Around 450 years old, this impressive four storey period chateau, with 800mm thick rubble-filled stone walls, was displaying some serious structural faults and ongoing movement.
On the north wing both the north and east walls were suffering from extensive vertical cracking, bulging and bowing. This had resulted from a lack of lateral restraint combined with prolonged water ingress, from a leaking gutter at the corner, causing settlement of the rubble fill.
Helifix engineers devised a comprehensive repair scheme which would overcome the variety of faults and restore structural stability without affecting the external appearance and with absolute minimal disturbance to internal fixtures and decorations.
All the concealed non-disruptive repairs were completed within a short time frame, on time and within budget and at a third of the cost quoted by local experts, fully restoring structural integrity while retaining the building's aesthetics, both internally and externally.
