Connecticut Heights Plaza Pool Deck Repairs

A condition survey was performed for the Connecticut Heights apartment complex followed by repair specifications for the plaza pool deck.  Based on initial observations, the waterproofing system on the top surface of the pool deck had failed resulting in water leaking into the slab.  The water penetration, which was high in chlorine, caused the corrosion of embedded reinforcing bars. Other deficiencies noted include the poor condition of the structural slab soffit due to the failed waterproofing, corrosion-related damage to the concrete slab and walls due to the embedded fence and rail posts, cracked mortar joints were found in the brick masonry walls, and drainage issues.

Once the topping slab and the underlying waterproofing were removed, concrete repairs were performed.  Additionally, scaling on the top surface of the concrete slab was observed at isolated locations throughout the pool deck.  These areas were treated to obtain a uniform surface.  To perform the work underneath while keeping the drive lane open, a special scaffolding/platform assembly was installed with overhead protection that was designed to support post shores installed around the repair areas.

Upon completion of the concrete repairs, the top surface of the pool deck structural slab was re-waterproofed with hot-applied waterproofing.  New concrete pavers on pedestals, surface mounted fence, and rails were installed.  Rowlock bricks on the masonry walls were replaced by precast coping stones and masonry tuckpointing of cracked mortar joints and brick replacement was performed.  Simultaneously, concrete repairs were performed on the drive lane leading up to the garage. The de-bonded old membrane was completely removed, and a full system of urethane membrane was installed.
