Roof Waterproofing of High Rise Residence

A Remedial Contractor was previously engaged to provide a low cost encapsulation of the stencil create topping with Acrylic Sports Cost supplied by Colour Makers. The system failed to adequately perform and blisters appeared shortly after application. Principally this occurred as the Body Corporate did not understand the engineering risk of the application and did not obtain a Technical Specification for the works.

Scope of Consultancy

SWConsult formulated a repair Technical Specification encompassing one of the trial membranes selected by the Body Corporate. The Specification detailed the prescribed method that the Contractor was required to perform to fully replace the roof membrane including adjoining sunhoods and included removal of the Stencilcrete.

SWConsult compiled the Contract Documents and put the works out to Tender.  We managed the project on behalf of the Body Corporate working as Superintendent on the project ensuring the performance on the works before authorising payment to the Contractor
