Repair and restoration of concrete is one of the fastest growing segments of the construction industry. This growth is not restricted to infrastructure, but extends to the private and industrial sectors. From tanks to pools, to chemical and automotive, to retaining walls and highway structures, the opportunities are endless. Shotcreting is often the best alternative when repair and restoration are being contemplated, and can be the ideal application method for both reinforced and non-reinforced construction.
The process is not simple by any means, and the shotcrete professional must be able to integrate new materials with in-place construction to form a composite that will stand up to exposure and use. As important as the materials are in the coordination of effort from the contractor, materials supplier, engineer and architect. When all of these pieces are in place, the project can be completed on budget and within expected performance guidelines.
