Newman’s specialise in concrete repair investigation and specification helping councils, management companies and landlords with cost effective concrete and structural repairs.
Many concrete structures built in the 1960s and 70s such as this car park in West London are suffering from concrete failure, large sections of concrete crumble and fall from the structure resulting in a risk to the safety of the general public and vehicles.
Newman’s have once again been called upon by Oxford City Council to carry out Structural Surveys to a number of properties and structures.
This block of four garages is suffering from a large number of substantial cracks within the masonry due to movement of the concrete floor slab, the garages have been monitored for a period of 18 months and there has been no further on-going movement.
Newman’s have been asked to put together a structural repair scheme using the Twistfix Helical System, our design will include Twistfix masonry beams and crack stitches as well as repairs to the concrete floor slab.
This large block of garages is also suffering from cracked brickwork and has also slipped off its DPC (damp proof course) due to no movement joints being present, Newman’s will again design a scheme to include Twistfix crack stitches and Twistfix retro fit movement joints, where the brickwork has slipped of the DPC localised areas will be rebuilt.
Finally this block of flats requires repairs to its balconies, our design will include the Weber concrete repair system and the Vulkem balcony repair system, all of the above projects will be available on the case study section of the website soon.

Newman’s have started carrying out a detailed Concrete Survey to the tallest building in Watford Charter House.
The survey is expected to take between 7 and 10 days to complete and includes a detailed written report of all defects found and a full specification of repair, it is likely that the repairs will also be carried using Rope Access Technicians saving thousands of pounds on tube and clip scaffolding.
