The new welcome centre existing facade retention

Facade Retention at Canterbury Cathedral


We were asked to look at this facade which was held in place by a scaffold tube system. One of the disadvantages of this method is that it does not allow much space for the builder of the new construction to work with. We designed a system using RMD superslim, which could be fitted without too much disruption to the existing system.Which gives more working room, making everyone happy.


Working carefully around the hotel, showing consideration for the residents and vistors to the cathedral. We constructed the temporary concrete bases from which we could anchor the facade. We then adjusted the existing system as we fixed the new equipment. Removing the scaffold tube helped the builder to proceed with construction.

Current situation.

This building face is still being held by our equipment, Should you wish to talk about your project please give us a ring. 01753 646012

RMD Megashor with header beams and Superslim

Emergency propping and shoring

Kier required urgent Temporary works design,shoring and propping to the iconic Castlepoint carpark. Which was closed due to structural problems at great cost.

They appointed EPR we were able to start on site within 24 hours. We installed one thousand two hundred tons of RMD Megashor superslim (Slimshor), and alshor plus. with RMD header beams all within five weeks reducing the programme time for this activity to less than half the allocated time ensuring a saving in excess of £5 million pounds.

Working around the clock with a workforce in excess of seventy operatives, using 14 forklifts. We designed and fabricated a special forklift clamp to ensure that not only was the work done very quickly, but also very safely in confinned conditions with low headroom for our machines.

RMD Megashor props were assembled to the correct height using the Megashor jacks.The RMD header beams were lifted and held in place using our special forklift clamp until the megashor props were able to support the beam. Superslim soldier bracing was then used to tie two props together to complete a stable shoring unit.

In areas where loads on the strucure were not so challenging Alshor plus shoring was placed under soffit. Small areas of Facade Retention were also installed. Maybey also installed mass 50 and mass 25 systems on this project.

Kier's CEO Paul Sheffield was so happy that he thanked Eamonn Rothwell personally for our performance on this contract.

rmd megashor towers using steel beams creates room at bottom of structure to allow access on road

RMD Megashor Facade Retention, Structural Propping and Needling.

This innovative temporary works design allowed the street to stay open and produced the maxiumum wind resistance.This architectural important building was retained on three sides. While a 13 metre deep excavation inside the footprint of external walls took place. Structural propping against the basement walls helped to support the facade walls. Two storeys were added to top of this iconic building. A dramatic increase in the size of this building while conserving the traditional look was a considerable acheivement. E P Rothwell & Sons Ltd are Members of the Temporary Works Forum (TWF)

Placing RMD Super Slim soldiers (Slimshore) in to secure the basement and allowed excavation. When excavation is complete to second level. We installed the next propping system. We then designed and installed the facade retention to the front external walls, continuing around the rest of the building in RMD equipment. The basement slab was removed and we proceeded to underpin the main load bearing walls While this was in progress we backpropped the floors using a combination of RMD Super Slim soldiers (slimshore), Alshor plus and Megashor as well as Maybey mass 50 Propping and bracing was installed on internal walls. Plan bracing was fixed to corners of the building. Tempoary work foundations were design and installed by EPR. Heavy Propping was then used to support the bigger internal floors EPR continued to design the tempoary works as work progressed. With the facade retention system in place, needling commenced on the facade to enlarge openings and EPR designed fabricated and fixed the new structural steel frames.The permenant steel now in place chemical dry packing completed. The heavy propping and needling equipment was dismantled Steel pins wrapped in rebar were designed and fabricated by EPR and incorparated in the high level concrete beams. Which were lifted on Hydraulic jacks to new position.We then braced and jacked all the internal floors and walls.Stuctural steel beams were then fabricated and installed internally. The vibration levels agreed with our clients engineer were not exceeded in this process, which we are very pleased about.

This historical buildings will be converted into new apartments giving a fresh purpose to this wonderful building

Facade Retained of a Architecturally significant building in the west country .

Design challenge

We carried out an accessment of the stabilty and structural integrity of the exterior walls of this unique building. our design kept the architectually rare and important facade for us all to enjoy. Which when the project was complete produced a building with a historic face, but a friendly and enjoyable interior.

Design and Equipment.

Our design considered the new construction assisting the main contractor to achieve a demanding program. But the most important concern was the architectiural conservation of the building.

We designed the towers in RMD megashor with superslim walers.We formed concrete bases which provide the dead weight or kentledge required. Bespoke steel shoring provided additional support, This was fabricated in our Staines workshop keeping all equipment in house. Maybey props were useed in the lower basement areas.

The euthusiastic attitude of the whole team made this a most rewarding and interesting project.

Facade Retention and Propping Portland Square

We were approached to design and erect the Temporary works on this exciting project. We created a temporary works design that used a structural Steel facade for most of the external support to the building this was supplemented by using RMD Superslim soldier raking props and a section of RMD megashor tower. Mabey mass 50 was used internally to support the load bearing walls However most of the temporary work design was the steel facade retention which was designed and fabricated in our yard and placed by our site team using 30 tonne to 50 tonne cranes Access was gained by using Cherrypickers and sissor lifts.

The new construction works were considered in our design and this allowed a fast track programme to be achieved. Most importantly the Facade of a beautiful was retained as the interior was modenised.

RMD superslim (Slimshor) back propping was installed on lower levels of the structure.An Alshor plus soffitt support system was then installed to allow demolition to commence. Because of concerns with the strength of existing walls EPR conducted pull out tests. And a monitoring system was installed.

