The F Block building at TAFE Armidale has been abandoned for quite sometime due to underfloor dampness issue and water leakage from windows and cladding.
JNC Group performed a thorough investigation before the construction commences. It was later found out that the water leakage was caused by poor flashing around penetration from previous construction. JNC Group upgraded the flashing and install additional gutters to redirect water flow. Glass windows were retained offering cost savings to the client.
Underfloor ventilation system was proposed to be installed using mechanical fans and cross ventilation shafts to create a negative pressure to drag moisture out.
