We reinforced 8 area of the plaster dome to prevent breakage , and structural performance with the aim of ensuring safety during earthquakes. The maintenance was based on detailed discussions on design, structure, temporary construction plans, and the connection of lighting equipment, etc. installed in the plaster dome.
For this project, we were in charge of the reinforcement of the mosaic tile plaster dome, which also serves as the top light, steel frame work, cleaning of the inside of the dome, and plaster and water-based FRP reinforcement work for the outside of the dome.
In case of an earthquake, we reinforced the outside of the dome, such as the steel frame, with plaster and water-based FRP reinforcement. In addition, the inside of the dome was cleaned, the deteriorated silicon adhesive was removed, and the mosaic tiles were restored to their original beauty by repairing with new clear joint material.
