Action Wall Ties was contracted to drill for, and install, Cintec cementitious grouted sock anchors to reconnect the brickwork.

This entailed drilling 75mm holes into the 225mm arched timber frame and drilling into the brickwork with a 38mm diamond drill vertically to a depth of 1200mm. We then prepared for, supplied and installed cementitious grouted sock anchors with grade 304 stainless steel M12 threaded bar washer and nut.
