Commercial Building, Victoria Island


Water seepage, being a major challenge in construction works was considered for concrete water tanks, reinforced concrete roof slab and sewage treatment tank of The Avenue Tower.

Upon investigation, we observed leakages at the construction joints of the concrete water tanks being that ‘The Avenue Tower’ is situated close to bar beach and also experiences rise in water level and considerable hydrostatic pressure.

The roof slab being the topmost part of the building exposed to the atmosphere was considered for waterproofing in order to prevent any form of water seepage (during rainy season) which could lead to corrosion of reinforcements thereby resulting in the spalling of concrete.

Also, in the course of testing the sewage treatment tank, noticeable water leakages were observed at construction joints.
