Welcome to our blog.
The owner of an office and warehouse complex located in
Tullamarine turned to our company.
The complex building is built of concrete panels. The outer
wall of the building has a length of 200 meters and is located on the border with the
Due to the peculiarities of the relief, water flows from the neighboring area to the customer’s
Since the level of the ground outside is higher than the level of the concrete floor inside the
building, water penetrates through the wall-floor joint and floods all the interior spaces.

The problem could be solved very simply by digging up the soil from the outside and
performing an external waterproofing of the wall and foundation.
But, the owner of the neighboring site forbade access to its territory and did not give
permission to carry out work.
There was only one way to solve this problem – to perform waterproofing work from the inside.
This is not always easy, given that the waterproofing material will experience the negative
pressure of water from the outside. And in this particular case, the situation was further
complicated due to the soil in this area being quite reactive (moving). Because of this, the
concrete structure must retain the ability to move along with the movement of the soil, expand
and narrow due to temperature changes.
The temperature expansion joints left for this purpose during the period of operation of the
building were strongly deformed and increased in size.
