Quikrete Shotcrete MS Restores Historic Texas Pier to Pre-Hurricane Ike Glory

Originally built in 1943, the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier in Galveston, Texas, has faced many storms over the years, but none more devastating than Hurricane Ike in 2008 when the Flagship hotel sat on the site. The Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier reopened this past summer following a year of extensive repairs to pilings, beams and other structural elements using Quikrete Shotcrete MS – Fiber Reinforced.

Quikrete Shotcrete MS – Fiber Reinforced is a single component Micro Silica enhanced repair and restoration material that achieves more than 9,000 psi at 28 days and features very low rebound and permeability characteristics.

The nozzlemen, who wore life jackets on the job, pneumatically pumped more than 1,400 3,000-pound bulk bags of Quikrete Shotcrete MS – Fiber Reinforced through a hose from a silo system to make the repairs.
