Abstract

A contract dealing with large-scale repairs to a concrete tower block is described. 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.

'n Kontrak word beskryf wat oor grootskaalse herstelwerk aan 'n betontoringblok handel. Hierdie werk is genoodsaak as gevolg van die uitgebreide korrosie van die wapeningstaal, en ongeveer 4 500 afsonderlike gevalle van afvalsplinters is uiteindelik geidentifiseer. Data ivm die koste, omvang, frekwensie en distribusie van herstelwerk word verskaf en metodes word oorweeg om die groot wisselings in koste wat in hierdie soort kontrak kan voorkom, te oorbrug.
