Although only constructed in the late 1990's, this semi-detached two storey property was suffering from extensive cracking to the front and rear elevations, caused by subsidence of the gable end wall. it was built on clay soil with deep trench fill foundations but close by trees and a hedge had been allowed uncontrolled growth, causing the clay soil beneath the gable end to desiccate and shrink.
A proven and reliable means of stabilising the property was required, that would prevent further settlement, together with masonry repairs to the superstructure that would restore full structural integrity.
The problem trees and hedgerow were cut back or removed. A combination of Dixie micro-piles, to support the foundations, and the Helibeam System, to secure the damaged masonry, were specified.
The combination of Dixie micro-piles and the Helibeam system provided a cost-effective, non-disruptive alternative to traditional underpinning, rapidly restoring full structural integrity.
