Rope Access Building Inspection

Rope Access Water Ingress Survey

We were tasked to carry out a full water ingress inspection to a high rise block.

The inspection consisted of removing course work to expose the cavity wall to inspect the cavity tray and wall ties......most of this was carried out 15 storeys up.

Window frames were also measured for consistency and inspected for missing gasket joints, remedial repairs were done where needed.

Our findings : Previous repairs to the coursework had not left weep holes exposed.....original coursework had porous mortar and rain water was ingressing via this route and had no exit.

all of which was carried out by our Rope Access Specialist Building Inspection Team
