Our expertise in structural alteration schemes enable us to offer comprehensive “cut and carve” solutions for successful building reconfiguration. Cut and carve techniques form the basis of an array of structural alterations, enabling existing building stock to be reconfigured, renewed or repurposed to accommodate layouts for contemporary working and living environments. From temporary support and strengthening
works to the retention of listed elements and the creation of new structures, we’re well versed in every aspect of large-scale structural alterations. Our end-to-end project approach means we prepare all pre-construction information in a detailed pre-construction phase plan, thereby ensuring that each project is coordinated, safely delivered and expertly finished to the client’s complete satisfaction.
A key area of specialism from the company’s inception, cut and carve repurposing of buildings is one of Deconstruct’s core services. With an intimate understanding of a built structure’s configuration based on our end-to-end engagement with the entire construction process, we know what makes buildings work better and how to deliver a complete range of works within a cohesive, integrated repurposing package. Key elements of this process include:
Column and beam strengthening.
With a complete in-house facility, our temporary works capabilities dovetail seamlessly with all of the other construction services we offer. From façade retention systems, vertical propping, lateral building restraint, shoring and excavation support to falsework and formwork, combinations of our highly experienced team design, install
and, upon completion, remove tailor-made temporary works schemes. We’re also mindful of all aspects of the construction process and permanent conditions which impinge upon the solutions we deliver, as well as meeting strict timescales for the introduction of the new structure, ensuring a cohesive, joined-up approach to temporary works.
Depending on application and context, a variety of construction techniques and materials can be used, from fabricated temporary steelwork to modular or proprietary systems and designed scaffolds.
The safe delivery of every project is our primary objective.
To this end, when installed in accordance with its bespoke coordination manual, every temporary works system we design assures clients of our rigorous quality control and safety standards.
