Refurbishment of Building 71 RAAF Base – Townsville
2013. Building 71 is a multi-use hall originally constructed in 1973. Notwithstanding some limited maintenance, the entire superstructure required significant renovation in order to return the entire building to functional use. Severe deterioration of concrete footings was clearly visible prior to repair works. During construction it was discovered that steel framing extended through to the sub-surface footings and corrosion of this steel was the main cause of concrete splitting. TEG consulting engineers was engaged as a sub-consultant by i4 Architecture. We initially prepared a Structural Condition Report based on detailed Site Inspections and then prepared subsequent construction documentation of alterations and repairs.
