About The Project
The 18 metre tall chimney was structurally unsound. EH Group® were called in to carry out a detailed survey to establish the stability of the structure and the work required to solve the problem.
The survey revealed the chimney had vertical and lateral cracks so we had to install Helifix into the joints. All loose bricks were removed and were sympathetically restored using reclaimed materials.
The chimney was then secured using steel restraining straps that were calculated by our structural engineers for the relevant loading.
