Restek were approached by Nottinghamshire Police to assess problems that they were experiencing with spalling concrete within their secure store. Previously a coal bunker it was extended to create a secure housing for the county constabulary firearms store

We attended site where we viewed various areas within the concrete bunker. The walls and ceiling of the armory were showing obvious signs that the concrete structure had begun to fail and subsequently large pieces of the structure were beginning to break away from the structure.

Once we had fully established the severity of the problem and the level of repairs required, the specification we had initially provided (based on the clients report) for spalling to the armory was certainly not suitable to reinstate the supporting walls that had suffered serious section loss as a result of the water infiltration which had contributed to the corrosion of the reinforcement and subsequent delamination of the concrete.
