Helical System Basingstoke Water Tower
The Water Tower was part of a hospital complex in Basingstoke, Which Thomas Homes along with other developers are converting into a residential area. The Water Tower which forms a focal point of the development has had the water tanks removed ready to be turned into residential units, But the tower had formed some serious structural cracking.
Maclennan was contacted and together with Cemties scheme was designed and put forward along with a fixed price quotation to the main contractor. The scheme consisted of using Helical System and cemties. This would prevent the building for degrading until an external repair can be carried out, as this was not possible at this time. MacLennan Structural Solutions department won the work at competitive tender against other contractors. The works were carried by Maclennan Structural Solutions in two phases to suit the main contractors plans. The joins were cut out ready for the Helical System to be installed, then the Cemties were also drilled ready for installation.
Once all cutting and drilling had been carried out, the Helical System and Cemties were installed. When all Structural works by MacLennan had been carried out, the main contractor was then safe
