Our Process – Glebe House

During the afternoon of 28th July 2016, a gable wall of cob construction collapsed without warning, following a collision from a large tractor and trailer with rolled hay bales.

  • Assessment: We carefully assessed the condition and stability of the structure, advising, the emergency services and local authorities, before designing an urgently installed system of emergency temporary propping and weather protection as shown below
  • Establish a Client Brief: Work with the Client to establish their need and instruction and then advise them on the process to best meet their goals.
  • Stakeholder Engagement: We engaged with Planners, Local Authorities, Neighbors, Parish Council, Utilities, Specialist Built Environment Consultants.
  • Reconstruction: was commenced after sampling and testing of the existing materials to guide specification
  • Over-Roof: Providing a fully encapsulated temporary enclosure, which incorporated the temporary propping first installed at our direction.
