Reconstruction

NSRI — Gordons Bay

Client: NSRI  Consulting Engineer: Entech

Scope of Work
  • Reconstruct insitu, the existing column foundations for the sea rescue base to contain the bursting reinforcement.
  • The solution was to provide a PFA rich, reinforced concrete sleeve to uphold the structure and prevent further corrosion.
  • New galvanised I-beams were needed to carry the failing structure.
  • Starter bars were drilled and anchored into the existing mass concrete bases.
  • 10mm polysulphide was used between old and new concrete.
  • Concrete was shuttered and tremmied to depths of 3.5m below MSL.
