Geotechnical and Structural Assement in Effect of Flood

The enclosed report assesses the impact of the January 2023 flood on the house structure, aiming to determine the existing risk level, assess the causal factors of the various damage outlined, and propose necessary remediation requirements based on the condition assessment. This detailed analysis has been conducted by Shahram Aftabiazar, a professional with expertise in both structural and geotechnical engineering. He holds degrees in these fields and is a distinguished member of the New Zealand Engineering Association. Upon examination, it was determined that the recent flood, exceeding the stormwater network's capacity to drain surface water from the catchpit, was the primary reason for the water overflow on the property. This overflow, in turn, led to the unexpected settling of the house foundations and subsequent slumping within some areas of the house. To ensure that the settlement, initiated after the flood, ceases at this stage and to restore the foundation to its original state, remedial actions have been proposed.

Architechtural and Structural Design

The client, an architect, sketched out his concept on a piece of paper, and we translated his ideas into detailed architectural and structural designs. The structure comprised concrete walls with a concrete slab and timber flooring. The project featured a unique roof design, and special rafters were meticulously designed to meet the specific requirements.

Raft Foundation
Deck and Boardwalk Structural Design

The project involved renovating the existing house and constructing an additional garage. The owner specifically requested the design of a boardwalk to facilitate wheelchair access from the new garage to the house.

Ground condition
Geotechnical/Structural Assessment

This is the owner's words" Three years ago we had cracking on our patio around the swimming pool. I wasn't that concerned about it at the time and monitored it. About 12-18 Months ago another crack developed across the patio but this time it has gone across the concrete swimming pool. I contacted the company who installed the pool for their advice and they visited and inspected the damage. In their opinion, the cracks in the pool and patio have been caused by ground movement. It has stabilized or seems to have, as the width of the cracks hasn't changed in the last 6 - 8 months. The insurance company has asked me to engage a suitably qualified engineer to inspect the damage and provide a report, at our cost. Is this something you would be able to do and failing that are you able to make a recommendation on who can?" We had a site investigation and gave the owner remediation details.

Architectural Drafting

An experienced architect, lacking a drafting team, utilized our services for a single-story house project. We handled architectural drafting, structural design, and the preparation and submission of documents to the council for building concent, all of which were included in our comprehensive service.

Cracks on the wall
Structural Asessment

Due to excavation work near the church, the main structure experienced settlements and cracks. The church authorities sought an assessment of the risks involved and guidance on how to address the situation. Following a thorough investigation, we provided a detailed remediation plan. The contractor implemented the plan according to our design specifications.
