Listed farm buildings structurally stabilised

Client: RS Miller Group
Location: Staffordshire
Reference No: CS047

Due to age, weathering and differential settlement, listed farm buildings in the grounds of Chillington Hall, a Grade 1 listed Georgian county house, had fallen into a state of serious disrepair.

Arranged in a quadrangle and unused for many years, the buildings were to be fully reinstated. Due to their listing and historic significance, the structural repairs needed to be sympathetic, effective and fully hidden in order to retain the aesthetic appearance of the original buildings.

Helifix Solution

  • Crack stitching, using HeliBars bonded into the masonry, overcame considerable cracking and brick slippage on most elevations.
  • To stabilise bowing walls 1m long grouted CemTies were installed through the outer walls, securing them to internal cross walls. BowTies were also installed to secure the walls to internal floor and roof joists.
  • To reconnect separated brickwork, mainly on the south elevation, DryFix remedial ties provided a secure mechanical fixing.

The concealed Helifix repairs stabilised much of the main structure while retaining the original masonry. Once all other structural repairs and roof work were completed, internal renovations fully restored these fine period buildings.
