Column repair completed in Houston TX
These columns small holes in the base of the column where they had rusted through.
The columns have an unusual layout. Two columns are side by side and the Webs and flanges are perpendicular to each other. This layout proved to be a challenge to engineer a typical repair plan.
Due to the configuration a design was developed secure the base of the two columns to the pad, and then create a concrete box to tie it all together.
All welds were primed.
Holes were drilled into the pad; a high strength epoxy was used to secure the rebar.
Horizontal rebar is added and tired together with wire ties.
