Loading Bay Concrete Repair Works

MS successfully carried our remedial works to a busy loading bay in Canary Wharf. Our construction experienced ensured that the loading bay remedial work was to the highest standard possible.

Cracked and spalling concrete can be the result of low quality concrete cover and when this is combined with constant wetting and drying it will accelerate the need for repairs. The remedial work by IMS addressed not just the concrete repairs but also considered the usage of the space and where steel reinforcements were needed.

Repair work was also the result of damage by forklifts and by lorries on the dock leveller loading bays. They were signs of lift and heave, causing cracking. De-icing using salts potentially also accelerate the need.

In this project IMS did the following:

  • Determine the cause - concrete testing and survey of the area
  • Thorough removal of damaged concrete
  • Blast cleaning of concrete surfaces in area of work
  • Repair and strengthening where required
  • Adequate curing and temperatures
  • Jointing with a strong sealant and primer
  • Minimal disruption to client and carried out safety
  • Install steel protection to area of maximum impact / stress to try and prevent further concrete repair

IMS understand the fabric damage that Loading Bays are vulnerable to and we guided our Client through the process and efficiently completed the remedial work safely and to the best possible standard.
