The stone built, three bedroom, residential property dates from the 18th century and is situated on a cliff top overlooking Port Quin.
The more recently added conservatory had been built up on made-up retained ground and was suffering from subsidence on the front corner.
A cost-effective and reliable means of supporting and stabilising the conservatory was needed which would prevent further movement.
Helifix Dixie micro-piles provided the ideal solution as they require no heavy duty machinery and there was restricted access, over a landscaped garden, to a tight working area. In addition, they are effective to much greater depths than traditional mass underpinning.
The repairs were completed quickly, efficiently and economically. Any rebuilding was avoided and, once the patio area had been reinstated, there was little evidence of the structural stabilisation work that had been carried out.
