Built in 1938 and protected by Concrete Blast Walls, Bawdsey Radar Station was the world’s first operational radar station. The walls had decayed steadily since the building was vacated in 1991, leaving the top layer of reinforcement exposed to the elements.

Being a Heritage site, traditional concrete repair techniques were not allowed. Working in partnership, Remmers and Concrete Renovations Ltd devised a way to repair the walls by using Remmers restoration materials. Remmers coloured mortars were used to repair and simulate the colour of the original concrete alongside Remmers migrating corrosion inhibitor and impregnation cream as part of the 25-year maintenance plan.

The project has recently received a prestigious Award of Merit, issued by the International Concrete Repair Institute at the convention in New Orleans, Louisiana.
