This contract provided some slightly different challenges, as is often the case when dealing with refurbishment work.
There were actually two parts to this job; the first being the double goalpost frame to the bay window of the large manor house. All existing timber had to be stripped back and strength tested by the engineers to determine exactly what was needed. As there was such a large volume of weight above this area we provided larger steelwork to bear the load.
The second part for this project consisted of levelling out a large floor area that had dipped over time. Removing the old rotten oak beam that held all floor joists required us to fabricate some steelwork to replace it. The steel beams were fabricated with brackets to tie back to the other existing timberwork. Creating a solid structure for the builders to use as a foundation when reconstructing the floor.
The steelwork was delivered on a Hiab lorry and craned through the windows by our steel erectors. These beams weigh over 400kg and at a length of 5.5m it was down to the erectors skill and experience to manoeuvre the beams through the tight rooms and doorways of the building into position.
