Rope Access Inspection and Joint Repairs

Stable Commercial

Saint Germain Apartment Complex

Description

Saint Germain Apartment Complex is an executive residence located at 8 Prowse Street in West Perth; on the threshold of Subiaco, Leederville and Perth City. This apartment complex had been experiencing on going issues with water ingress around the window areas for some time.

In May 2019, BUSS was contacted by Southern Strata Services, on behalf of the Council of Owners, to complete an investigation into the water leaks; this included the roof and the windows of the perimeter of the exterior of the building.

BUSS mobilised to site and, via rope access, completed a thorough inspection of all penetrations to the exterior of the building’s perimeter and the roof so as to identify failed joint sealing. The inspection results included the findings of failed seals at multiple penetrations to the roof and windows, as well as split roof sheet ridges. At the clients’ request, BUSS completed all the repair works using our rope access technicians/applicators.
