Rehabilitation of the back facade of some offices in an exclusive isolated building with cork projected in the Romanian city of Bucharest. The first phase of the restoration of a section of the rear façade of the building owned by Banco Société Générale was carried out.
Once the small fissures in the support were repaired by means of a repair mortar, we proceeded to project the cork VIPEQ®F08, white color broken in two hands, until reaching a thickness of approximately 3 mm.
The situation of the building near the artificial lake Tei (sector 2) and the climate in the area conditioned the choice of the material to be used. The owners opted for a high-performance natural finish coating where their application was easy and fast.
Bucharest has a humid continental climate and due to its situation in the plain of Romania, the winters in the city are usually very windy, despite being mitigated by the effect of urbanism. Temperatures in winter range between 0 ° C and -20 ° C. In summer, temperatures occasionally exceed 35 ° C, and sometimes, during heat waves, they can pass 40 ° C. The annual relative humidity is also considerable at 76%.
The cork emulsions projected VIPEQ®F08 allow to protect the facade from thermal oscillations and withstand the strong winds of the area without deteriorating prematurely.
