Stormwater Damage

Structural Report
Project: Industrial - Western Sydney

Pouring concrete? Need to leave formwork in place over the weekend? Make sure it’s not a drainage pit blocking stormwater lines and be sure to check the weather forecast as a storm might be brewing.

There was a huge mess to be cleaned up on Monday morning at this job. Storm water that should have flowed through these storm water pipes ended up through a 1000sqm+ industrial building and lower level mezzanine.

There are issues of cleaning, lost time and productivity to deal with, as well as determining and proving who is responsible.

Structural Design & Inspections
Project: New large residence - Eastern Sydney

Residential Structural Inspection

As with most projects the challenges are often hidden and many prior to starting the job.

Some of these challenges to date:

  • Heritage compliance requirements
  • Retaining an existing structure
  • Overland flow paths and drainage requirements
  • Site foundation material limitations

These were a few of the main issues we've assisted with.

The concrete to the ground floor slab was poured earlier this year – We’ll track and share its progress with you.
