Garage Post Tension Repairs – Gold Coast

All reports were accurate and timely. Our project management team was very good. This is the first project that I’ve been involved with. Overall, I would use FSPM team again on a project of this size.

-Loren Ahlgren, Board President

FirstService Project Management was engaged by the Board of Directors for the Gold Coast Condo Association to oversee the required inspections and post-tension tendon repairs for the parking garage. FSPM coordinated with the approved engineer and oversaw invasive inspections of the 2nd floor of the garage, as well as further non-invasive inspections to the 3rd and 4th floor levels. It was determined that post tension tendon repairs were identified on the 2nd floor, as well as a host of concrete repairs.
