Sika helps transform multi-storey car park

Sika has provided a range of concrete repair, structural strengthening and corrosion management systems during a major refurbishment of a 950 space multi-storey car park in Leeds. The refurbishment is part of the multi-million pound upgrade of the iconic Merrion Centre in Leeds.

The project engineer required an uplift in strength of the reinforced concrete elements of the car park, in order to achieve the required structural strengthening of the car park. Sika proposed the use of a carbon fibre structural strengthening system using SikaWrap Anchors and the high performance SikaWrap 300, a reinforced carbon fibre fabric which was used for the flexural and shear strengthening of slabs within the building structure.

Sika Galvashield Sacrificial Anodes were applied to the concrete patch repairs to protect against incipient anode corrosion. Sika Ferrogard 903+ was spray applied to the remaining areas of the concrete slab to protect against further corrosion occurring to the steel reinforcement due to the presence of chlorides and carbonation
