UltraCrete completes transformation of Art Nouveau capital22nd August 2018
Over the last few years, some of Riga’s most beautiful Art Nouveau streets have undergone a complete transformation and UltraCrete is delighted to have been involved at every stage.
The third and final stage has now finished and involved the installation of water and sewerage systems, air conditioning and ventilation systems as well as reinstating and levelling hundreds of manhole covers.
UltraCrete has been the number one ironwork solution in Riga for more than 10 years. Following on from their earlier success in Riga, UltraCrete’s world renowned reinstatement materials were the ideal choice to install the several hundred manholes across Brivibas Street, Merkela Street, Kalpaka Bulvaris and Krasta Iela.
Instarmac’s Latvian partner, Delta Urban, supplied the chosen contractors, ACB, Celu Parvalde and Roadex, with world renowned M60 rapid strength bedding mortar and QC10 F rapid set flowable concrete for the repairs.
UltraCrete M60 is a rapid strength bedding mortar ideal for use with all access covers as well as for the bonding of granite setts, flags and bedding kerbs. M60 boasts a superior compressive strength which means areas repaired with this rapid strength bedding mortar can be opened to traffic in just 1 hour – ideal for busy city centre streets, such as Brivibas Street, where traffic needs to keep moving.
Part of UltraCrete’s range of high specification concretes, QC10 F is a rapid setting, fibre modified concrete formulated for the backfilling around manhole frames and gullies. QC10 F has an impressive compressive strength and is opened to traffic in just 90 minutes.
Both M60 and QC10 F have been independently tested by an accredited laboratory and are proven to fully comply with the Highways Authority Product Approval Scheme (HAPAS) – an approval they have met and exceeded for over 10 years. M60 and QC10 F are proven to provide first time, permanent and durable repairs with a service life of at least 5 years.
