Grayson Crest – Reconstruction of 11th floor external wall/ panel replacements and insulated Render System

Comments : 0


Grayson Crest was constructed in 1964 consisting of two 12 storey H block towers built as part of a public housing development scheme. Each block contains 69 dwellings, providing 138 in total.  Construction is of reinforced concrete frame with no-fines infill panels.

External wall panel replacement had to be undertaken at the above tower block address.

Access cradles were suspended off counterbalanced roof rigs with a safety factor of 3 to 1.  These had to be used to enable Frescrete to break out and remove hollow clay blocks which needed to be removed from site.  The power supply had to be taken from the lift motor room and consisted of a 240v 13 amp supply with a 30ma circuit breaker.

Reconstruction of lightweight blockwork external skin including fixings was also undertaken.  An insulated render system was then installed followed by sealant coating.   Upon completion of the work the cradle and suspension beams were removed and taken away from site by Apollo Cradles based in Leeds.
