Scope

RM Watson have been engaged by Accor Hotels to deliver a comprehensive facade and structural upgrade of the Novotel Manly Pacific Hotel.

Preliminary survey and investigation work upon commencement of the project, established that concrete spalling across the façade was the result of corroded post tension cables and anchorages rather than traditional reinforcing steel. As is common with remedial projects, RM Watson has had to revise the original concrete repair methodology following the commencement of works on site to account for this discovery. 

Due mainly to issues of insufficient cover and water run-off from balconies in the area of anchorage components, levels of deterioration of the post tension live anchorages varies from relatively mild to almost complete consumption of strands outside the anchorage.

Treatment will be determined on a case-by-case basis after careful removal of cover mortar to determine extent of corrosion and condition of grouting of the tendons. The final repairs, to be carried out with the full oversight of the project structural engineer Northrop, will vary from minor epoxy mortar repairs to remediate areas of minor corrosion. To a full epoxy-based truncation of up to 1200mm of tendon for areas of significant grout and section loss. Further carbon fibre strengthening will be added to slabs requiring truncation.

In addition to the delivery of significant structural concrete repairs, the RM Watson team will also be delivering the following remedial services across the project:  

  • Replacement of the failed original rooftop liquid membrane with a torch-on sheet membrane system.
  • Removal of original balustrades and installation of a new, replacement system.
  • Re-coating of the entire facade
