Large Steel Factory

Project Details


The project presents a case study of a large factory complex in Somerton, used for fabricating steel pipes, where several large vats were causing water leaks and high temperatures, leading to minor explosions. Findlay-Evans Waterproofing was called to solve the problem, and the images show details on their approach and solution.

Location & problem:
Large factory complex in Somerton VIC 3062
Several large vats causing water leaks and high temperatures.
Minor explosions due to the leaks.

Solution & Approach:
Conducted a remediation survey.
Found the roof was leaking throughout.
Decided to spot fix various areas and overcoat the entire section.

Fixing method:
Cleaned with power washing and detailed by hand.
Applied polyethylene fabric and liquid rubber as a base.
Added an etch coat primer and a thermal top coat.

Results:
Thermal top coat dropped temperature inside the building.
Solution appreciated by workers during the hot summer.
