The Requirement

The College’s ongoing plans for facility enhancements represents a significant investment necessitating protection with the most effective pre-construction termite management system. The College caters for students from pre-kindergarten to Year 12. Chemical termite control systems were not an option because of the school’s desire for a clean and safe environment. So only a physical termite barrier would deliver the desired solution.

Our Approach

As is typical to WA, the College’s location is predominantly flat, with sandy soils. In general, this type of environment poses a high risk for termite attack that is common to this region.

The main challenge with the installation came from the rammed earth exterior walls. The composition of these walls can chip easily, so nailing or sealing the termite barrier into place was not practical. The solution was to install Termimesh cold joint / paver trays to the perimeter of the concrete slab edge. This protected the concealed entry points between the slab and the wall. They also engaged into the external pavement instead of against the rammed earth wall itself

True protection of high value construction assets only comes from experience, premium products and good people who know their stuff.
