Conspec has represented StoneArt for some 20 years and as a result has satisfied both Landmark and private clients throughout the Northeast for that time. Any color, any shape, any texture , any size, any quantity, glaze finish or other never a problem. Clients include the NYC SCA, Rockefeller University and the list goes on.
When Thornton Tomasetti had to consider the condition and stability of the terracotta for the Helmsley Building at 230 Park Avenue, including ornate Buffalo Heads, ConSpec’s SIP vs ROAR concept proved appropriate with the replacement of pieces that were beyond repair (Rip-Out-And-Replace) but anchor (Stabilize_In-Place) with Custom Designed Cintec anchors to dramatically reduce overall costs and project completion time.
When stucco was peeling of a Naples Florida High Rise Condominium the engineer Christopher Eseppi PE of CE Engineering & Consulting LLC searched the internet and found RureGold which he felt would be a potential solution to stabilize the underlying CMU substrate, and act as the base for the replacement stucco. Not only was he and the owner satisfied but the process will be a standard for others to be judged by.
What do you do when you run out of solutions for an unforeseen deficiency or structural problem on an ongoing restoration project? If you are not familiar with any or all of the following materials, Ambex, Cintec, HeliFix, RureGold or VoidSpan then your options are limited based on what is currently in your structural toolbox. Without knowing about these proven, everyday systems you cannot consider their use which could cut days, weeks or even months off your projects potentially extended schedule. Whether you are an engineer, an architect or a contractor you owe it to the project to be well informed and up-to-date on any and all means, methods or materials that could lessen the overall impact of an unforeseen condition and keep the project on schedule.
On one tower project where the engineer had spent almost two years developing specs for a tower stabilization when an unforeseen masonry problem arose, based on their knowledge of one of the above products, the solution was implemented within a week, which in normal circumstances might have taken months.
Cintec designs an anchor for both FRP and FRCM (RureGold) based Systems with their sock/cement technology. Works just as well with resin systems with guaranteed pullout, easy to install and fireproof. Installs with battery operated bulk cement caulking gun. Based on proven sock/cement by Cintec, used industry wide for almost 50 years. Engineered for the engineer, constructed for the contractor.
Same technology when used with threaded stainless steel rod in lieu of carbon fiber rope is ideal for CMU and Speed Tile thin wall sections providing maximum pullout and shear.
Two recents applications of RureGold Cement Based Carbon Fiber for masonry tower application, one specified (King Juan Carlos Tower, NYU) and one, unforeseen conditions (Lehigh University) during stabilization project. Second project as a result of Architect having previous knowledge and use of the Rurgold on another project. Whiting Turner saved weeks on project schedule, supporting ConSpec’s SIP vs ROAR Philosophy.
Have any masonry restoration or strengthening situation that you might need an alternative or even primary solutions for? With one email, whether you are a contractor or an engineer days, weeks, months or even years could be cut off solving the problem. I have the horror stories that have in fact lasted years. It’s only an email, what have you got to lose. firstname.lastname@example.org – Cindercrete weak, Drop Ceiling requires 1000# ultimate pullout, for example.
ENGINEERS, PLEASE CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING – I just spoke with a national anchor testing lab. They told me that to get the test anchors out of the concrete, THEY USE A TORCH! Think about it. Ever wonder why resin anchors aren’t allowed over 6 stories in the UK, something else to think about.
