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.

- 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.
