North Office Autumn 2017

Damp Investigation for Coupland Building 3

H+R North Office were delighted to undertake a detailed damp and timber decay investigation of Storeton Hall in the Wirral to support the planning application by P J Livesey Group.  The 14th century medieval hall is a designated Grade II* Scheduled Monument but incredibly currently serves as stabling!  The hall is set to be transformed into two unique homes and in so doing be removed from the ‘Heritage at Risk’ register http://www.pjlivesey-group.co.uk/storeton-hall/

Following a preliminary Rothound survey in 2016, H+R returned to the Coupland Building 3 at The University of Manchester to undertake a series of detailed investigations.  Originally the home of the School of Medicine, the building which has largely stood empty for a number of years is to become the new home for the School of Law following full refurbishment.  During the period in question, we have also undertaken further damp investigations at the School of Law in Edinburgh which is a long standing project

Site mobilisation has now commenced at Elisabeth Mill in Stockport where H+R are providing a range of consultancy services for DeTrafford Estates. Recent investigations have included determining the extent of corrosion to the hoop-iron bonding within the façade masonry and assessing the moisture distribution within the concealed floor timbers above the proprietary jack arch floor structures
