Marina Bay is a 10-storey condominium located along the coast of Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan.
The condominium block was affected by major concrete spalling and cracks on the columns, beams and the soffit of the slab.
JTK Consult (JTK) undertook the defects investigation and the design of remedial action for implementation on site. The overall problem was caused by inadequate concrete cover and low in-situ concrete strength which is inadequate for the exposed marine environment of the site. The repair work required a removal and reinstatement of spalled concrete and the application of a coating system to protect the structural elements against further deterioration and minimizing on-going maintenance costs. The delaminated concrete and corroded rebars were removed and reinstated followed by a proprietary coating system.
