Brodick House is a 22 floor large panel system high rise block in Tower Hamlets, London.
As with many tower blocks built using the large panel system, the structure required remedial work to ensure its structural integrity.
Remedial works included:
Action Wall Ties have extensive experience in defects commonly associated with LPS buildings. Working closely with main contractors and structural engineers, repair strategies have been developed that include strengthening ties, internal steel work and fixings, external stainless steel plates, brackets, and panel ties.
We have also developed tying methods for the sandwich panels. This work is always undertaken with care and attention to detail by highly skilled operatives using specially designed equipment.
Action Wall Ties used purpose manufactured dollies to transport and position the corridor reinforcing steel angles. AWT designed lifting cradles were used to lift the angles and fixed them in place.
Two coats of water based intumescent paint were also applied to provide one hour fire protection.
The remedial work was designed to be cost effective and long lasting.
