Banksia Beach Forensic Investigation

Project No: 6984

The BEC team were asked to provide an urgent forensic investigation into a concrete slab in Banksia Beach which was exhibiting slab edge dampness. Upon noticing the issue, the builders contacted the concrete supplier giving them five days to respond identifying the cause of the concrete issue, rectification plans for the issue at hand, and prevention measures for future sites.  At this point BE Collective was engaged to provide a third-party expert assessment and forensic investigation.

Our team undertook a site inspection, reviewed existing design elements and site conditions. Our report found that a contributing cause of the slab edge dampness was ‘salt attack’ due to the proximity to a large body of salt water. Other contributing factors included environmental and construction issues. Our report also covered suggested remediation action for this specific case, and preventative measures for the builders to take to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
