Cockburn Shopping Centre Upper Carpark
Detec Australia was engaged by Built and WA Project Waterproofing to carry out leak detection scanning and monitoring of the Cockburn Car Park refurbishment.
The 16000m2 carpark being relatively new has had issues since completion, tenants below understandably upset when water constantly dripped into their shops, so the owners have decided to remove the topping slab and membrane, grind and prepare the area, then install a new membrane system consisting of a 2 layer bitumen torch-on the system supplied by Parchem. This included returning onto upstands and detailing overall movement joints and wastes.
When each section was installed Detec Australian would then scan the area, mark any breaches, retest repairs before the concreters would move in installing a double layer slip sheet, before the mesh and then new concrete toping slab.
