Preservation of historical monuments
5620 Bremgarten (AG)
The late Gothic building presumably served as a chaplaincy for the foundation of the Bullingerpfründe in 1460 and became a helper's house after its re-catholicisation in 1531. The approximately 500-year-old property, which is now a historic monument, has been renovated time and again over the course of its use, most recently 60 years ago completely and in 1990 with a gentle interior and exterior renovation.

A former manor house from the 17th century in Gampelen BE has been renovated for energy efficiency using Fixit 222 high-performance aerogel insulation plaster. Thanks to this, the historical appearance of today's old people's home could be preserved, the consumption of heating energy has been reduced and there is a pleasant indoor climate inside.
The Chesa Palmira was built in 1672, and the original floor plan has remained unchanged till today. The façade of this historic building was energy efficiently renovated by applying an 8 cm thick layer of Fixit 222 Aerogel High Performance Insulating Plaster. Fixit 208 was used for the final coat. Finally lime whitewash was applied to the façade and the identical sgraffito pattern from 1952 was carved into it.
Façade renovation with Fixit 222 Aerogel High Performance Insulating Plaster. Existing base layer removed, masonry dry cleaned and the entire façade fixed with a tile rabitz. 3 – 5 cm of Fixit 222 was applied directly onto the tile rabitz. Then Fixit 733/734 Stucco final coat was applied and two layers of Fixit 784 paint rolled on.
Chateau built in the 18th century.
Since the historic building is covered by a preservation order, it was not possible to use mineral-wool insulation on its outdoor surfaces. The owners wished to retain the original character of the building, for which reason they decided that Fixit 222 High Performance Insulating Render should be used, also because the walls were bowed and not vertical. Internal renovation was carried out with a layer thickness of 30 – 80 mm of Fixit 222 Aerogel flexible high performance insulating plaster over quarry stone walls.
The old mill, which was converted to a multiple family dwelling, was one of the first historically important buildings to undergo energy-efficient renovation using Fixit 222, a worldwide first. Subsequently Fixit 203 Finish Coat with hydraulic lime was applied to the façade of the protected building to faithfully reproduce the original plasterwork.
Conversion of a correctional facility into hotel/restaurant premises. The main planning effort was focused on the protected façade of the building, from which modern constructional elements (bay windows) extended. Using our Aerogel High Performance Thermally Insulating Plaster, the 350 m² west façade was insulated in accordance with the requirements of the preservation authorities.
