Hotel Georgia Slab Strengthening
The Hotel Georgia contains concrete floor slabs with existing openings on ten floors that had been filled with concrete. There were also new openings to be cut into the existing slabs. All of these locations required additional flexural enhancement.
A Fibrwrap® crew installed Fyfe's uni-directional Tyfo® SCH-41 fabric to supplement the required flexural enhancement as designed by Glotman Simpson Consulting Engineers. Implementing new age technology, the owner was provided an alternative to conventional construction, which resulted in vast time savings, reduced remedial costs and reduced shut down time.
