In construction, the structural works refer to the method of assembling and constructing structural elements. These structural elements make the entire building strong enough to sustain the load of further construction. They not only support the construction but also transmit applied loads in the safest way possible. Some of the popular examples of structural works would be bearing-wall, membrane, frame, suspension and many more. Also, there are three categories among structural works. They are termed as low-rise, long-span and high-rise. There are different types of structures too in an entire construction. Some of the examples would be cable structures, vaults, membrane structures, and domes.

Structural works include:

Removing load barrel walls: 

 

Engineers draw up detailed plans and drawings before effectively knocking through load-bearing walls. The removal of a load bearing wall must be carefully calculated and carried out to ensure the structure remains sound and stable. We understand that knock throughs, massively improve the design, flows & natural lighting in your building or property. 

Propping:

 

In structural works, propping is a system of structural members used for temporarily supporting loads. Propping materials come in various shapes and sizes, so can be used for a wide variety of projects. We often use acrow props to support medium loads, but other regular types we use include tilt props, trishore props, mono props and titan props. Our team accurately installs propping systems to provide safe and secure support to structures.

Underpinning: 

 

We undertake underpinning for various construction projects across London, including in Mayfair, Kensington and construction projects in East London too. Underpinning is the method of strengthening faulty foundations or increasing the depth of the foundation. Underpinning may be needed for a number of reasons, such as to support additional building storeys or to repair an unstable foundation. Our team is able to offer a variety of underpinning methods, including traditional mass concrete, which involves sectional excavating to a pre-planned depth (below the structures footing) and filling the excavated cavity with a poured concrete mix, which is left to cure.

Foundations:

 

Foundations need to be strong to ensure the safety, stability and durability of a building. The foundation of a building is the lower section of the structure that transfers its gravity loads to the ground. 

 

There are two main types of foundations; shallow and deep. To determine which is best, we calculate the required depth in relation to the design of a building and the ground conditions. Shallow foundations are best when the surface soils offer enough support. Deep foundations are used to transfer gravity loads deep enough, to find the most suitable soils.

Refurbishments:

 

If you require contractors or subcontractors for refurbishment structural works in Central London, or even structural works in Greater London or nearby areas, our fully trained workforce can help. We provide structural repairs, renovations and modifications throughout London.

Excavation is the method of removing earth to form a cavity in the ground. At VCCR Build Construction Ltd, our team has years of experience completing excavations as groundwork contractors and subcontractors.

Our team is knowledgeable in essential Health & Safety policies to help protect workers on site, the general public and all nearby properties.
