New foundation strengthening from a poor concrete mix

This new house foundation located on Salt Spring Island, BC was poured with a bad mix of concrete. The remote location led the concrete supplier to add 800 litres of excess water and too much sleeping agent.


Core samples revealed 18mpa, not 32mpa required for the foundation. The engineering firm on the project turned to Structural Reinforcement Solutions to provide an innovative carbon fiber strengthening design utilizing 24” SRS-660 Bidirectional Carbon Fiber.


Due to the remote location, removing the foundation had major cost implications and was a last resort. This CFRP installation kept the build on track and provided the structural capacities needed for the the home.
