Lane Cove Project Description

At Lane Cove, MJ Engineering Projects provided remedial building maintenance services as part of a building rehabilitation project. A total of 52 residential units were located on the site which was constructed from concrete columns and beams with brickwork infill and was 3 floors high. As a result of these faults, the building had cracked driveways, insufficient waterproofing on the balconies, peeled rendering, seepage through the external facades, non-conforming glass balustrades, severe concrete spalling and numerous other faults.


Scope of Works

According to MJ Engineering Projects, inadequate waterproofing, concrete spalling and non-conforming glasswork were critical defects that had to be corrected in order to guarantee the building’s safety and optimal performance.

The full scope of work was done by an experienced contractor specialising in remedial works. This was completed through a competitive tender process to ensure that the project would be completed on time and on budget. As the Superintendent, MJ Engineering Projects was engaged by the client, to ensure that quality workmanship was carried out in accordance with the technical specification, with the objective of ensuring the successful completion of the project.

In order to rectify the issue, a program of remedial works was formulated and notified to the building owner. To begin with, a comprehensive waterproofing program was undertaken on the exterior of the building. As part of that process, new membrane systems were installed and any damaged areas were repaired.

The next step involved repairing the concrete spalling on the façade of the building. In order to achieve this, all loose concrete was removed and affected areas were treated with a patch repair material.

In the final stage, the building’s glass was assessed to ensure that it complied with safety standards. Glass that did not meet the safety standards was replaced with glass that did.

This remedial building maintenance work included the following:

  1. Repair concrete spalling on the building facade.
  2. Removal of asbestos eaves.
  3. Recoating all concrete elements.
  4. Removal and replacement of balcony balustrades.
  5. Tiling of balconies.
