Heritage stabilisation and remediation to canopy/awning external beams and connections and replacement of failing mild steel rods with 316 marine-grade stainless steel cable and nylon insulation. We saved our client significant time and money, and reduced the need for the roof to be removed, by proposing and implementing the steel cable strengthening solution, using 16mm woven steel cables within M20 couplings, in place of the originally specified steel rod solution. This allowed us to feed the flexible tensioning cables through the cavity, meaning there was no need to completely remove the roof structure. The scope also required lintel replacements above windows, which we achieved through the removal of an absolute minimum of brick courses, stabilising and supporting those above until the new lintels were installed.
