Thermal movement cracking to church overcome
A large extension to a church, built just 10 years ago, had developed extensive cracking following thermal and moisture related shrinkage.
Cracked and separating masonry secured
Water was wearing away the mortar bond between the outer brickwork and the inner concrete wall over the front gable, resulting in the brickwork load bearing down.

A 130 year old church was suffering from severe structural damage. Various areas of the building required sympathetic stabilisation using the concealed HeliBeam System.
Major structural repairs to Grade A listed Church
Spalling concrete from internal arches, cracked masonry, failure of masonry supporting dome and weak concrete supporting the purlins.
Parish church sympathetically stabilised
Earlier settlement resulted in vertical cracking of the masonry. Lack of lateral restraint in the gable had caused bowing, loosened stonework, kneelers and coping stones.
