Repairs to the concrete façade of an art deco apartment block on Brighton sea front were carried out using RonaBond HB40 and RonaBond Flowable Micro Concrete.
Astra House is an Art Deco apartment block built in 1938 and situated on Kings Road on Brightons sea front.
Decades of exposure to salt spray had corroded the reinforcement in pre-cast concrete façade panels causing spalling of concrete. Despite several repairs over the years cracks continued to appear, eventually causing pieces of concrete to fall from the building.
Ronacrete Approved Contractor Constructive Solutions carried out a survey to establish what repairs were required and they were then contracted to remove the damaged concrete and debris from old repairs and to carry out the necessary repairs to the panels.
After removal and replacement of all reinforcement, RonaBond HB40 high build repair mortar was used to reinstate the concrete to the façade panels. RonaBond Flowable Micro Concrete was used to re-form damaged sills.
