MJ Engineering Projects were involved on the historical AWA tower at 47 York St, Sydney providing remedial building maintenance services. The structure consisted of large sections of steel columns and beams and 12 floors highly used for commercial purposes. The building is heritage listed and required comprehensive discussions with Sydney city council as well as the heritage council to ensure works would not effect its historical value. The building suffered from missing and dilapidated brickwork mortar, rusted steel window frames, concrete spalling, lack of water tightness and other minor facade works.
Scope of Works:
MJ Engineering Projects was able to identify that the concrete panels were carbonated to reinforcement level leading to wide spread concrete spalling at various locations around the building facade.
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.
