Costa Mesa Furniture
Von Hemert, a high end furniture store in Costa Mesa, had spent thousands of dollars on engineers and contractors, to stop water intrusion from seeping into his showroom floor, from the higher elevation property adjacent his. Over the course of a few years, storm water and irrigation runoff had caused the footing to undermine, and water to seep through the concrete floor creating yearly cleanup messes, not to mention constant insurance claims for damaged merchandise.

Initial repairs to block water intrusion from entering at the cold joints of the CMU block constructed building, proved worthless, as the water found another way in, every time it rained.

Investigation by Foundation Technology found voids underneath much of the warehouse concrete floors. We correctly surmised that this was one of the major water sources entry points, as the building was constructed at the bottom of a natural ravine. additional water entered along the cold joint between the slab footing and the CMU concrete block constructed walls.

Subsequent investigations showed that the perimeter footing was also undermined along a drainage channel constructed to move water away from the building rear. Apparently it took more than just the water.

Foundation Technology was contracted to provide a solution to stop the water from intruding onto the interior floors, and fill the voids without necessitating removal of concrete slabs.
