Ronacrete and Cemplas team together in refurbishment of Art-Deco building Ronacrete and Cemplas team together in refurbishment of Art-Deco buildingDuring the refurbishment of the old Barkers store in Kensington High Street, the RG Group appointed Cemplas Waterproofing and Concrete Repairs Ltd to lay in excess of 3,750m2 of Ronafix Polymer modified screed to the waterproofed areas on the Lower ground floor and the mezzanine first floor. The Barkers Building is a beautiful example of Art-Deco architecture and is now occupied by the organic food emporium, Whole Foods Market.

When laying a modified SBR screed correct batching and mixing is essential. Each component must be properly measured by weight or volume and mixed to provide a mortar with the lowest possible water content but sufficient liquid to allow good compaction and a good surface finish. The mix design was carried out by a Cemplas pump operative and pumped through a Putzmeister screed pump.
