When the tenants first noticed that render was beginning to fall from the building, it's possible little was thought of it. However, as the process accelerated and larger chunks started falling and water started leaking into internal spaces, it became apparent to tenants and owners alike that something had to change.
Phase 1 - Issue Identification The body corporate made touch with us and requested a site inspection and a subsequent building report which identified the issues at hand and what needed to be rectified. With our report tendered, the owners realised the magnitude of work required and requested us to put out a tender for the works. With our recommendation made, a structural rectification specialist was appointed.
Phase 2 - Ongoing works The following issues were identified as immediate attention:
Significant structural distress.
Failed slab membranes.
Water ingress through membranes.
Water Ingress through poorly installed windows.
Required installation of brick ties.
New, correctly installed flashings.
Phase 3 - Completion of works Extensive facade restoration have been an ongoing concern for this building since the project kicked off.Bellmont's progressive investigations on the building have revealed severe structural deficiencies on each elevation. We have designed solutions and managed the implementation of these, ranging from the support of four levels of load bearing brickwork to the introduction of lateral restraints and stress relieve locations of the facade. Furthermore, weatherproofing deficiencies in the original construction have plagued the building and Bellmont were required to scope and design cavity flashing installations to ensure that water was excluded from the facade.
