A contract dealing with large-scale repairs to a concrete tower block is descriptionbed. This arose from widespread corrosion of the reinforcement, and some 4 500 separate spalls were eventually identified. Data is provided on the cost, size, frequency and distribution of repairs and ways are considered of dealing with large fluctuations in costs that can occur in contracts of this type.
