Gas Explosion Reinstatement


We were appointed to make these 4 properties safe following a gas explosion which caused significant structural damage to the superstructure of the building. Careful temporary works coordination by our trained and experience staff, working closely with out appointed structural engineer enabled the careful clearance and propping of the existing structure building to enable more detailed examination of the building condition to take place.

The project

Phased downtaking with the implementation of structurally designed bracing and propping plans enabled the roof structure to be supported and examined in further detail. Removal of the dangerously disturbed bay window mullions was required to avoid further structural collapse.

We were subsequently successful in obtaining approval for both the phase 2 structural reinstatement phase and the phase 3 interior refurbishment programmes which have involved full renovation of all 4 properties back to pre-loss condition.
