The 170 year old, Grade ll listed, Hook Norton Brewery in Oxfordshire, was suffering from internal and external cracking due to the failure of 15 brick arches. This was caused by the decay of internal timbers and movement of the surrounding brickwork. Helifix were specified for the project.
HeliBars were bonded into mortar beds above each opening, on both the interior and exterior walls, forming masonry beams that reinforced the brickwork, supported the wall above and spread the loads. Other cracks were stitched using single HeliBars bonded across the cracks.
These sympathetic repairs efficiently and economically restored integrity whilst retaining the original materials and aesthetics of this important listed structure.
