What is it
Load-bearing walls are one of the most common structures in building structures. They are stable and durable, but unlike a column frame structure, the flexibility they allow and changes in layouts are more difficult.
For this reason, it may be necessary to open holes in load-bearing walls or eliminate them.
What does it consist of
First, it is very important to carry out a previous load study, in which the drop in loads and their magnitude are studied. The modifications that may exist in the entire height of the wall where it is intervened, possible problems in the foundation are valued. Then the intervention is proposed and designed based on the structural calculation and the type of action. With the project, a license is requested and it is put on public display by the community of neighbors if appropriate.
“All load-bearing wall shorings are different. Some are with two attached “U” profiles, in others a fully embedded beam can be placed, an “IPE” or “HEB”, in some cases it can be done in two parts, in others not”
What will the customer get
In the first phase of Previous Studies, it is known if the magnitude of the intervention that the client has thought is possible or if some point in the intervention needs to be modified. Then the structure and the process to execute it (the steps and provisional shoring) are designed. Finally, the control of the work is carried out, which must be intensive because there are many critical points in the intervention.
