Structural Assessment of Balconies

ACTS Retirement Communities

Ambler, Pennsylvania

Seventy cast-in-place concrete balconies were incorporated into the construction of an over 180-unit community forty years ago.  When these balconies began to show their age through isolated spalling, cracking, scaling and delamination, SSM assessed each using a detailed inspection and reporting procedure.  Each balcony, regardless of its condition was treated as an individual structural assessment complete with documentation and photographs.  A repair matrix was then developed for each building for the owners use as a quick reference tool.
