Ronacrete Supply Private Development
In Autumn 2014, Ronacrete was asked to propose screed materials for a re-waterproofing and re-paving project to the podium decks and plaza of a shopping centre, cinema and dining complex.
Ronacrete was called to a site meeting in February 2017 to discuss detailing of Ronafix floating screeds laid to falls where the required balustrade heights on the podium decks restricted the minimum screed thickness. It was agreed that a minimum screed thickness of 35mm could be applied if plant and materials were only positioned on thicker sections of screed until after granite paving had been laid, to ensure that heavy point loads did not cause deformation of the insulation boards.
Ronafix Mix F polymer modified screed was specified for the minimum 35mm thickness floating screed and Ronafix Mix A was specified for bedding of the granite paving at a minimum thickness of 10mm, ensuring that additional deck construction thickness was kept to a minimum. Detailing of all screed related matters such as screed perimeters and joints were reviewed by Ronacrete and agreed before commencement of the works. It was agreed that given the importance of the site and the need for attention to detail required, Ronacrete would regularly attend site to maintain a watching brief and provide advice about developing issues. The contractor meticulously followed the advice provided by Ronacrete and the works to the podium decks and plaza were completed satisfactorily and in a timely manner.
