Novokuznetsk Office Building


Description

In the 1980s, the Novokuznetsk City Clinical Hospital began an ambitious expansion program that included the construction of several new buildings. One of these buildings was never outfitted as a hospital, and the shell stood unfinished and exposed for decades. This shell was converted into an office tower after a long repair and restoration effort.

To counter the effects of the many years of neglect, the project team began with a detailed analysis of the deterioration in the concrete matrix, in particular the below-grade basement structures. In a first step, the local Penetron team, who carried out the restoration work on-site, followed the required concrete surface preparation procedures to expose any hidden damage and micro-cracks. The surface preparation process exposed leaking cracks, damp spots, honeycombing, and structurally damaged concrete. After the major cracks and damaged areas were drilled/routed/chipped out and filled, a layer of PENETRON crystalline materials was sprayed on all concrete surfaces to ensure a durable and waterproof matrix.
