Recently Uretek were called in to the Cadbury-Schweppes warehouse in Greystanes, NSW, to relevel and resupport concrete driveway slabs that had lost support due to the drastic changes in climate in 2010.
With the weather changing almost over-night from drought to heavy rains, havoc was caused to industrial outdoor areas at the Cadbury-Schweppes warehouse. Excessive rains turned the sub-base ground beneath the driveway slabs into mud and as trucks and forklifts traversed the area the slabs pumped the muddy slush up and out, causing the slabs to lose support.
Just before Christmas 2010 a team from Uretek were called in to the Cadbury site to inject Uretek expanding structural resins into approximately 100m² of driveway slabs.
Led by Project Manager, Stephen Williams, the team 'stitched' all the slab joints with injections, alternating between each side of the joints. This allowed the concrete driveway slabs to be relevelled and resupported, allowing vehicles to run smoothly again and removing potential pedestrian trip hazards.
The complete Uretek concrete relevelling job took only two days, and during that time loading and urgent holiday deliveries were able to continue as the concrete levelling work was carried out one section at a time and treated areas were able to take trucks again in just 30 minutes.
