When buildings are constructed, they are designed with stability in mind to ensure they are able to stand safely with minimal risk of shifting or collapsing. One of the most important aspects of this is the position of load bearing walls and columns, because they are responsible for supporting the weight of the building materials. Work, care and attention to detail are required to ensure they are placed in the optimal areas and are capable of providing the necessary support.
If properties ever need to be refurbished or regenerated, it is important to keep the stability of the structure in mind at all times. Occasionally, walls or columns need to be adapted or completely removed as part of the project. Before doing this, it is crucial to check and ensure that the alterations will not cause instability. If the structures being removed or changed are load bearing, suitable supports will need to be put in place to retain the stability of the building during the work. After this, an alternative solution will be needed to provide long term stability.
Temporary propping and needling systems are commonly used to support structures while they are being regenerated. These allow the safe completion of tasks such as the removal of load bearing walls and columns, cutting new openings and disconnecting floor joists from the facade.
