tuffbau completed the refurbishment of a busy road in Roth, Germany using a combination of tuffset G and tuffgrit, specified by architects Ingenieurburo Eisenberger and Streb.

The job involved replacing the entranceway to the Deutsche Post - a major distribution hub for local and international freight with lorries and vans routinely pounding its pavement causing the granite roadway to fail.

The 45 square metre gated side entrance was in desperate need of repair but closing the roadway would have caused massive disruption to the post office. That’s where the quick setting properties of tuffset G came into their own.

Working in September 2015, alongside the contractor Creativ Idee Kirsch from Büchenbach, tuffbau was able to keep the post office fully operational throughout the two-day project. The old bush-hammered granite setts were lifted out, pressure-washed and then relaid using a mix of tuffset G and tuffgrit for bedding, priming and grouting.
