Conservation of heritage structures
The Centre for Infrastructure Management has extensive expertise in the characterisation of heritage materials by means of analytical laboratory techniques and in the development and evaluation of mortars and processes for the conservation and repair of heritage structures. The services we provide in this area include:
- mortar analysis for the determination of the cause of deterioration or failure of a mortar and the specification of new mortar for repair;
- building stone analysis for the identification of the type and source of stone and the sourcing of an acceptable replacement;
- Drilling Resistance Measuring System (DRMS) for evaluating the state of conservation of masonry materials, the effectiveness of consolidation treatments, and the quality of quarry materials and cast stone products.
