The Sint Donatus tower in the citypark of Leuven, was part of medieval city walls and was built in 1150. This tower will be transformed into a touristic attraction in the park.
Triconsult, a specialised engineering consultant was called in to advise on the stability and restoration of the tower. Aslan 100 rebars were specified to consolidate the stone blocks of the walls/vault of the tower and to anchor the walls together. Horizontally ,the Aslan 100 GFRP rebars were positioned into the joints and also drilled in vertically. They were used in combination with AFRP-masonry mesh to create a ringbeam to take the horizontal forces of the vault.
Contractor DENYS NV of Gent rebuilt the vault and the walls.
