Project in Eaton Square!
GSS are currently undertaking major structural alterations to both ground floor and lower ground floors to a prestigious Eaton Square project.
A complex system of two stage jacking works is required to pre-load the new piled foundations and to pre-deflect the new concrete structure. This was necessary in order to minimise potential movement to the upper inhabited apartments.
The first stage jacking works have been successfully undertaken whereby some initial settlement of the building was restored.
The second phase jacking works will be undertaken once the ground floor construction is complete. Its purpose is to transfer load from the superstructure temporary works into the permanent RC structure.
