Structural Repairs Case Studies on External SitesMore structural repairs projects completed by TRAC Structural (mostly from the Helifix web site).
Multi-Storey Car Park - Typical of the comprehensive solutions offered by TRAC. The initial survey of the brickwork and spalling concrete was carried out by rope access, then both the concrete repair and the brickwork stabilisation were completed from a suspended cradle.
Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site - Another project demonstrating the comprehensive solutions provided by TRAC. This link features the masonry repairs to the Grade 2 listed Robinson's Mine Complex at the heart of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site.
TRAC also carried out the timber repairs to the Robinson's Mine Complex. More details later but for now just a brief mention in the Museums and Heritage web magazine.
Spalling Masonry, a Serious Safety Issue - Deterioration of the front elevation brickwork to empty three storey office block in Bristol resulted in serious safety issues as it Is by a bus stop on a busy main road outside the main railway station. Repairs were carried out by TRAC to stabilise the masonry and prevent brickwork spalling onto the pavement.
Swansea University - Using abseil techniques, TRAC surveyed the first block, then working from cradles and mast climbers fixed 13,000 asymmetric DryFix ties in each block to secure the stone cladding. One block was completed each summer break over a three year period.
