We can help to ensure you get the most effective and economical structural strengthening solution by helping with every step of the process – from analysis to design and installation.
Methods well proven to provide additional load carrying capacity for concrete elements include:
- improve flexural capacity, ductility and shear resistance by applying Sika fibre-reinforced polymers (FRP) in the form of wraps or strips
- uplift anchors
- external pre-stressing tendons
- strengthen masonry structures using Cintec proprietary dowels
- sprayed concrete walls
