STRUCTURAL WORKS

AREAS OF WORK

  • Repair to damage caused by construction activity

  • Design of new structural elements to be constructed within building and carry out assessment of existing support conditions

RESTORATION OF EXISTING STRUCTURE7

STRUCTURAL WORKS

STRUCTURAL SYSTEM

  • Structure is an unreinforced masonry bearing wall system (both stone masonry and stone/mortar mix) supported on shallow foundations.

  • There are arched unreinforced concrete floors along the corridors, verandas

  • Timber joists and floor boards in classrooms at first floor level. Timber trusses support ceiling joists, purlins, rafters, and slates at roof level


Cover

RESTORATION OF EXISTING STRUCTURE7

STRUCTURAL WORKS

STRUCTURAL SYSTEM

Masonry Bearing Wall System

  • Lateral loads are transferred via the floor diaphragm to the walls, which in turn carry loads to the foundation.

  • Does not resist lateral loads by ductility, as does most modern buildings, highly dependent on the robustness of the system

TIMBER ELEMENTS

  • Timber Defects (decay, insect damage, splits). Extensive in wall plates, to a lesser extent in roof trusses

  • For timber elements, defects identified by visual inspection and use of Timber probe

  • Use of Non-destructive Test (NDT) Timber Probe (SIBTEC Digital Micro probe).

    • Very small diameter probe drilled into timber sections.

    • Changes of resistance gives measure of decay.

STRUCTURAL WORKS

STRUCTURAL ASSESSMENT OF TIMBER ELEMENTS

  • Based on site dimensions, the timber trusses were modelled in STAAD Pro. 2006 and checked to confirm adequacy for design loads.

  • Timber elements were modified by one of the following methods:

    • bolting additional timber sections to existing sections

    • bolting steel channels or steel plates to existing sections

    • replacement of entire sections ONLY where the loss of cross-sectional area was too extensive to allow for fixing (wall plates for example)

MASONRY & CONCRETE ELEMENTS

  • Stonework was found to be in good condition.

  • Cracks in masonry extensive due to material deterioration, settlement and poor drainage

  • Unlike traditional construction, material compatibility was a critical factor in selection of repair methods

  • vegetation growth contributed to deterioration of concrete in external walls

ENCASEMENT & UNDERPINNING

STRUCTURAL WORKS

SEISMIC STRENGTHENING

  • Seismic Assessment by CEP Ltd

  • Expert Advice (Gifford) & engineering judgment

  • The following were considerations:

    • Past performance of building under earthquakes

    • Existing structural lateral system robust with relatively light weight roof and large areas of timber floors at first floor level

    • Discontinuous walls to be tied

    • “Stitching” of sections of wall with existing cracks


Cover

RESTORATION OF EXISTING STRUCTURE7

STRUCTURAL WORKS

SEISMIC STRENGTHENING

CINTEC ANCHORS

  • Improve performance due to overall strengthening

  • Tie discontinuous walls/piers

  • Suitable for stitching sections of the structure with existing cracks

  • Strengthen corners


Cover

RESTORATION OF EXISTING STRUCTURE7

STRUCTURAL WORKS

SEISMIC STRENGTHENING

CINTEC ANCHORS

  • Steel rod surrounded by a fabric sock.

  • Hole is drilled into walls at specific locations

  • The anchor is then located in an oversized drill hole joining the materials to be anchored together.

  • Fluid grout is then injected under pressure in fabric sock at one end, until it reaches the remote end.

  • The grout fills the fabric sock. The entire assembly inflates under the pressure.

  • The grout passes through the fabric sock, both fixing and providing a mechanical bond to the parent material.

LOAD TESTING

  • Balcony supported by cantilever cast iron frame. Load tests were done to confirm the that the steel frames were adequate to support design loads

  • Load tests carried out by CARIRI

  • Tests confirmed that steel brackets and anchorage to walls were adequate

FIRST AID WORKS

STRUCTURAL WORKS

RESTORATION: SOME CRITICAL FACTORS

The condition assessment should be as comprehensive as possible, requires curiosity, knowledge of old structural systems and attention to details. Experience is indispensable.

Design data unavailable therefore engineering judgment as well as testing necessary.

A multidisciplinary approach especially as it relates to new services requiring openings in existing structures


First aid works8

FIRST AID WORKS

STRUCTURAL WORKS

RESTORATION: SOME CRITICAL FACTORS

  • Some structural problems can elude detection and become obvious during construction.

    • Unanticipated field conditions likely to result in increased cost

  • The structural engineer required to be on site to monitor execution both for compliance with designs and to confirm field conditions

CONSTRUCTION 9

LESSONS LEARNT

  • Regular maintenance is essential in sustaining our built heritage. Keep the water out.

  • Regularly inspect and termite treat our timber structures

  • Carry out first aid works as a pre-requisite to full restoration

  • Vacate building to be restored to facilitate more in depth dilapidation surveys of unexposed members.

  • Maintain a water tight envelope during construction process

  • A Methodology should be agreed and adhered to for every task undertaken at our current skills level.
