Our Case Histories

Kingstreet – Apartment Building Crawl Space Drainage System

This 4-storey walk up apartment building had a 4-foot high crawlspace that had a severe water problem.  The on-going water issue had been left un-remediated and severe mold growth on the wood floor system resulted.

PROJECT GOALS

  • Install an engineered drainage system in crawlspace
  • Install 2000 lineal feet of interior weeping tile
  • Install 6 sump systems
  • Install sump monitoring system with alarms

OUR APPROACH

  • All mold was remediated by a remediation professional prior to our project.
  • A consulting company along with a mechanical engineering firm designed a complicated internal weeping tile system of approximately 2000 lineal feet in length that drained into 6 sump systems.
  • Each sump system was connected to an exterior storm sewer and monitored by a control panel and alarm system.
  • We helped design the project to make it more practical to install. One of the items we came up with was access in and out of a cut-out in the perimeter foundation in two locations. Prior to that, access was to be through a crawlspace floor hatch and down a hallway. The client was happy to not have disruption and mess in the hallways.
  • We had a crew of 12 men and one full-time superintendent complete the project on budget and ahead of schedule in 3 weeks time.
  • Crawlspace was monitored for a period of 3 years as part of our contract with no re-occurring water issue.

What our customers say:

Owen and Linda De Bathe

Access to the site was a challenge. Material to be removed and replaced had to be loaded into wheelbarrows and pushed uphill and down. It was an arduous undertaking and the men on the job worked very hard. The work ethic and discipline of the crew was impressive. As well, we were very pleased with the workmanship and clean-up following completion of the project.Read more

It is terrific to see that your company’s motto of “Quality without Compromise” is more than just words… The job was completed ahead of schedule and the workers ensured that when they left, the yard looked just like it did when they arrive. Well, actually it looked better…Read more
