Sika gives Guildford Car Park an Efficient Makeover
Sika has provided a range of proven concrete repair, corrosion management and car park deck systems during a major refurbishment of a 917 space multi-storey car park in Guildford, ensuring minimal disruption and allowing 80% of the spaces to remain in use during the works.
Car Park Repair Project Requirements
Forming part of Guildford Borough Council’s £2.5 million plan for the maintenance and upgrades of three local car parks, the Farnham Road car park was in need of a refurbishment following years of exposure to water, de-icing salts, airborne contaminants and the constant use of vehicles. Guildford Borough Council once again turned to Sika who offered a long term solution which would address the requirement for concrete repair, corrosion protection, and a new highly decorative car park deck system whilst also offering minimal disruption to users of the car park.
Sika Concrete Repair Solutions
Working with a main contractor on the 12 storey car park, Sika supplied 10,000m² of Sika® Ferrogard®-903+ due to the high chloride levels in the car park decks and 12,000m² of the Sikafloor®-161/-264 car park deck system. Sikafloor®-161/-264 car park deck system is a solvent free, highly durable car park deck system with outstanding abrasion resistance. The ultra fast setting Sikafloor® Pronto System was used on the ramps and hammerheads of the car park during the phased works programme, allowing works to be completed overnight ready for traffic the following day.
Especially suitable for lower temperatures, Sikafloor® Pronto can be applied in a wide range of climatic conditions. Comprising Sikafloor®-15 Pronto Resin, Sikafloor® Pronto Hardener and Sika® Quartz Sand, the system also offers excellent mechanical and chemical resistance which makes it ideal for multi-storey and underground car parks.
As well as a market leading range of products, Sika also provides a free comprehensive car park survey service. The Sika technical team will visit the site and produce a visual site report that highlights the immediate issues and can be used in conjunction with advice from a qualified structural engineer to formulate a life care plan as recommended by the Institute of Structural Engineers.
With the renovation of this busy town centre car park now complete, the specification of a range of innovative products from Sika has ensured the car park has returned to its best within the shortest time frame possible and with minimal disruption to users.
