Ford Dealership Facility
Project LocationDagenham, Essex
Main ContractorReadie Construction Ltd.
Project requirement was a new build construction of a Ford dealership showroom, with a valet and vehicle facilities area at the back of the site. Requirement was to seal all external and internal concrete floor slab joints, ranging from saw cut joints up to 30mm slab expansion joints.
The external sealant requirement was to seal all external concrete floor slab joints, including saw cuts, expansion joints up to 30mm wide as well all drainage joints. All joints 10mm and over were prepared by cleaning back any loose material or debris, then by filling in any larger gaps in the joint with standard LM silicone. The external sides were then primed using Sika 3N primer and once dried then the Sikaflex Pro3 SL was gunned into the joints to then self-level off with no tooling required. The finish achieved was glass flat.The internal sealant requirement was to seal all saw cut joints found in the vehicle maintenance warehouse. All areas will be subject to vehicle trafficking so the material has to be resistant to various fuels as well as mechanical abrasion.
