We were engaged after the Body Corporate became concerned that the Contractor they had engaged for balustrade replacement was not diligently carrying out the Works they had been contracted to do.
After the Contractor threatened to pull off site we were able to negotiate rectification of the defects the Contractor had caused at his cost. Unfortunately the Contractor was not able to remove the old balustrade post embedment at some locations due to being welded into the structure with the new balustrade in place.
Also the Body Corporate had previously “Built In” glazing frames to the balconies making removal of the old post embedments impossible without demolition of the Built in glazing frames.
We are able to specify Sacrificial Zinc Anodes which corrode preferentially to the old post embedments
