The Round House is a unique Grade II listed property in Cheadle. Our client wanted to undertake restoration work on the building to bring it up to a standard for use as a residential dwelling. There was evidence of structural movement and cracking to both the internal and external masonry walls.
A requirement of the local authority conservation officer was that a detailed structural survey of the building was carried out to identify the cause of the movement and to recommend appropriate and discreet remediation.
- Full building survey
- Identify the cause of the movement
- Recommend and specify structural repairs
- Detailed inspection of the roof, walls and floor
- Trial hole inspection of the foundations and supporting ground
- Inspection of adjacent drainage runs
- Review of site topography and surrounding features
- Written condition report on the grade II listed structure
- Recommendations for remedial works which involved work to the roof, underpinning, localised re-building and crack stitching of the masonry
