Why employ a Clerk of Works? – Heli-bar
How many time have we seen this?
Resin not applied to the chase before fixing the Helibar.
Helibar not embedded in resin.
Another instance on a different site.
Bars cut too short.
Resin not applied to the chase.
Helibar not embedded in the resin.
No chase to fill with resin to carry out the structural repair.
Close up of Heli-bar and resin.
The whole exercise is pointless.
Expensive structural repair systems incorrectly installed and so not doing the job for which they were designed.
The client pays for repairs but they are worse than useless. The structural problems persist or are even made worse due to the horizontal chases cut into the masonry.
Fortunately these defective works were spotted before they were closed up. The operatives who were supposedly already approved Helifix installers were trained before being allowed back on site to complete the works to a satisfactory and structurally sound standard.
