Structural Alterations, Kensal Green in London
To temporarily prop up the external walls and insert a permanent steel frame for structural support. This work was part of a rear and side extension, which brought the house level with garden.
The steel required to support this 1st floor extension was 600mm deep. Transporting and manoeuvring such a large and heavy steel in an area where space was restricted certainly proved a challenge.
The steel was installed and temporary supports removed, so work could continue on the home extension.
