We were engaged by MMCEG-Gamuda Joint Venture (MGJV) to undertake a condition audit and defects assessment on both the internal and external elements of Iris Apartments to ascertain the condition of the development. The Iris Apartments are situated in Taman Abadi Indah, Off Jalan Kelang Lama, Kuala Lumpur at the end of a box culvert which was being constructed as part of the SMART tunnel project for discharge to Sungai Kerayong.
The Iris Apartments consist 6 blocks of high-rise (12 Storeys) and low-rise apartments (3 Storeys) within 20.0 m from the construction activity. A detailed review of the severity of the problem of settlement leading to cracking was undertaken. An overall assessment of the structural risk was also undertaken. Remedial solutions were proposed.
