Straight back into the new year and we were contracted to repair a number of dock levellers for Hormann UK. Continued impact of vehicles onto the levellers had damaged the majority of the docks which were now beyond minor repairs. The new sections were cast in micro-concrete to increase strength.
Another team was sent back to Essex to carry out resin grouting to a shopping centre. We had been contacted several times before, by one of out clients and due to the success of the previous works, we were contacted by another contractor to deal with similar problems that they were experiencing.
Restek were also successful in securing a contract to repair a listed structure in Kidderminster. Last November we carried out a detailed survey of a deteriorating façade and submitted a proposal for the repairs. This hundred metre length, two storey high, Grade II listed structure had been neglected for decades and was now beginning to crumble in areas, causing small sections to fall onto the street below. Immediately upon recording our findings, we were asked to carry out urgent repairs to make-safe the structure prior to a comprehensive schedule of repairs which would need to commence in the new year.
Nottinghamshire Rights of Way have asked us to carry out further repairs on several footbridges across the Erewash. Three bridges in particular have substantial deterioration to the timber supports and require work to stem the corrosion of the metal railings. One team is working in the cold, wet weather in an effort to deliver this programme of works prior to the end of this financial year.
"A successful structural repair project needs more than just a good contractor"
