In 2015, we worked on the repair of the concrete inside and outside the perimeter walls of the Bordeaux prison, approximately 30,000 square feet in area. We started with the hydro-demolition of the deteriorated concrete of the time; this method allowed an ideal surface preparation for the adhesion of the shotcrete and a significant reduction in the risk of micro-cracks.
Our ACI certified lancers and team of cement workers used a total of 770 1000kg bags on this project. One of the biggest challenges during the contract was managing high-level security throughout the facility.
The effective working range was short and we had to completely mobilize and demobilize every day. We are happy to have undertaken this beautiful project and to have been recognized by the American Shotcrete Association (ASA) in 2016.https://shotcrete.org/membership/project-awards/
