Repairing Structures: Knowles Saves Wastewater Plant Control Building
Using an in-house rehabilitation design, KISC was contracted to provide structural shotcrete liners inside 2 penstocks recently removed from service due to their compromised structural integrity. The KISC management team designed the reinforcing steel, shotcrete, and coating specifications needed to complete this time-sensitive project.
The shotcrete method of applying concrete offers both sustainable and economical benefits. High compressive strength, low absorption, low permeability, and resistance to weathering or chemicals make dry-mix shotcrete comparable, perhaps even superior, to conventional concrete applications.
