Waterproofing Field Testing Commissioning

Below Grade Leak Investigation Observation at the AXIS San Jose 12-19-2011and 12-20-2011 Observations by Michael Hathhorn Waterproofing Engineer Webcor Builders Day one 12/19/2011 consisted of investigating the condition of the garage to determine locations to be tested. The surfaces of the walls of the garage were skim coated with a concrete product that appeared to have been applied after previous injections. This top coat was mechanically removed exposing the Shot-Crete wall. Harvey with Harvey Haynes and Associates made a determination of the locations acceptability for testing. Below are pictures of the pre-testing investigations: Note -- effervescence and mineralization samples being removed from one possible test location.

Day two (12-20-2011) consisted of the final selection of the test areas, eight locations were chosen. Following the determination of test locations core samples were removed. The diameter and depth of the core samples varied based on the intent of the testing and rebar locations. Rebar was located using a hand scanner. Cores were removed using a diamond abrasive tubular bit lubricated with water. After the cores were removed the voids created were patched by Harvey Haynes and Associates.
