A Masterful Restoration: Waterstop Solutions NSW Transforms Sydney School Courtyard
Ensuring a Safe and Durable Space for Learning
In Sydney, a significant remedial transformation has taken place at a local school, thanks to the expertise of Waterstop Solutions NSW. Our team, renowned for their skill in remedial waterproofing and concrete repair, recently completed a meticulous refurbishment of a 450 sqm school courtyard. This project not only protects the repaired concrete slab and enhances the aesthetics of the space, but also ensures its longevity and safety for the school community.
The Strategic Approach for Lasting Results
The project unfolded in several carefully planned stages, aligning with industry best practices. Our objective was clear: to deliver a reliable, long-lasting, and safe waterproofing solution.
The process involved:
- Initial Preparation: The first step was a meticulous preparation phase. This included the removal of glass panels, framing of a hallway, and wall cladding. Such thorough preparation was crucial for the proper termination of the new waterproofing and flooring system.
- Removing the Old to Make Way for the New: We identified and removed defective waterproofing, a critical step to prevent future leaks and water infiltration. This ensured a solid foundation for the new system.
- Enhancing Drainage Efficiency: Our team demolished a large planter box to access a crucial drainage point, vital for effective water management and preventing water accumulation.
- Surface Preparation: We employed planetary grinders to grind the slab, removing remnants of the previous adhesive layer. This step was essential to ensure a clean and even substrate for the new system.
- Concrete Repair and Reinforcement: The project included topping slab and rectification work on the main courtyard slab, based on structural advice and specifications from consulting engineers. This involved reinforcing areas with additional steel and setting them with chemical epoxy.
- Installing a Robust Waterproofing System: The chosen waterproofing system was applied in multiple layers, providing slip resistance, UV stability, and the necessary durability for a high-traffic area like a school courtyard.
Adherence to Australian Standards and Best Practices
Throughout this project, our team strictly adhered to Australian Standards and Best Practices for waterproofing and construction. This compliance ensured the high quality of our work, meeting necessary safety and durability requirements. By applying waterproofing engineering principles, we ensured proper surface preparation, membrane installation, and protection measures.
A Safe and Invigorating Space for Students
As the dry season in Sydney provided the perfect conditions for this project, we are proud to say that the refurbished courtyard was completed with great results, just in time for the next season. Now, the school community enjoys a durable, safe, and visually appealing courtyard, thanks to the dedicated efforts of Waterstop Solutions NSW.
