MJ Engineering Projects were involved at 674 Princes Highway, Sutherland providing remedial building maintenance services. The structure consisted of a concrete framed structure with brickwork infill and balconies to each of the 64 residential units. Upon inspection, MJ Engineering Projects noticed severe concrete spalling due to low concrete cover and water ingress into the car park. Additionally delaminated texture paint on the entire facade had de-bonded at several areas and there was a high risk of debris falling onto the traffic below.
Scope of Works:
MJ Engineering Projects was able to identify that the ground floor deck above the car park area was not waterproofed which lead to water penetration into the car. The inspection reports also identified that the slab edge surfaces were not prepared adequately which caused the texture coating to debond and dislodge.
A reputable contractor, specialising in carrying out remedial works, was engaged through the selective tender process to carry out the full scope of works. MJ Engineering Projects was engaged by the client, to act as the Superintendent, to ensure quality workmanship was carried out in accordance with the technical specification.
