University of Technology Sydney – Ultimo, NSW, Australia

The works involved demolishing the existing building and constructing a new teaching building, including a new UTS Library, Faculty of Engineering, learning commons and research labs.
The building presents as an undulating semitransparent building wrapping the base of the tower. This is achieved with a curved glass façade.
Slabtec was awarded the CFRP strengthening subcontract after assisting AECOM and Richard Crookes Constructions with the design of CFRP to support a new substation within the building from a concept stage to a buildable solution, which proved to be a very cost-effective and time-efficient detail using the Sika Carbodur carbon fibre and crack repairs systems.
This had a natural follow-on effect that allowed us to form a strong alliance with the RCC site team that gave Slabtec the opportunity to address all the defect repairs that are common with a demolition / new build construction where there is a need to marry old structures that may not comply with relevant standards all the way to the very latest in new build technologies.
Our work involved areas of Sika Carbodur S1214 laminates installed to new penetrations, PT Tendon Truncations, approximately 200 kits of Sika Injectokit TH and SikaDur 52 resins for crack repair along with about 300kg of SikaDur 31/41 concrete epoxy repair mortars for areas of spalling and deteriorating concrete.
Slabtec is proud to have been a part of this unique project that stands as a landmark in downtown Sydney’s newly redeveloped Central Broadway district.
