masonry beams

Lintel Repairs under way in shepherds bush, West London

Newman’s are currently under taking a bed joint reinforcement scheme that we were asked to design and install in order to reinforce the masonry above the lintels at each level of this 6 storey mansion block.

The structural repair scheme was designed by our in house surveyors in order to allow the safe removal of the old load bearing timber windows and replaced with non load bearing uPVC windows.

In order to allow the safe removal of the windows 2 masonry beams will be installed resisting the tensile and compressive forces that will occur once the windows are removed.

Upon closer inspection of the masonry various areas of grout stabilisation and localised crack stitching will also be required.
