The property is the Caretakers accomodation located within the Newham Grange Leisure Farm complex, Middlesborough.
House requiring remedial repair.
Subsidence had occurred at the corner of the building as a result of a defective drain which had caused leakage to the underside of the foundation. Also, attributable to the buildings movement at this point was the use of inadequate and unconsolidated fill material.
Test marks at 100mm intervals to facilitate the timing of pile drive speeds.
The scheme of repair included 6 no 42mm Shire Stabilizer Piles to the corner of the building and the installation of 2 no Thor Helibeam systems, one at low level to distribute loads equally down to the piles and one at high level to provide additional lateral restraint. Additional works included the provision of Thor Helical Crackstitching to the chimney stacks. The work was carried out by Thor Helical Remedial Approved Contractor St. Astier Ltd.
