Capalaba Park Shopping Centre was built in 1981 and is
located in Redland Shire, 22km south-east of the Brisbane CBD.


Duratec was engaged by Retail First to remediate expansion joints and conduct concrete repairs to the centre car park.

The scope of works included:

  • Removal of jointing material to existing expansion joints.
  • Cleaning of slab edges and top surface.
  • Saw cut to correct width where necessary.
  • Repair of damaged slab edges.
  • Build out of one side of the joint using epoxy screed to obtain correct width.
  • Installation of 130 lineal meters expansion joint system.
  • Installation of 68 lineal meters of control joints.
  • The spalling concrete of the car park exit wall was also repaired using concrete breakout and mortar repair.


  • The shopping centre remained open at all times.
  • Parking bays were blocked off to a minimum and re-opened at peak times to minimise the impact of the works.
  • The installation of the new expansion joint system has completely stopped the water ingress into the car parks below.


  • Joint Sealing
