Middle Walk, Woking
Structural Renovations Limited have recently completed extensive repairs to the exposed reinforced concrete elements of a 1970s residential development above retail units in the centre of Woking. The complex is currently undergoing a major refurbishment as part of the wider and ongoing transformation of the town.
The multiple working areas were accessed by various means, including fixed scaffold, lightweight aluminium mobile towers and mobile elevated work platforms.
The works involved surveying the concrete to establish the extent of defects, prior to breaking out and square cutting the hollow, cracked and spalling areas, preparing and protecting all mild steel reinforcement and reinstating with a polymer modified high build repair mortar.
All repairs were completed using products manufactured by Fosroc Limited, who we have been approved by for many years.
Immediately following the completion of our repairs, a support framework for a ‘living wall’ was fixed to the concrete prior to being filled with thousands of plants, purifying the air by converting carbon dioxide to oxygen, reducing noise and providing a more aesthetically pleasing environment.
