Glen Waverley, Victoria

Project overview

The Glen Shopping Centre, located in the suburb Glen Waverley of Melbourne, in 2016-2017 went through extensive works to increase the shopping area and build two apartment blocks above the Mall.

Project requirements

The increase in loads due to the extension, required strengthening of the beams and slabs, using systems which will not be visible and will not use too much space.

Sika had to provide a solution to allow the contractors to create minimum disturbance for the customers, a quick installation and for the asset owner to be able to quickly return to service the refurbished spaces.

Sika solution

After discussing with the engineers and understanding the project requirements, Sika recommended the use of our carbon fiber strengthening systems which have a proven track record around the world in the most various and challenging projects. The engineers used our specialised calculation software to design this project.

For slab strengthening the following systems were use:

Sika CarboDur S812
Sika CarboDur S1012
Sika CarboDur S1214
Sika CarboDur S1512
Sika CarboDur M1214

For strengtheniong of beams were used:

Sika CarboDur BC12

For strengthening of columns:


The adhesives used to bond all the above systems:


After the slabs were strengthened, it was required a cementitious leveling product:
