The Wykamol Group and Quickbase Foundations Ltd were called in help out our friends at DIY SOS again following our success with the DIY SOS Big Build, Littlehampton.
When our friends at DIY SOS gave us the call again, we did not think the job would be so complex, until we arrived on site.
We were originally tasked with installing our Quickbase Foundation System for a two storey SIP extension provided by SIP House of Northampton.
On arrival at site for a pre inspection the day before build it became apparent that the house was suffering from major structural defects.
The house had suffered quite significant subsidence to the rear elevation and gable wall in addition to lack of lateral restraint, these problems had resulted in total separation of the gable wall from the rear elevation.
Prior to starting the installation of the foundations for the extension we had to solve these problems.
We made the call to local Approved Installers of the Thor Helical Remedial Repair Systems B and M Babbage of Stoke and Structured Designs of Wrexham answered the call and provided labour to carry our repairs in double quick time. Including the installation of:
Thor Helical Remedial Window Lintels replacements
Thor Helical Remedial crack stitches
Thor Helical Remedial Lateral Restraint Ties
Thor Helical Remedial Masonry Beams
And various Thor Helical Remedial repair resins.
During day 1 of the build our contractors managed to install some 300m of repairs, stabilising the structure sufficiently to allow piling works to continue.
Once installed Wykamol Structural Approved Installers Shire Contracting installed Shire Piles to support the side and rear elevations of the property, at the same time as installing the Quickbase Foundations for the extension.
All works were completed amid the chaos of 50 other contactors on site, within two days.
Well done all.
