Mainmark: With unique climates and landscapes, homes in Australia and New Zealand face diverse ground conditions that can cause subsidence, affect building foundations and result in structural issues. While most issues are due to unstable ground, extreme weather conditions including drought and floods can be common contributors to subsidence. Other factors such as leaking pipes or inferior concrete foundations can also be a cause.

When Offset Developments, a residential building company based in Christchurch, began construction on a four-unit complex in Christchurch, it encountered a significant challenge when it came to laying the foundations. The water table was only 1.2m below the surface, contributing to the very soft ground conditions. After receiving a geotechnical report, the company was advised it needed to place a raft under the slab to protect the site from possible subsidence, soil liquefaction or other issues that may arise due to the weaknesses of the ground.

Safety and productivity have always been the top drivers in just about any mining operation. Yet as facilities age and the need for return on investment grows, these two parameters often work against each other. Austmine caught up with Greg Wearing from ground engineering specialist Mainmark to discuss why innovation holds the key and must become the core business function of any mining services company.
But when is a crack something minor or a problem that needs to be tackled on a bigger scale?
