Brett Thomas, operations manager of Sky Waterproofing, says some of the challenges involved in the Two Oceans Aquarium project included unexpected changes in the building programme, due to unforeseen circumstances. This called for Sky Waterproofing to take control of the final preparatory works, including the grinding out of termination details, installing 40mm radius corner fillets and smoothing off concrete surfaces to a professional standard. Existing fibre cement roof sheets had to be lifted so that torch on systems could be applied on top of some of the walls. The sheets were then put back with new fixings. Thomas says, “The project also included many customised details that form part of the design and specifications of Paul Koning of KVB Associates. a.b.e. provided technical input and supervision during the large-scaled waterproofing project including the signing-off of regular quality control documents issued by KVB Associates as a contract requirement during tender phase. “Sky Waterproofing created a computerised Cloud database for the contract to provide the client with a backed up digital copy of the quality assurance documents. On-site photographs, data sheets and any other valuable information relating to the contract, were also added to the Cloud storage. This did not form part of the contract but was implemented by Sky Waterproofing as an additional service,” Thomas adds. HAVE YOUR DETAILS CHANGED?