RMD Megashor propping supported the rear of the building, further shoring was fixed to external walls using mabey 160 raking props.

Propping to upper floors continued using a combination of Gass and Mabey mass 50,RMD super slim (also called Slimshore) and alshor plus.

We are proud to have worked on this fine building

rmd superslim walers with adjustments for new steel columns

RMD superslim beams internal Facade retention.

The permanent works design required the new steel frame to fixed against the existing facade, Our temporary works engineer designed a continuous RMD superslim waler with ninety degree brackets to allow for the steel columns to be fixed without the need for any adjustments to the walers. Saving both time and cost.

Design with the new construction in mind

We always consider the new construction in all our designs, The first image shows the pockets created against the wall which allows for installation of the new steel frame. Alshor plus supported the existing floors where the imposed loads were less challenging.

We also used Structural steel and maybey mass 25 props in the lower basement areas.

RMD Superslim Needling and propping

Facade Retention and Basement Propping


Gilbert Ash approached us to find a solution to this complex projects needs, We produced a temporary works design which was both practical and could be installed quickly.

We installed RMD flying Megashor props to support Building of the new capping beam, Thease allowed work to comence below with no interferance allowing maxiumium production. We also fixed double rows of RMD Superslim soldiers (Slimshore) to front of the structure which kept the rigidity in the frame even though the external walls were removed. We were asked to design and fabricate special steel jackets to protect the existing steel columns in the basement. Thease were then filled with concrete to complete the system. A steel beam and propping arrangement was fixed in the mezzanine space at each floor. This design enabled the propping on this project to be in place supporting the building during construction with miniumium intrustion, making the construction quicker and easier. We also fabricated special steel encasements which were filled with 10mm aggregate concrete to protect existing steel columns in the basement. The central open area through the building was supported by bespoke steel frames fabricated in our staines workshop. We are proud to have been unvolved in this important building.

RMD Superslim using the building walls to increase stability

Facade Retention in RMD Megashor with Structural Propping and Needling

The old Tram sheds in bath is architecturally significant because it is the only large brick building in the city. E P Rothwell in Partnership with RMD produced a temporary works design that was both sympathetic to retaining the existing structure and providing room for the new construction. RMD Megashore Towers with Superslim walers prvides support to the very high walls. RMD superslim is used in corner bracing that uses the strength of the structure to help keep the walls in place. Superslim walers are used between towers against the existing building. Mabey mass 50 was used in basement areas. Aluminmium alshor system was used internally to carry lighter loads. We are proud to have helped conserve this grand old historic building. E P Rothwell are an indepentant company therefor we are not tied to any Temporary works system and can advise on the most suitable design and equipment for your project, please ring us for advice.

Using RMD Header beams allows the road to stay open

Facade Retention

Why use façade retention

In many urban areas a Structure is often redeveloped, but in order to preserve the historical appearance of its building, Local planning or conservation policy may require that the existing facade is retained and the new structure is built behind the existing façade. Façade retention is a temporary works solution to keep the façade of the building, whilst the internal structure is remodelled and modernised to produce very attractive living spaces. Façade retention can also be used to help support adjoining buildings and party walls.

Design challenges

It is important to consider the intended method of new construction and demolition process, when designing the façade retention. As the temporary works clashing with the new structure could impact on the programme.

Internal or external systems

Both have advantages, External systems are less disturbing to the construction and demolition process. And can be used as a gantry for site offices and a loading platform for materials. Internal this is generally more cost effective, less intrusion outside of the building envelope and can be more easily braced against the internal walls. They also need less temporary foundations

Which Equipment should you use?

We can advise and design the most suitable façade retention for you as we use several types of proprietary equipment, as well as scaffolding and structural steel. We also have a monitoring and jacking teams as well as a fabrication workshop at our yard in Staines. We always prioritise safety and design as it is of paramount importance in order to minimise the impact of our presence on local residents, traffic, adjoining buildings and the local environment.

What next? Why not give us a chance to look at your project

the towers provide excellent wind resistance for the walls

Facade Retention and corner bracing in RMD Superslim

Working in Partnership with RMD, E P Rothwell installed the various types of propping on this Architectural significant building.

There is a tower facade retention system on the South Side of the building. Along the north wall a rmd flying shore system is tied together with scaffold tubes. This system allows maxiumim space for the new construction process

East Wall

The east wall has RMD superslim corner bracing which is holding the building facade in postion. Almost all this project was constructed in RMD Superslim showing what a versatile product it is. We carefully designed the walings to avoid the new floors, enabling the main contractor to sucessfully achieve the tight programme.

We keep a large stock of many differant propping and shoring products for you to hire or we can provide a design supply and install package contract.

Facade Retention and Structural Propping

We were approached to design the Temporary works on this iconic project, Which when we looked at the design we made several suggestions which the design team agreed to and redesigned some elements of the project. The challenges on this site included a working restaurant which the kitchen supplied six other estabalishments. Which was directly underneath a large area of this development. Very narrow streets with high volumes of traffic both foot and mechanical. Our suggestion of internal support removed the risks these from these situations. We created a temporary works design featuring RMD Superslim soldier props.RMD Alshor Plus and RMD Megashor were used in some areas on the perimeter. Mabey mass 50 props were used in the basement areas. Working with the site team we were able to avoid disturbance to the Cambridge theatre and the other tenants within this complex Needling to the first floor was designed and completed using RMD Superslim with steel needles. Completing the project well ahead of programme we have been recommended on two other projects by Derek Bowyer the Project Manager.
