Warehouse Earthquake Damage Remediated

Summary

A large retail warehouse building constructed of precast tilt panels supported by pad footings and beam construction had experienced differential settlement of up to 60mm along approximately 250 lineal metres of the perimeter foundations due to the recent seismic events.

Approximately 800m² of the internal floor slab-on-grade also required void filling and level correction.

Objectives

Firstly to correct the settlement along the 250m perimeter section and secondly to fill all voids under the 800m² of floor and to re-level the area.

It was essential to absolutely minimise interruptions to public, retail operations.

Solution

JOG Computer-Controlled Grouting

A continuous circuit of 64 injectors were installed beneath the foundations of the building to facilitate a lift that was uniform, incremental and controlled. Continuity of foundation support was maintained throughout the correction.

JOG operations were carried out during daylight hours from outside the building to minimise any interruption to the tenants’ daily operations.

The URETEK Method

Void Filling and Slab Lifting operations were completed at night outside of the tenant’s normal trading hours.
