DESCRIPTION

BUSS was engaged by Neesh Construction to supply and install carbon fibre strips to the soffit of the existing beams as part of the Travelator upgrade work. This work was conducted alongside the ongoing improvements at the shopping centre. The new location required strengthening to support additional loads.

BUSS was forced to work around existing structures and operational services. BUSS staff were methodical, ensuring that no other services were damaged or affected as a result of work.

The concrete beams were prepared by diamond grinding. Next was the installation of the Sika S1214 structural strengthening system which was conducted in precise locations on the soffit of the beams as per the Engineering drawings and in accordance with manufacturers specifications.
