Quality Control of Concrete Materials for Storm Project Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Storm provides wireless high speed internet services to remote areas in urban and rural communities. The project involves building communication towers. The foundation of the towers is made with concrete and has to be durable without any volume change over its service life. Giatec RCON™ device is utilized for the performance-based quality control of concrete materials in this project. concrete foundation
Concrete Foundation (Design and Repair) Gatineau, Quebec, Canada
The foundation of residential buildings is generally made from concrete. Concrete foundations are subjected to various environmental conditions such as sulfate attack from the soil, freeze and thaw, chloride penetration, salt crystallization, and uneven settlement. These conditions can cause cracking and sapling in hardened concrete and decrease the stability and integrity of foundation. It is critical to consider these parameters before preparing the structural design and materials mixtures for a concrete foundation. Giatec has the expertise required to design durable residential concrete foundations, perform quality control during the construction, and conduct detailed condition assessment of foundations. In addition, various rehabilitation and repair methods are offered for strengthening the deteriorated foundations.
