Abstract:A cast in place reinforced concrete building built in 1913 was repaired in 1975 using polymer impregnation, epoxy crack injection and epoxy grouting. The project is an example of using polymer impregnation to restore severely deteriorated, under-strength concrete. Original plans were to extend the useful life of the building by 15 years. This paper briefly reports that the building has been in service for 28 years since the restoration and is being replaced this year because it is no longer large enough. The building remains serviceable and there has been discussions of historic preservation after the new facility is completed.
