A number of dilapidated Victorian three storey buildings were to be demolished to make way for some newly constructed retail units. However, a full laser survey identified that the adjacent concrete frame building, constructed in the 1970's, had been built into the gable end wall of the properties to be demolished, in effect creating a solid party wall.
The survey and site investigations showed that the gable end comprised two adjacent 9" walls, now forming one wall. This double end wall of the old properties had to be retained and a cost-effective and reliable means was required to tie it together and then secure it to the adjacent property.
The Helifix ties and anchors provided a fast, efficient and economical solution and, with the wall fully secured, the main contractor was able to proceed with the demolition without any major contract delays.
