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
