As seen on Channel 4’s Restoring Britain’s Landmarks.
Devastated by fire in 1978, Astley Castle became the subject of an ambitious restoration project spanning three years and costing over £2.5million. Renovated on behalf of the Landmark Trust, a charity that restores and revives historic buildings carefully and sensitively, the castle was selected from six shortlisted buildings in September 2013 to win the Royal Institute of British Architect’s highest accolade.
Our skilled technicians installed over 160 consolidation and stitching Cintec anchors, including two 12 metre anchors. Cintec RAC, RWT, Stud and Rebar Anchors were also used, ranging from 450mm to 12 metres in length. To facilitate the installation of the Cintec Anchors, Diamond Core holes of between 25mm and 65mm in diameter were drilled.
Careful, precision drilling was required to preserve the remaining structure. Cores removed during this process were retained and reused where the anchors were installed, leaving an almost invisible repair.
