Make OR Break Factor
Due to severe space constraints, conventional systems could not be adapted, and we improvised on the spot.
THE CHALLENGE :
- The structure had a three-point attack brought about by changes in loading conditions, corrosion in steel reinforcements and de-lamination of concrete.
THE ODDS :
- The existing structure had already in a distressed condition and repairs had to be carried out under operating conditions.
OUR RESPONSE :
- The condition of the structure had assessed and a retrofit method had designed
- The damaged concrete sections were repaired with concrete patches and we then reinforced the structural members externally with fibre-wrapping system
