First publishedin World Highways
Riga International Airport in Latvia is seeing growth in aircraft numbers and passengers, prompting a need for investment and upgrades. The number of passengers in May 2011 showed an increase of 12% to 478,423 compared to May 2010. With hundreds of flights leaving daily some concrete needed repairing at the airport. Construction Projects Manager at Riga International Airport, Guntis Skangalis opted to use Ultrascape Pro-Prime Slurry Primer and Ultracrete FTC High Strength Concrete Repair for the completion of the project. This followed a presentation held by Delta Urban, distributors of Ultracrete Highway Maintenance and Ultrascape Streetscape materials. Once the damaged concrete had been prepared using a hydraulic hammer, Ultrascape Pro-Prime Slurry Primer was applied. Ultracrete FTC High Strength Concrete Repair was then prepared. The project was completed on time and with minimum disruption to passengers and employees.
