Blockwork And Padstones
This project, conducted on new build properties in Crowthorne, required padstonning to be carried out under some of the buildings’ main steel beams given that they had been incorrectly placed and cracked the block work below.
Completion Date: 2019
Project Type: Temporary Works, Rebuild, Padstones
These new build properties in Crawthorne had incorrectly placed steel beams which cracked the block work below them.
We were called in and designed a temporary works scheme which allowed us to pick up the weight of the roof and rebuild the broken block work and put new, wider padstones to spread the load into the correct locations. In order to resolve the problem, we carried out specialist propping given that it was the best method rectify the damage without taking the roof off.
