Property is a 3 storey,Victorian building circa 1877. In an ornate external style, particularly the front elevation, parapet and dormer feature. Located in the centre of busy Southport, generally a load bearing masonry structure with timber floors and a pitched slate tiled roof.


The building was showing significant cracking and bulging on the external elevations. The second floor dorma leans back into the building and had pushed brickwork at its base outwards, this resulted in massive and significant structural movement resulting in bricks and debris falling on to the pavement below. In addition to this the complete roof was condemned and had to be replaced.


This building has retail units below which had to remain open together with a very busy pavement. The challenge was to safely remove the roof, demolish the second floor dorma to below the first floor level on all elevations, install steelwork and then re-build in reclaimed brickwork. During this process extensive concrete, Helifix and sandstone repairs were carried out, a full damp proof course was also applied.


The programme of works was IO weeks and was completed to programme and budget.
