High Rise Building Concrete Repair Brisbane

How Our Rope Access Team Helped a Brisbane High Rise Avoid Potential Disaster

The advantages of having qualified tradespeople on ropes was really highlighted on a Brisbane high rise this week when our building maintenance team discovered a dangerous structural cracking issue with the potential to cause serious harm to the public nine floors below.

During a routine building clean, our high rise building maintenance team identified a vertical crack 90mm in from the end of the building parapet.  Upon close inspection, the crack had started to dislodge the last section of wall with the potential to fall off.

Working With an Engineer to Formulate a Solution

In order to eliminate the risk of the section dislodging completely, the team consulted with specialist engineer who specified a temporary solution.  We would pin the loose section of concrete in place using 16mm threaded steel bar, epoxy glue, washer and a locking nut.

Once the engineer came up with a plan, our rope access technicians were able to set up access to the area and safely carrying out the installation in less than a day, without the need for costly scaffolding.

By catching this building defect early, we were able to greatly reduce the risk to the general public below.  The make good would hold the section in place whilst the body corporate engages with the engineer further to develop and carry out a permanent repair.

If you’re like most people, you probably don’t realise how much work goes on up in the sky here, above you in Brisbane City – day after day!

For a well trained eye though, it’s actually quite busy up here in the skyline – window cleaning, painting, maintaining… and in this case, carrying out a visual facade inspection for an engineering firm to evaluate the integrity of the building’s external structure.

This job was the latest in a string of rope access inspection and maintenance jobs that have been carried out by Alltech Abseilers, and suggests that this may be a time when many stakeholders are considering carrying out essential inspections and remedial works to maintain the integrity of their properties.
