The 5* Superior Hotel Severin*s Resort & Spa is located in the heart of the island of Sylt, surrounded by the idyllic nature of the island and offering a breathtaking view of the Sylt Wadden Sea. The complex consists of a main house as well as further apartment buildings in Keitum and Morsum. Architecturally the buildings embody the traditional Frisian architectural style. Natural and noble materials lend the rooms the charm typical for Sylt. In the luxurious buildings, suites and apartments, the spacious wellness area and all public areas were designed with Jura limestone, quartzite spa rouge and Belgian granite. 

Tasks
In the last step of the construction phase, all natural stone surfaces were cleaned with Lithofin MN Power-Clean. After complete drying of the Jura limestone and quartzite Spa rouge surfaces, they were impregnated with Lithofin MN Stain-Stop to provide effective protection against water and oil. Lithofin Stain-Stop PLUS was applied to dark surfaces such as Belgian Granite Lithofin in order to intensify the colour and at the same time provide effective protection against water, oil and grease stains.

The state Parliament building was opened in 1961 as the first genuine new parliament building to be constructed in the 20th century on the European continent. Over the course of the last three years the building was completely renovated in order to stay at the state of the art.

As part of the restoration process a total area of 2,500 square meters of honed Travertine were restored to their original appearance.

 

 

Tasks
In a first step adhesive residues had to be removed with Lithofin WAX-OFF. Subsequently care product residues were quickly and efficiently removed with the alkaline special cleaner Lithofin ASR. After mechanical cleaning with a polishing machine, Lithofin MN Power-Clean was used to remove all further construction residues. Once clean and dry, the natural stone surfaces were carefully treated with an impregnator. Exterior surfaces were treated with Lithofin MN Stain-Stop whilst the interiors were protected with Lithofin STAINSTOP >W<. Both products protect natural stone against the penetration of water, oil, grease and general dirt while at the same time facilitating maintenance.

Perth’s State Building, also known as the Old Treasury Buildings, form one of Western Australia’s most significant heritage precincts. With a history spanning 140 years, these three interconnected buildings had been vacant for almost 20 years.

Prior to construction Lithofin Australia was approached by Built Construction to specify cleaning, protection and future maintenance system for a variety of natural stone including travertine bathroom tiles and mosaics and limestone vanities located in the hotels bathrooms.

 

 

Tasks
Builders’ dirt and grout residues were softened and removed from the bathroom floors and walls with Lithofin MN Power-Clean using a nylon pad attached to a floor scrubbing machine so as not to damage the composition of the stone surface. Once clean and dry, all surfaces were carefully treated with Lithofin MN Stain-Stop protecting the tiles, mosaics, vanities and grout lines from the penetration of water, oil, grease and general dirts while facilitating maintenance. Regular cleaning is being completed with Lithofin MN Easy-Care to remove dirt residues while preserving the stone. In: COMO The Treasury Perth, WA 6000 Australia

The Kolumba Museum presents art in a unique setting: it is built on top of the ruins of an old Gothic church in the middle of downtown Cologne, Germany. The 'New Building', designed by the Swiss architect Peter Zumthor, combines the unique archaeological excavation skilfully with the modern. Sponsored by the Archbishopric of Cologne, the Museum's concept is to be a place of reflection.  

A bright spectrum of art works can be admired in the 'New Building' of the Diocesemuseum, founded in 1853. The extraordinary collection extends from the late antiquity to the modern present. The paintings and sculptures are displayed in 17 rooms with an exhibition space total of 1,750m².   

A total of 2,000 m² of the exhibition space, stairways and the administration are done in Terraplan, a type of Terrazzo. Lithofin MPP  was used to polish the surface to a high gloss. The final treatment was Lithofin MN Stain-Stop to make the surface water and oil repellent as well as low-maintenance.

Aachen Cathedral is the oldest cathedral in northern Europe. Charlemagne began the construction of the Palatine Chapel, the heart of the structure, at the end of the 8th century. It is the coronation church of more than 30 German kings, burial site of Charlemagne, major pilgrimage church and since 1930 cathedral church of the Aachen diocese. In 1978 it was the first German building to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage list. Finally, after completing two decades of restoration work on the outside of the impressive structure in 2006, restorations on the precious inside finally began.

Over 2,000 m² of marble within the Palatine Chapel, also known as the Octagon for its distinctive octagonal central area, are encrusted by a stubborn layer of dirt, soot, and grease. Additionally, the combination of humidity and carbon dioxide has weathered the marble over the years. The marble slabs have been used as flooring, wall panels, columns -which were shipped from the ancient buildings of Rome and Ravenna- as well as a marble throne.

The restoration work of some parts of the marble has begun. First it is mechanically re-polished, and then three coats of Lithofin MN Polish Cream are applied. These steps clean and protect the stone surface. At the planned completion of the work in 2011, a total of approx. 2,400 m² will have been treated in this way.
