Shear Wall Strengthening For Hill House (Phase 1) | 26/01/2016
An 11 storey office block in North London is being converted into luxury residential apartments. Heyne Tillet Steel contacted Fibrwrap UK with a request for several elements of carbon fibre strengthening. Phase 1 was the strengthening of floor slabs for service risers. Eleven large service risers needed to be cut in the labs at critical locations. Fibrwrap UK were responsible for the design supply and install of carbon fibre wrapping to replace cut reinforcement while forming the risers. In addition we were asked also to strengthen the shear walls within the building to allow the forming of new doorways. Fibrwrap UK also strengthened these walls using carbon fibre wrapping.
