Seismic Upgrades / Strengthening
Often when it comes to seismic assessments and upgrades to reach the new building code requirements, you first need to assess how the building currently rates before determining the any necessary upgrade works. Because in the past record keeping was paper based and in many cases some of the information required to assess the existing building has been miss-placed it became necessary to have other ways to establish the reinforcing used in buildings.
Steve Bowling Contracting Ltd owns specialist scanning equipment to scan and detect reinforcing, ducts and other steel components within existing concrete structures and has staff trained in using this equipment. Steve Bowling Contracting Limited have used this equipment in a number of applications, including bridges, reinforced concrete buildings, floor slabs etc. Often we will work with the structural engineer with this scanning equipment to assist with the assessment of the building so that the upgrade requirements can be determined.
SBC are experts at difficult construction applications which are often required in seismic upgrades due to the constraints of the existing building and its operations. SBC have undertaken many complex seismic upgrade projects including mini piling within a building, structural steel bracing systems and retrofit systems to unreinforced masonry structures, to bring these items up to code. SBC have worked in buildings with minimal disruption to existing business operations in the building.
