PILOT VALIDATION

MALTA PUBLIC ABATTOIR. DAMAGED WATER TOWER CLOSE TO THE SEA

Repaired with textile reinforced/highly flowable UHDC
Conservation of reinforced concrete architectural heritage

PILOT OBJECTIVES

Concrete water tower (first half of the XX century, with severe degradation, mainly on the side exposed to the sea due combined action of chloride rich air and erosion from air-borne sand grains).
A Reinforced Concrete Water Tower from the 1st half of the XX century with severe degradation is being Restored. One of the pilot projects under the Reshealience Project to validate the capacity of the UHDC and the new developments.
The work carried out by our partner University of Malta. Interesting updates from the project like Durability and Structural Health Monitoring System: Innovative materials like UHDC and TRC and techniques are being used throughout the restoration with an appreciation and respect for the original materials, structure, and form of construction. Embedded sensors were installed to monitor the structural health of this unique structure in Malta.
