic activity, all over the world.
We also design and manufacture replacement aesthetic and fire-resistant tunnel linings to extend the service life of major transport links. These systems are quick and easily to install during night closures, to minimise disruption to commuters.
Our bolted reinforcing bar couplers are a quick, simple and effective way of replacing corroded or damaged reinforcing bars in concrete, and are used in infrastructure applications following traffic accidents.
