The need for Structural Strengthening or repair arises when building owner wishes to add loads to a structure beyond the allowable capacity of the existing structure or when it has inherent defects either on the design or its construction resulting in weak structure and when there is no credible data available on the existing building. BV-CKM performs the design reviews of existing structures and analyse structural investigation reports. Many projects have been undertaken oncluding Amara Hotel and Shopping Centre, Evershince Park Apartment, Windy Heights Condominium, Abdul Gafoor Mosque and more.
Buildings taller than 13 metres and older than 20 years will be required to undergo inspection every 7 years, as they “pose higher risks”. The inspections must be carried out once every seven years, with the expected lifespan of common facade materials and facade deterioration in mind. The inspection regime is aligned with the typical length of Repair and Redecoration (R&R) cycles for HDB estates and the majority of condominium developments, he said. The requirement comes on top of the Building and Construction Authority’s (BCA) existing inspections which looks at the structural design of facades such as curtain wall and external cladding under the Building Control Act, as well as the maintenance of building exteriors under the Building Maintenance and Strata Management Act.
