Structural Concrete Repair for Historic Buildings


Civic Theatre, Auckland

The Civic Theatre in Auckland was first opened in 1929, it was reopened in 2000 after a major renovation and conservation effort. As part of the renovation and after 24 months of trial work, Concrete Solutions® injected the porous brick foundations with Centricrete FB to fill voids between the URM.

The Centricrete installation was followed by an application of Oxal HS DS to provide a negative pressure waterproofing render, and Oxal HSP was injected into the foundation to provide a damp proof course in the foundation. Thirteen years later as part of the seismic rehabilitation and retrofit efforts Centricrete MS is being used on other historic buildings within New Zealand.
