Oakfield Mansions

Job Description:

Oakfield Mansions is a 15 unit block of flats formed from 3 semi-detached Merchant houses circa 1840. The original buildings had servant quarters and associated cellars on the ground floor the upper 4 floors were used by the families.

During the conversion process late 1970's/1980's there was a major rebuild of one of the houses due to structural issues. As a consequence of this work the cellars were destroyed. On completion of the work the cellar area was filled with rubble and spoil. A reinforced concrete slab was cast over the area of the cellar and now forms part of the car park.

Work is now being undertaken to bring the cellar area back into use by removing the rubble, spoil and redundant shuttering from under the concrete slab. This has exposed the under side of the concrete slab.

What is now required is an assessment as to the integrity of the slab and to determine what additional support, if necessary, is required.

The slab is approximately 6 metres by 4 metres.
