Culver Arts Center Wall Strengthening

A URM and partial concrete wall section at the Culver Center of Arts at UC Riverside required additional shear strengthening due to corroded reinforcing steel and spalled concrete.

Fibrwrap Construction applied a concrete repair mortar to address the spalled concrete as well as the significant change in surface plane from the URM to concrete wall at a 6:1 ratio to smooth out the transition.

The glass-based Tyfo® SEH-51A was then installed both horizontal and vertical directions to provide the required reinforcing as determined by Saiful Bouquet Structural Engineers. Tyfo® R&R material was applied as a finish--providing a Class 1 Flame and Smoke rating.
