Settlement and expansion cracking in structures are tracked and documented under ASTM standards. Information is used as the basis for engineering and repairs or replacement.
The GM called to assess the source of what was thought to be a leak in the pool shell. The pool, located at a raised recreation deck above retail spaces, had been leaking for months. Reviewing the construction drawings, construction photos and other documentation, it was determined that the cause of the leak was not the pool shell, but was caused by leaking membranes in raised planters causing water to migragte between the rec deck surface and the structural slab. Invasive inspection and dye testing data confirmed the source and aided in the determination of the repair.
