What is the difference between a restoration engineer who specifies Cintec and one who doesn’t? This project on 5th Avenue in New York City needed a repair and an anchor for only this one piece of terracotta. The photo shows the preparation for the repair and the hole in the face of the terracotta piece that will accept the Cintec anchor. The engineer who considers Cintec a go to solution will use it on a project like the Helmsley Building where there are hundreds of substantial 2-4 foot anchor or on a project where there is only one anchor. If you do not specify or install Cintec please consider both your options and installed cost to solve this problem.
For those that use and specify Cintec they get it, for those aren’t they really DON’T GET IT. Not only is there less insult to the structure but the cost to the owner is substantially less and it is a truly sustainable solution. Think about it on your next project.
