Concrete Privacy Wall Structural Investigation


Estructure evaluated the condition of a nonstructural privacy wall with visible distress. In the survey, each of the 36 precast concrete screens was examined for concrete cracking and panel bowing. The collected data was analyzed and used to determine the probable causes of distress. The team developed a phased approach to maintenance and repair which will slow the deterioration of areas with moderate distress, and prevent severely cracked or spalled sections from posing a safety hazard.
