The 170 year-old, Grade II listed, Hook Norton Brewery in Oxfordshire, was suffering from internal and external cracking due to the failure of 15 brick arches, as a result of internal timbers decaying and movement of the surrounding brickwork.
HeliBars, from Helifix, were bonded into mortar beds above each opening, on both the interior and exterior walls, forming masonry beams that reinforced the brickwork, supported the wall above and spread the loads. Other cracks were stitched using single HeliBars, bonded across the cracks.
These sympathetic repairs efficiently and economically restored integrity, whilst retaining the original materials and aesthetics of this important listed structure.
