CINTEC SAVES HIGH-RISE FLATS IN SOUTHWARK
READ MORE – 24housing
Cintec International working in conjunction with Arup have saved high-rise flats in Southwark from costly demolition and re-cladding with brickwork. The 1970’s built flats have a reinforced concrete frame with a concrete nib projecting at each floor level upon which the external brickwork is seated. Over the years the concrete nib had deteriorated to a point at which there was the real likelyhood of it detaching along with the brickwork.
The selected repair option of using the Cintec Corbel anchor was chosen for its serviceability and proven durability along with economical cost. This meant that the brickwork did not require replacing on a new concrete nib or steelwork thereby saving an enormous length of time and cost.
