A facelift for heritage palaces from construction chemicals
Thermax Construction Chemicals played a pivotal role in the successful restoration of two heritage monuments – City Palace of Udaipur and Vadodara’s Laxmi Vilas Palace.
Both projects were executed within a time-frame of 90 days in co-ordination with Ushta Infinity, specialists in the conservation of heritage buildings. The scope of work covered strengthening the existing structural members, increasing the passage area and waterproofing of roofs as well as domes. The Thermax team led by Praveen Khanna used a range of chemicals for seismic retrofitting, epoxy repair, corrosion resistance and elastomeric water proofing.
Says Sanjay Bhude, who heads the Construction Chemical Group, “This unique project will add to our proven expertise gained from executing over a 100 structural repairs and rehabilitation projects in many countries.”
