House Built On Dump


Newly built North Sydney community home shows major signs of movement whilst the rest of the community buildings remain crack free.

Cause

After a geo-technical survey was carried out, it was discovered that part of this newly built North Sydney home was sitting on the dump site from the original construction site.

Solution

Create multiple control joints and install the crack stitching system. Notice slip tie in the picture below being install to allow for controlled future movement.
