Culvert repairs

Culvert Repairs & Maintenance

Maxbuild specialises in culvert remediation from relining old armaco culvert to concrete repairs and corrosion remediations.

If severe weather events threaten the integrity of culverts, Maxbuild can utilise several remediation methods to repair the damage. Note: If diversion of a stream or creek is required then a scope of works will be needed.

Before any repair however, we will make an assessment and evaluation of the structure in question. This starts with proper inspection, along with a key understanding of the features of the culvert type and materials used. If required, we will reline the culvert or repair the culvert through concrete remediation taking into account all environmental protection considerations.

  • Relining of culvert
  • Concrete remediation
  • Environmental protection
FRP

FRP Strengthening

Maxbuild are licensed applicators of Fosroc and Mapei products. All our FRP strengthening solutions are engineered, specified and installed to solve a host of structural deficiencies or demands in existing structures.

As part of Maxbuild’s FRP Strengthening solution we will perform a Seismic Assessment (ISA) to determine the structural integrity of the structure. We then use (TRM) Textile Reinforced Mortars, (FRP) Carbon Fibre Strengthening, (GFW) Glass Fibre Wraps, or if brickwork is required then Helifix Anchors as may be required.

For buildings at risk of collapse due to earthquakes or seismic activity we FRP strengthen by column confinement. Likewise, we can add diaphragm floors to strengthen the structural elements with steel.

We can also provide expert ground anchoring geo-technical solutions for difficult projects.

  • Seismic Assessment (ISA)
  • (TRM) Textile Reinforced Mortars
  • (FRP) Carbon Fibre Strengthening
