Objective / Purpose
The objective of this Expression of Interest (EOI) is to expose the exterior foundation walls and drainage system in 3 identified areas, where they are cracked and water is seeping into the basement.
This objective is to be completed by May 10, 2019 and dependent on favorable ground conditions. On completion of the foundation and drainage system remedial work backfill the excavations, rake and clean up the area where work was performed.
The church foundation has had some modifications in the past as it was raised at one point to make a basement, the east side foundation wall tilted in and it was pulled back and another concrete wall was placed beside it to help the issue, and the whole drainage system was replaced and cracks filled in and weatherproofing was put on all the foundation walls. Currently there is water seeping into the basement with three known areas that require attention. (pictures are available upon request)
