Denber Projects has completed a renovation of the Canadian Hand Monument. Yad Kennedy is a memorial site to US President John F. Kennedy, established west of Moshav Ora and Moshav Aminadav in the Jerusalem mountains. The shape of the site is unique: it is built as a felled tree trunk, next to symbolize the assassination of the beloved American president. Denber specializes in the field of building restoration and offers a variety of effective and quality solutions.
The structure is built of 53 concrete pillars, each 7.2 meters high – each pillar represents one of the states of the United States also by the state emblem embossed on each of the pillars. An extension area around the building is about 1,500 square meters and it is used for commemorative events and friendship events between Israel and the United States. A memorial candle is lit inside the memorial site in memory of the President.
The site was designed by architect David Reznik. The idea for the establishment of a memorial forest named after the president, and at its center the memorial site was an idea of Menachem (Max) Bressler, head of the Jewish National Fund in the United States at the time of the president’s assassination.
Denber Projects CEO Baruch Kogan says that Denber Projects received the Kennedy Hand Restoration Project and returned it to its original appearance. He said before the renovation, the building was in a dilapidated condition and suffered from crumbling concrete parts, peeling and rusting of the iron, swelling and “explosions” of the concrete and Many cracks and fractures throughout the structure.
Kogan added that Denber carried out concrete restoration that included quarrying and removal of cracked and broken concrete and exposing a stable infrastructure with clean iron, exposure and treatment of the rusty corrugated epoxy primer rust converter which is a unique Denver product, filling in missing concrete parts with epoxy putty, polishing and polycarbonate painting.

The purpose of the coating is to protect the steel columns and beams that support the roof, so that they do not fall and cause the structure to collapse in the event of a fire. In the event of a fire, the paint swells up to 60 times and physically removes the fire from the steel, giving protection of between two and three hours, according to the fire brigade’s requirements.
