Extension of lifetime of buildings and structures
Refurbishment is an important process by which the lifetime of a structure can be prolonged, being most of the times a more sustainable solution than demolition and reconstruction. Choosing the appropriate refurbishment strategy can significantly improve the overall economic and environmental performances.
Sika offers refurbishment solutions to extend the lifetime of existing buildings and infrastructures by reducing the refurbishment frequency and material flows. In doing so, Sika Solutions contribute to sustainability and environmental impacts and cost savings.
In a time where resource scarcity and life cycle costs have become a driving factor for decision making in the construction industry, Sika Solutions aim to excel in the main sustainability drivers in refurbishment:
- Economic costs
- Environmental impacts (carbon footprint, energy inputs, VOC emissions)
