Renovation fire damaged church Galmaarden Belgium

Confinement of fire-damaged columns.

 

 The Sint Pieterschurch in Galmaarden, Belgium was built back in the 13th century. In 1772 she was enlarged and completely renovated in 1995. In 2008 the church was almost completely destroyed by a fire (possibly ignited by fireworks).

Architect Karel Breda, together with Triconsult NV, did the analysis of the damage and coordinated the urgent conservation and consolidation works, executed by Building NV ( Herentals, Belgium).

The stone columns needed strengthening by injection of cementitous grouts..

Before injection , the columns were wrapped with C Sheet 240 to prevent damage to the columns due to pressure build up or possible “aquaplanning” induced by the grout.
