Our remedial service is highly solutions focused. With a strong track record of successfully completing remedial work we are skilled in applying solutions to commonly faced building maintenance issues.
Australia’s harsh natural and man-made environments provide mechanisms that attack concrete structures continually. From our residential buildings in coastal locations, to industrial and mining infrastructure in remote areas, Hencon Group provide solutions and systems to assist asset owners to maintain and rehabilitate structures based on operational and budgetary requirements.
Services offered include:
Appropriately chosen and well applied protective coatings assist greatly in maximising the service life and maintenance return period of infrastructure assets. Deterioration of concrete, steel and timber structures can lead to expensive repairs and downtime. Protective coatings provide an effective preventative maintenance measure that reduces costs in both respects.
Polyseal are familiar with a range of protective coatings designed to suit specific requirements. Working closely with our suppliers, Polyseal is able to offer the most appropriate solution for your project.
Protective coatings are typically applied to:
As is the case with many occupied buildings, the renewal of coatings must be undertaken with minimal disruption to the customer’s everyday activities. Our experience and dedicated management team will ensure that any project carried out will be pre-planned to ensure minimal disruption. • Building Façade restoration
Refurbishment and the change of use of structures and buildings, often introduces greater applied loads, or changes in the design load path. Structural strengthening is also often required as structures deteriorate over time due to corrosion of metallic, timber or concrete elements.
Modern strengthening methods use proven materials that offer less creep and elongation than steel and are less obtrusive, being thinner and lighter, yet offering up to ten times the tensile strength capacity of steel.
Strengthening methods include:
Australia’s largely coastal building stock suffers deterioration due to the marine environment on a daily basis. Also Building practices of the distant and not so distant past have provided buildings with inherent defects and problems that require rectification. The need to upgrade or maintain the value of property investments also provides a driving force for the repair and refurbishment of buildings and infrastructure.
Hencon Group offer a wide variety of services in this area and are able to handle the most complex of repair and refurbishment projects.
These services include:
The modern day requirements imposed by the Building Code of Australia in terms of fire safety, whilst stringent, are designed to safeguard the occupants of all buildings in the event of fire. These days any approval application for construction work is likely to be reviewed by the Local Authority for compliance with fire safety criteria.
Hencon Group offer a wide ranging service to assist building owners with fire safety upgrades that includes:
When completing infrastructure projects in the face of demanding deadlines the grouting of machinery and rail mounting base plates is often overlooked as being a critical factor in ensuring minimal maintenance in the future. Cracked or dislodged grout is often visible on facilities that have been in operation for periods of less than twelve months. The correct choice and detailing of grout in these areas is essential in order to avoid costly repairs and, worse still, the attendant down time of essential plant and equipment.
Hencon group offer expertise in the design and installation of grouted support systems using the latest in:
