|Client:||Bon Accord Free Church|
Built in 1845 entirely from local granite, this church had suffered from historic settlement which had resulted in shear cracking in the major granite lintel above the main entrance and in several of the window lintels.
To retain the aesthetic appearance of the building a discrete and reliable method of securing the lintels was required that would stabilise the masonry and prevent future cracking. The alternative would be the disruptive and expensive removal and replacement of the granite lintels.
Structural repairs were devised, using Helifix remedial products and concealed installation techniques, which would reinforce the masonry above the affected lintels, ease the structural loads and restore integrity.
All the cost-effective concealed repairs were completed quickly and efficiently and, after making good, there was virtually no sign of the works that had been carried out.
