Andium Homes appointed AC Mauger Ltd as main contractor to undertake the structural refurbishment of 163-170 Clos des Sables.
These refurbishment works comprised of improving the weather-proofing characteristics and thermal insulation of the buildings envelope. The external elevations were overclad using a brick slip external render system incorporating new glazing and replacing the balcony railings.
Prior to the fixing of the over cladding, several structural enhancements had to be carried out to the existing envelope, including replacing defective lintels, ensuring fixity of outer skin of grantex block to inner skin of blockwork, insulated concrete render and grantex block repairs.
These works were carried out on an elevation proforma system to confirm the number of lintel replacement, isolated repairs and the type and number of remedial wall ties required.
Other works included providing new rainscreen to entrance and stairwell.
