New TEC® Moisture Mitigation System Saves Labor at The Regenstrief Institute
The Regenstrief Institute, an internationally respected research institution, opted for cutting-edge flooring solutions at their Indianapolis, IN, headquarters. Innovative TEC® surface prep products and mortars were used throughout the four-story, 80,000-square-foot building, which will host 165 staff members and a large number of allied scientists working on local, national and global research.
Not long after construction began in October 2014, challenges started to arise within the floors of the building. Starnet contractor, Certified Floorcovering Services, Inc., discovered that more than 3,000 square feet of the concrete slab in the foyer and bathroom had a high relative humidity (RH) of 96. Moisture mitigation was the only way to solve the problem on the burnished, contaminated concrete, and TEC® moisture mitigation systems were the solution.
