SIKA SUPPLIES PROVEN TOP-TO-BOTTOM SOLUTION FOR REFURBISHMENT
Sika showcased the scope of its specialisms during the refurbishment and conversion of an historic, Grade II-listed building – with its industryleading products selected for both roof and basement works.
Built in 1917, The Cunard is described as one of Liverpool’s most iconic buildings. Following its conversion into high- end office blocks, a survey revealed roof and basement issues. At the top of the building, aged asphalt patches with varying level changes and multiple cases of cracking, lumping and blistering were identified.
Meanwhile, in the basement soffits, beams and columns located in its sub-basement began to show signs of deterioration; Sika had the ideal solutions for both problems.
