Project: The Berkeley Hotel
Client: Cathodic Protection of Swimming Pool
Situated in the exclusive London district of Knightsbridge, The Berkeley is one of the most prestigious Luxury 5-star Hotels in the UK, offering 2 Michelin-starred cuisine, opulent rooms & suits and a luxury spa with rooftop swimming pool. The Client contacted APA Concrete Repairs Ltd with a maintenance issue that they had with the rooftop swimming pool. The reinforced concrete structure supporting the pool showed signs of distress such as extensive cracking & areas where concrete had spalled, leaving reinforcement exposed. The defects were detracting from the poolside appearance and would become a structural problem if not dealt with appropriately.
APA repaired the concrete defects & installed a unique galvanic cathodic protection system within the supporting pool structure to prevent further corrosion of load bearing reinforcement. The programme of works were coordinated between APA and the Client to ensure minimal disturbance to the guests. All works were completed within budget & on programme to the satisfaction of the Client.
