Works are on-going in Oxford carrying out Subsidence Repairs using traditional underpinning combined with Twistfix Helibars creating load bearing masonry beams within the brickwork to distribute the altered structural loads and prevent further cracking. As well as Helibars being installed to create masonry beams they are also being used to tie the outer leaf of brickwork to the internal walls resisting further cracking.
