Navigation Road SchoolBack To School!

This Local Authority (Trafford Borough Council) school, built in 1921, offered another project which had to be completed within a tight schedule to fit in with term time. Work involved stabilising the site after collapse of internal cloakroom walls due to the failure of the existing floor slab.

The supervising Structural Engineer on this occasion was Kevan Minors, who commented:

‘This was a tricky project which needed to be completed within a tight schedule. The site investigation proved that a ‘wash-out’ had taken place, creating a floor area void of about 115mm, and causing settlement of some 85mm over 3 metres. Doors were jamming and there was damage to internal walls. Anvil provided all the necessary information quickly and completed the work on time, including putting in a new floor and allowing the caretakers time to prepare the area before the new term’.

We must have done something right, because we subsequently received a congratulatory phone call from the Headmaster thanking us for completing the work on time!
