VolkerLaser’s concrete repair capability is well-respected; acclaimed as the best specialist contractor in the UK, we were awarded Concrete Specialist of the Year by the Construction News Awards, as well as a Structural Concrete Award on behalf of the Structural Concrete Alliance at the Concrete Society Awards.
Reinforced concrete requires regular maintenance in order to achieve its expected life. Repairs can vary from the careful repair, by-hand, of cracked and spalling areas, to the mechanical breaking out and saw-cutting or hydro-demolition of defective areas. Exposed reinforcement will then be cleaned and the concrete reinstated either by hand, shuttered and poured, or spray applied.
To prevent future deterioration, VolkerLaser recommends the application of a suitable protective surface coating and the possible introduction of a corrosion control system.
At the University of East Anglia, VolkerLaser delivered extensive structural concrete repairs. The feedback we received on the project from our client was stellar:
“VolkerLaser is by far the best business in this field that we have worked with. The quality of the workmanship was outstanding, so much so that we have begun discussing with English Heritage using this work as a benchmark of how to treat 20th century listed concrete buildings and structures. UEA Estates has worked with many of the big named Concrete Repair Contractors through the years and in our opinion, VolkerLaser is second to none.”
