STRUCTURAL 
ALTERATION PROJECTS

Project: Wrens Cross

Scope: Enabling

Duration: 26 Weeks

Evolution were contacted due to the buildings on site being unstable.

As a result of initial surveys we undertook back propping and structural support works enabling access and further works. We were then tasked with the full structural remediation of the salvageable parts of the listed building and the construction of new internal and external structural elements. The building was adjoined to a funeral directors and morgue, which also required significant temporary works to prevent structural collapse.

Our scope of works included:

  • Surveying for structural stability

  • Temporary and emergency propping

  • Demolition

  • Construction of new floors and walls

  • All new structural timber elements

  • Scaffold

The works required significant planning and co-ordination with our temporary works engineers, clients, structural engineers and historic England.
