Saving An Old Farm House

Grangewood Southern Limited (Main Contractor) took on demolition of the existing Farmhouse on this site and then the construction of the new Farmhouse Complete with new basement on this site which may sound an easy project by today’s standards, but the client wanted a particular section of the Farmhouse saved and incorporated into the new build.

This made the project much more difficult as this then had to be propped and protected whilst the rest of the works happened all around it.

Grangewood Southern Employed Specialist Temporary Works Engineers to design the temporary restraint and temporary roof to protect this fragile section of the old farmhouse.

Providing internal propping to support the roof, external raking shores to support the walls and a temporary roof over the whole remaining section whilst still maintaining access to excavate the new basement.
