Two Storey House Crack

The Problem

The two storey suburban house had cracked extensively due to extreme Melbourne earth tremors in 2012. Initial cracking had since grown worse. Consulting engineeer confirmed stitching and structural works were required. Building owner required rehab works done quickly to minimise cost.

The Solution

Asset Rehabilitation Services installed structural tie rods utilsing HeliFix masonry repair system. Scaffolding was required to be fully compliant with OH&S and meet A.R.S code of operation. Two facing walls required major crack repairs.

The Result

Repairs undertaken comply to engineers inspection. Job turnaround completed within 4 days. Project completed on budget and on time, no further works required.
