When existing buildings undergo any kind of structural alteration, they need to be stabilised in order to ensure the safe and cost-effective execution of the project. Any partial demolition or structural alteration needs to be carefully considered to ensure there is minimal risk of collapse.
There are many construction projects that demand stabilisation, such as the removal and replacement of structural elements like columns, the creation of new openings, and the reduction of loadings on other parts of the structure. Other common reasons for temporary stabilisation are reinforcement of party walls during the demolition and development of buildings next to each other, or to make additional work space available by reducing or eliminating the need for traditional temporary mechanical props.
Propping and needling offers the ideal solution for all structural alterations and provides necessary lateral restraint to unstable buildings. Buildings of a certain age are prone to decreased wall stability as a result of older construction methods, and any refurbishment will typically require temporary support.
We provide a versatile and proficient service that ensures safe refurbishment, formation of structural openings, the transfer of load during column removal, back propping and more. Our super-slim props offer a high leg load to weight ratio and can be used to support unstable buildings as all manner of structural work is carried out.
