The streams within both the orangutan and tiger exhibits at Virginia Zoo were losing large amounts of water causing enormous monthly water bills. Because the breached areas could not be determined, a full replacement of the streambeds seemed like the best option- until they called JACKCRETE of Virginia.
Using our specialized foam and detailed plan of action, JACKCRETE of Virginia was able to find and seal all of the compromised locations along the length of the streambeds in under two full work days. The zoo did not have to replace any of their concrete, allowing them to avoid weeks worth of closed exhibits and a huge financial hit.
The Midtown Tunnel connecting Portsmouth to Norfolk in Hampton Roads, Virginia, was showing signs of water infiltration. Fearing that extensive repairs may be necessary to correct the problems, Elizabeth River Crossings reached out to JACKCRETE of Virginia to solve the issue cost-effectively and with minimum intrusion.
Due to the scope and scale of the project, the JACKCRETE team needed to be prepared. An action plan was drafted and a core drilling firm was consulted to reduce complications and allow JACKCRETE to focus on their core competency. Over the course of the multi-day project the voids present behind the walls of the tunnel entrance were filled and the breaches exposed then filled. Since completion, there have been no reported leaks in the areas worked by the JACKCRETE team.
When world-wide industrial pump fabricator, RUHRPUMPEN, expanded their Virginia facility to better serve the nuclear industry, the company had no idea their new state-of-the-art facility was sinking. But, once the building was complete and their equipment arrived from Germany for assembly, the floor began to settle under the equipment’s immense weight.
JACKCRETE designed a solution to stabilize the concrete without disturbing the installed equipment utilizing high-density polyurethane foam injection. This project was completed in one day while the facility remained open! For this project we were awarded the 2016 SPFA Industry Excellence Award, had an article written in SprayFoam.com, and had a story published in Spray Foam Magazine.
With properties across the East Coast, Shamin Hotels was having trouble maintaining the quality and safety of walkways at their hotels. For a management company representing top brands and focused on providing exceptional facilities, the presence of dangerous trip hazards was a problem that had to be eliminated as quickly as possible without any disruption to guests.
JACKCRETE restored the safety of the walkways at 31 of Shamin's 40+ hotels over the course of just 7 days. This was accomplished by scheduling projects by proximity along the 1,300 mile route to ensure multiple hotels were repaired each day. Overall, JACKCRETE lifted over 300 slabs that posed a danger to guests at properties from Glen Allen to Suffolk without disruption.
The concrete around the city of Hampton, Virginia was in need of repair and city officials wanted the various issues fixed as efficiently as possible. One of the largest challenges was the diversity of their issues which included roadway slabs, curb & gutter, bridge approaches, stormwater drop inlets, and even at the fire department where the slabs needed to support their 40,000+ pound firetrucks.
By injecting polyurethane foam around all of the damaged areas, the City of Hampton's diverse concrete issues were repaired without having to be replaced. JACKCRETE's main advantage was the speed of our work since all repairs were made to heavily-used infrastructure. Our unique process and the expertise of JACKCRETE's applicators significantly reduced the impact to residents by minimizing or completely avoiding road and bridge closures.
