Case Study

our solution for MONASH HEALTH

Objectives

Another client, Monash Health, contacted us as they had discovered water leaking in their building.

Following our comprehensive inspection of the site, we found that the existing waterproofing membrane to the complete deck area had failed and water was penetrating between the layers of the bitumen membrane and was pooling under the membrane and tracking along the main roof slab. This was penetrating through slab cracks and into the hospital kitchen.

solutions

We were able to provide a solution solution by removing the pavers from the entire balcony and professionally installing a new 2-layer Soprema Soprasun 3mm torch on sheet membrane to complete area as well as reinstating all flashings and pavers. 

Our work also came with a comprehensive report along with a 15 year guarantee.
