Specialist Building Services concentrate on
general building works and repairs, with the emphasis on quality,
finish and safety as our priorities. Our works range from structural
repairs through to decorating, and we also run a design consultation
Using our architect we can
discuss your requirements, have the plans drawn and submit them for
planning & building approval. This saves you hours of time and
trouble, since our service comes as a complete package.
Specialist Building Services were originally involved in structural repairs in the name of The Wall Tie Company and Wall Tie Contracts.
The Wall Tie Company was based in Sheffield and concentrated on cavity wall tie replacement, due to the extensive use of black ash mortar in the construction of properties. The mortar had a high sulphur content and produced a dilute sulphuric acid when the mortar became damp. This led to corrosion, over a period of years, leaving cavity walls unstable and, consequently, unsafe.
Wall Tie Contracts were involved in many high profile jobs, including Grand Buildings, Trafalgar Square, London. The company were sub contracted to Higgs & Hill plc and carried out the fitting of all G.R.C. (glass re-enforced concrete) and G.R.P. (glass re-enforced gypsum) panels to the atrium and general areas. Other contracts included Meadowhall, Salford Fire Station and shopping centres in Winchester.
