Plaza Car Park East Kilbride

HTA’s job spec was an intial investigation (visit 1) to determine the make-up (as built) slab arrangement for the car park and the pre-stressing strand pattern to the pre-cast pre-stressed concrete planks.

On completion of the intial works it was noted that the bearing length of the pre-cast pre-stressed planks were very minimal in one location therefore an additional site visit was required (visit 2).

Furthermore it was agreed to check if the concrete floor slab elements was of composite construction.

Now additional works have been highlighted due to high chloride contamination and other badly affected areas to be investigated and determine the extent of the problem.
