We are often called in to attend to the maintenance of a building that was constructed in haste and within a tight budget. Unfortunately, this kind of practice is fairly common place and leads to problems in the structure and waterproofing early in the life cycle of the building. A poorly applied paint system also leads to the need for more frequent maintenance and redecoration which can be costly to the owners.
What did the project involve?
The Chez Danel redecoration project involved such a case when building needed maintenance early in its life cycle. Our assessment concluded that the building was in need of maintenance like crack repair, a new paint system and some waterproofing repair. In addition, the expansion joints were cut to the incorrect ratio and there was quite a bit of delaminated plaster that needed to be redone and repaired.
To address the waterproofing needed on the walkways, we had to lift the tiles, apply a torch system and re-tile the area. The painting requirement was met by using two teams working in unison – one rope team and one ground team. Our waterproofing team and two painting teams operated in a leapfrog manner to ensure that we complete the job in an efficient time frame but without skimping on the quality of the implementation.
As time management and quality control were the two most important project objectives, we are proud to say that we completed the entire project within eight weeks and that this building will gain maximum value from this redecoration project due to the high end paint system and the moderate climate in Bellville.
