Shires Gate

Project: Shires Gate, Trowbridge
Main contractor: Midas Construction
Work involved: Replacement of Reinforcement
Date: September 2009

The Brief

Following completion of the car park decking systems, several cracks appeared running alongside the new joints.

The Solution

South West Concrete Repairs Ltd were contracted to repair these cracks. On opening up to repair it was discovered that the weld mesh reinforcement did not extend to the end of the concrete slabs, and this was the cause of the cracking.

Over the next few months numerous other areas were opened up to discover the extent of the problem. Once established several proposals were made to best effectively repair the defective areas. It was agreed that the areas be opened up and new weld mesh reinforcement laid and tied and resin anchored in position. New concrete could then be laid and compacted.
