Barn Conversion Mining Related Problems Solved

Aquasource were asked to come up with a solution for a client who wished to convert a barn which was underlain by old Mine Workings.

Demolition and rebuilding was an option but we suggested the use of a series of cantilevered beams supported on tension and compression rock socketed mini piles.

A design was produced for us by the John Knevitt practice of Wadebridge and we started by installing the mini piles to bedrock.

A series of pockets were made in the foundations of the property to transfer the load to the beams.

A long slab was cast incorporating the piles and beams and supporting the mining affected wall over its whole length.

This proved to be a cost effective way of saving the building without demolition and rebuild.
