Conspar has carried out concrete cancer treatment for a residential strata complex in Victoria Park.
The works involved treating concrete cancer occurring at a carpark pillar of the apartment building premises with temporary propping involved to carry out the works.
Concrete cancer occurs when moisture is able to impact the steel reinforcing that exists within a concrete structure. This often is able to happen because of hairline cracks in the concrete.
The steel reinforcement becomes corroded, resulting in further damage of the concrete and ultimately spalling (concrete falling off).
If left untreated, concrete cancer can cause significant safety issues which includes a compromise of the structural integrity of a building.
