Project DescriptionThe Project: Structural anchoring to facilitate coping stone consolidation on the South West corner of the world famous Tower Bridge, London.
In 2017, the bridge required works to enable the consolidation of the coping stones on the South West corner.
Due to previous experience working on other famous heritage sites such as Medieval castles and bridges, Protectahome were approached by the Structural Engineer appointed as Project Manager to act as the contractor on a structural anchoring solution.
The installation process involved specialist diamond drilling expertise whilst extra care and skill were demanded due to both the solid granite structure and the historical importance of the site.
Once in place, the sock anchors were inflated with specialist cementitious grout to secure them within the structure. The installed anchors would then aid in the consolidation of the coping stones when replaced around and fixed to them.
Due to the extremely busy and high profile nature of the site, both health & safety and time constraints were of particular importance on the project and Protectahome were able to complete the works on time, within budget and without incident, much to the satisfaction of the end client.
