Constructed at the end of the 18th Century this building began to exhibit structural problems when the slate cladding began to fall. Temporary steel beams were installed around the building façade whilst remedial works were undertaken.

Oldstone Conservation were engaged to survey the building and propose a repair scheme to tie the building back together and provide lateral restraint. The repair scheme involved the installation of the following Helifix installations:

Helibeams installed around the exterior façade
Bowtie HDs installed into the existing floor joists
Helibars installed across internal cracks

The Helifix installations provided a sympathetic repair to the structure with minimal visual impact of the facade.
