Skyriders completed projects

Mutual Heights

Date completed: February 2018
Contract duration: 18 months

Skyriders first became involved at Mutual Heights in 2009 when asked to do inspection reports on the condition of the exterior façade. The building was experiencing widespread water ingress through the walls. Skyriders was given the task of establishing the source of the leaks and preparing specifications for repairs. Skyriders produced various inspections and reports over the next 8 years to assist in on-going legal proceedings with the developer. These reports became crucial evidence which lead the developer to settle the claim.

Old Mutual Head Office, as it was known, was built in 1939/40 when it was the highest building in the southern hemisphere. It is constructed of Cape Granite blocks and now has significant heritage value. Thus all repairs require dedicated care and attention to detail to match the magnificence of this building.

Works included:

  • Angle grinding and replacing 38000 meters of pointing between the blocks;
  • replacement of the window flashings;
  • sealing glass to frame junctions;
  • waterproofing of balconies;
  • reconstruction and waterproofing to the window heads;
  • replacement of steel window mullions;
  • corrosion treatment and coatings
