Structural Repair To Well Known Inner West Doctor Surgery


Serving the community for over four decades, this popular GP surgery in Sydney's Inner West was in need of some structural and cosmetic surgery before it was handed over to new owners.

Cause

The driveway to the left in the picture above had been added to over the years with little consideration given for rain water drainage. In the picture above you may be able to notice the direction of the cracks under the window. This suggested that movement had been to the left side of the building. During the repair works a flash flood reaffirmed that subsidence due to rain water was the most likely cause.

Solution

Underpin foundation at multiple points and create masonry beams internally and externally. The repair was finished off by repairing the plaster work inside and repairing pointing, concrete veranda and painting front facade and inside to match existing.
