Helifix helps preserve historic Titanic dock pump house

November 2018

Helifix non-disruptive and concealed masonry repair systems have been installed on the large pump house adjacent to the historic 850 feet long Thompson Graving Dock in Belfast, where Titanic and its sister ship Olympic were both fitted out.

Opened in 1911, this long terrace of gabled brick buildings required major structural repairs and stabilisation due to historic settlement and rotation. Now part of the Titanic Foundation, it was important that these repairs were sympathetic, restoring structural integrity while retaining the original appearance of the buildings.

Over 500 metres of stainless steel HeliBars were bonded into channelled-out mortar beds to stitch cracks in the masonry, which after re-pointing, were completely hidden from view.

Bespoke manufactured SockFix grouted sock anchors, ranging from 1.2 to 5 metres in length were used to reinstate failed arches and lintels, and reconnect main elevations to internal cross walls. These anchors were inserted into core-drilled clearance holes before being pumped full of grout, expanding the sock to fill voids and forming a strong mechanical connection with the masonry; the retained cores were then replaced in the external masonry to create an almost invisible repair.

Furthermore, providing additional peace of mind, this major repair programme was undertaken by a Helifix-trained Approved Installer and covered by a Helifix 10 year insurance-backed warranty.

For project-specific technical advice about the use of Helifix concealed structural repair products and techniques contact the Helifix team on 020 8735 5200. Alternatively, go to www.helifix.co.uk for full product information, relevant literature and a wide range of case studies.

Helifix Dixie micro-piles used to support Air Chief Marshal statue

October 2018

More typically used to support and stabilise buildings, the versatile Helifix Dixie piled foundation system has recently been installed at The Battle of Britain Bunker Museum, RAF Uxbridge, to support a statue of World War II hero, Air Chief Marshal, Sir Keith Park.

Due to the proximity of this new statue to both electrical and drainage services, Dixie micro-piles were selected as a reliable and cost-effective alternative to traditional concrete foundations. These Helifix pipe piles screw into virtually any type of soil, quickly and easily, with minimal disruption, noise or spoil removal and would be easier to extract from the ground in the future, by simply being 'unscrewed'.

Detailed ground investigations showed the area to have a top layer of made ground above clay and sandy gravels, with load bearing strata at around five metres. Four triple flight Dixie micro-piles were torque-driven to the design depth using the hand-held Helifix hydraulic drive head.

Each micro-pile was levelled and topped with an engineered steel plate; these were then cast into a metre thick concrete plinth to which the new statue was affixed.

For project-specific technical advice on the use of Dixie micro-piles, for both temporary and permanent foundations of new build structures or remedial support for existing buildings, please contact the Helifix team on 020 8735 5200. Alternatively, go to our videos page to watch a step-by-step installation and download relevant technical brochures.
