The property had been troubled with distortions and cracking over a number of years, and previous attempts to repair had failed.
Upon instruction we reviewed the historical records and the scope of previous repairs.

These measures satisfactorily restored the stability of the building.

We were instructed by the Housing Association to investigate the cause of damage to a large residential care home in North London.
The building had been partially underpinned, following previous damage a number of years ago, but the damage had progressed further.

Our investigations enabled us to determine the cause of the further movement and we designed a remedial scheme of works in order to stabilise the building.

The War Memorial in the churchyard was leaning precariously. One of our Chartered Structural Engineers carried out detailed investigations and a specialist site investigation company were engaged.
The results of the investigations confirmed our conclusions that the ground had subsided due to the extraction of moisture by nearby trees. We recommended that the foundations be strengthened by taking them to a depth below the level of influence of the trees.
