Chesterfield Gardens, London W1
Careful dismantle and rebuilding of a listed wall, which had been classed as a dangerous structure as a result of settlement. The Boundary wall formed the end of a cul-de-sac and abutted the flank wall of the Red Lion Public House. In keeping with the listed building requirements, as much of the original wall was salvaged as practical for incorporation in the rebuilding.
The works involved:
- The wall was surveyed and recorded in its original condition prior to works commencing.
- Phase 1 – Dismantling of walls with Structural Engineers in attendance from the client and the Pub.
- Phase 2 – Stabilisation of the Pub wall
- Phase 3 – Provision of piles and new concrete base and superstructure to support new construction.
- Phase 4 – Rebuilding of wall on new structure to replicate the original wall, with new gaunt bricks and Portland stone where original could not be salvaged.
- Installation of 14no. 19m concrete piles with attached concrete ground beam.
- Installation of concrete sub-frame to suit the structure of the brickwork. This was a free standing unit that would support the re-instated wall.
- Careful stabilisation of the remaining wall sections to the right hand side with the introduction of 4m Cintec anchors and anchor plate.
- On completion of the works, minor repairs to the carriageway and the repairs and redecorations to all associated metal railings was also carried out.
