AWA tower Project Description:

MJ Engineering Projects were involved in the remedial building maintenance management of the historical AWA tower at York Street, Sydney. There were large sections of steel columns and beams supporting the structure, along with 12 floors highly utilised for commercial purposes. As this building is heritage listed, it was necessary to establish comprehensive discussions with the Sydney city council, as well as the heritage council, to ensure that the works would not negatively affect its historical value. It was damaged due to missing and deteriorating brickwork mortar, rusted steel window frames, spalling concrete, lack of water tightness, and other minor facade issues.


Scope of Works

The remedial maintenance superintendent contract was awarded to MJ Engineering Projects for the AWA tower building located in Sydney. A reputable contractor who specialises in remedial work was elected to carry out the full scope of work through a competitive tender process.

MJ Engineering Projects was appointed by the client to act as the Superintendent in order to ensure quality workmanship was carried out according to the technical specification. As a result, the construction has been successfully completed and the building was restored to its former glory.

Various locations around the building facade had been exhibiting widespread concrete spalling, on inspection by MJ Engineering Projects, it was identified that concrete had been carbonated to the level of reinforcement. Consequently, the quality of steel reinforcement had degraded and was prone to falling apart.

It was decided to remove the carbonated concrete and conduct patch repair during the remedial maintenance works. With the patch repair work, any future carbonation of the concrete will be prevented and there will be no further deterioration of the concrete.

This remedial building maintenance work included the following:

  1. Repointing of brickwork facade
  2. Rectification of cementitious chamfer
  3. Rectification of brickwork cracks
  4. Rectification of steel windows
  5. Application of sealant around window frames
  6. Repair of concrete spalling
