Rope Access Concrete Inspection by Complete Access

Rope Access Concrete Inspection by Complete Access - Rope Access Specialists

We were called by Birmingham City Council to see if we could help Wolverhampton Council on an emergency inspection job .........

The site - Wolverhampton Civic Hall

The problem - Spalling concrete

An initial site visit was made on tuesday to determine work involved and access to the work area.

Client agreed our RAMS and we have attended site on Thursday to carry out inspection and removal of loose substrate, primarily to the front elevation directly above the main entrance....major events are programmed in for Friday and Saturday....

Our inspection findings consisted of major concrete spalling where re-bar was present and had corroded ..... this could suggest the presence of flourides, chlorides or high alumina cement.... the concrete samples have been sent off to the lab for testing.

Works to the rest of the building are ongoing.

If your Organisation requires a professional access company ...
