Heritage Listed Fire Station

PROJECT:

Ignite Studio, Ballina, NSW

PROBLEM:

The beautiful, heritage listed premises were previously used as a Fire Station for approximately 80 years. The Ballina Fire Station operations relocated to new premises in 2015 and the former Ballina Fire Station at 60 Crane Street was then acquired by Ballina Shire Council. Refurbishment works were carried out during 2018 for the adaptive re-use of the premises as a regional multi-disciplinary art space, celebrating the heritage values of the building and ongoing enjoyment of the facility for the whole community. The heritage Fire Station was experiencing water ingress. Our project was to stop the ground water ingress into the historic engine pit preventing further damage for display purposes.

SOLUTION:

We injected the perimeter of the engine pit joints with a hydrophilic Polyurethane Waterstop.

Lake Moondarra Mt Isa - Dam repair

image

Lake Moondarra

Mt Isa - Dam repair

CASE HISTORY

Project:

To reduce the losses of water from the Lake via the dam wall.

Problem:

The Lake loses between approximately 5,000,000 litres and 8,000,000 litres of water per day depending on the water level. This is monitored on a daily basis.

Water has to be pumped from another source one hundred and twenty kilometres away to repleace the losses. The cost of pumping per day is an additional factor.

The cost of the lost water is approximately AU$ 4,000.00 per day.

Horizontal Crack

Solution

Rebuild joints and cracked / spalled concrete. Insert Neoferma Neojoint – Neoferma gasket backed by Bentonite.

Preparing Joint

Inserting Neojoint

Timing:

Estimated project length 12 weeks.

Actual:

Crack joint rebuilt and joint repair & installation completed 3 weeks.

Savings:

9 weeks loss of water.

Water losses at this stage reduced by 4,000,000 litres approximately per day.

Savings in cost of water loss over A$3,000.00 per day (estimated at 80c per kl.) plus pumping costs.

Nine weeks ahead of schedule equates to a saving of over A$200,000
