A three storey, end of terrace, Victorian property in north London was suffering from cracking in the ground and first floor walls and ceilings in both the main building and a two storey rear addition. With the first floor joists in the addition running parallel to the main house there was a lack of lateral restraint and the two storey section was moving away.
This had resulted in cracking to ground and first floor ceilings and, in the bathroom, at the junctions with the party wall and the rear and side elevations. In the main building there were cracks in the rear wall over internal and external openings at ground and first floor level and in the ground floor rear room gable wall. Movement was not considered to be ongoing but was to be monitored.
Helifix designed a repair programme, using a combination of its special purpose products and concealed installation techniques, that secured the masonry and restored structural integrity.
Helifix ties and anchors provided a fast, efficient and economical structural solution which secured and reinforced the brickwork, stitched cracks and provided lateral restraint
