A concrete slab supporting the bottom of a swimming pool at the Champlain Towers South condominium in Florida, which collapsed last month and has so far killed at least 95 people, needed a “concrete structure” in 1996 to close 500-meter cracks. , new documents were obtained by the Miami Herald Show.

The report raises concerns that the condominium building could be dangerous for years or even decades before it collapsed early on June 24.

In the Serabot report, Morabito Consultants analyzed the building in 2018 and found that the concrete slab on which the bottom of the pool was laid was improperly laid and did not allow water to spread.

“Unsuccessful waterproofing will lead to large-scale construction of concrete structural slabs under these areas,” the report said. “If waterproofing is not replaced in the near future, the rate of deterioration of concrete will increase exponentially.”

FLORIDA STATE LEGISLATION has allocated 40 percent of CONDO Owners Association fees to the general fund since 2008: REPORT

More than 20 years ago, the concrete slab that supported the bottom of the pool and was the roof of the garage was already exhibiting significant structural problems.

“The scope of the work will be a prefabricated steel in a rking garage,” Rob Sommer, sales manager at the American Western Waterproofing Company, wrote to the Surfside Building Dertment in March 1996. Miami Herald. “These types of rails include the removal of loose concrete, the treatment of steel reinforcement with a rust-inhibiting coating, and the retraction of the mixture with mortar. Urethane foam injection into cracks in the ceiling is also included in the garage.”

Raysa Rodriguez, a former resident of the building, told the court that her lawyer had “experienced problems with the building’s obsolescence, including one time when concrete fell from the garage ceiling and fell on the back of his rked car.”

“WATER SALUTE” PROVIDED TO HELP IN ISRAELI CRUP CONSTRUCTION COLLAPSE

The lawyer of another former citizen shared a video showing what leaked in the garage in August 2018, CBS News reported.

Jean Vodnikki, president of the building’s condominium association, warned residents just over two months before the demolition that more than $ 15 million worth of buckets were needed.

“Most of this work could have been done or planned in previous years,” Vodnikki wrote in an April 9 letter, initially referring to The. Wall Street Journal. “But that’s where we are now.”

At least 95 people were killed in the crash. Authorities are searching for the remains of 14 people who were found missing, as well as any memorabilia that could be returned to the families of the missing loved ones.
