Multi-family Residential Properties
Military compounds and bases often include multi-family residential properties such as apartment complexes, condominium, residential towers, etc. that frequently call for repair or strengthening. Some of these are due to renovation while other repair/retrofit activity may be necessary for compliance with new codes, e.g. seismic, etc. Our engineered Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) solutions offer fast, long-lasting and economical repair alternatives to owners, architect/engineers and contractors to ensure the project is completed on time, within budget and with minimum disruption of service.
Some of the repair and strengthening projects on university and college campuses that can benefit from QuakeWrap® engineered FRP solutions are:
Strengthening of floors, beams, columns and walls as a result of change of use in existing buildings
- Seismic strengthening of concrete and masonry buildings (beams, columns, walls, etc.) to enhance the resiliency of these structures
- Repair of corrosion damaged columns, floors, stairways, etc. in parking garages, etc. with PileMedic®
- Strengthening of roof beams (both concrete and glulam) for increased load capacity, e.g. when new air handling units or a rooftop garden or pool are installed
- Repair of corrosion-damaged seawalls with SPiRe® and piles that are submerged in water with PileMedic®
- Repair of underground utility tunnels that are damaged by corrosion
- Trenchless repair of pipelines with StifPipe® and InfinitPipe®
In most cases, QuakeWrap engineers can provide a complete “turnkey” design-build solution that includes sealed engineering drawings by our in-house engineers, all of the materials needed, and installation by one of our approved and certified installers. This unique turnkey design-build approach results in significant efficiency, time and cost-savings, and minimizes the potential errors and delays that can result when multiple groups are involved in one project.
QuakeWrap® also welcomes the opportunity to partner with owners, architects, engineers and contractors by providing any single aspect of the project, i.e., design, materials, or installation for a specific project.
