54 Hagley Road, Birmingham
Cushman & Wakefield
Grade A high-rise office building located in central Birmingham. The building was in need of repairs due to water ingress and structural damage at roof level.
HIGH STAKES REPAIR YIELDS TOP RESULTS
T&D was commissioned by Cushman & Wakefield’s team to undertake repairs to their prestigious office block at 54 Hagley Road in Birmingham.
After installing a 36m high scaffold access tower in a busy pedestrian area (with all the necessary legal and planning requirements put in place) our assessment team conducted a full survey. This determined the building’s exact state of repair in full and our proposed solution was promptly carried out.
The flat roof was damaged in several places and a Decothane liquid applied membrane was deemed to be the optimal solution.
Following repair work and preparation of the surface by our roofing team, a total of 540 m2 of the waterproofing system was laid to ensure that further damp ingress into the building was prevented.
On the east elevation, structural damage to the brickwork was identified and remedied by our repair crew using a specialist access cradle.
The project took 26 weeks from start to finish and every care was taken each step of the way to ensure minimal disruption to the building, its occupants, and the general public.
Battling the elements and adhering to the most stringent health and safety conditions, our teams were able to carry out the full repair work on time and within budget.
