In a shopping centre in Vilnius occurred floor subsidence, affecting 3,500 square metres of floor and three concrete support posts. Subsidence was caused by construction fault that had not taken into account peat layer under the centre at the depth of 4—5 m. In fear of repeating the tragedy of Maxima store in Riga, the shopping centre was immediately closed, obviously causing great financial loss for the owner. Concrete posts were supported by building contractor under the guarantee, but in order to lift the floor, the owner of the centre contacted URETEK team. It represented a major challenge, because the difference of floor heights reached up to 25 cm.
Shopping centre was closed for repair for nearly six months, but without using URETEK technology, reopening of the centre would have been delayed even longer, causing even greater loss for the owner. It took 21 days for URETEK team to complete floor works.
