We provides a variety of subsidence and structural repairs for commercial buildings in Manchester. Subsidence can cause huge problems to the operation of commercial buildings such as shopping centres and offices. It is imperative that work is done as quickly as possible to correct subsidence, this will minimise costs and potential loss of revenue to the owner or occupier. The team of experts at SAU are on hand to provide the most efficient, non-invasive subsidence repair for all types of commercial properties in Manchester.

Our resin injection method is efficient and non-invasive. There is no need for any excavation, and work is completed in a fraction of the time of traditional re-levelling methods.

Signs of Subsidence

Many commercial properties in Manchester are in need of structural reinforcement due to their age. Wear and tear due to weather and other environmental factors take its tole on the foundations of buildings in Manchester, and it is imperative that these issues are resolved quickly.

Cracked walls are the most common sign of subsidence. These cracks will usually appear in the walls or on the floors of the building and in most cases they form diagonally. Cracks may appear inside, showing across plaster work, or they may form outside the building in brickwork. Sinking floors are easier to spot and are also a sign of subsidence. Look out for uneven floors or the formation of gaps across the skirting boards.

Some other common signs of subsidence include:

• Structural damage
• Gaps between doors and windows
• The structure of the building starts to lean
• Water damage from faulty drains
• Water in the sink flows in the opposite direction

Fast action is imperative if subsidence is suspected, as the faster that work can be carried out, the less likely it is to incur significant costs and damage later on.

Impact of Subsidence

The most obvious impact of subsidence on a commercial building is damage to property. This damage can incur massive costs if not resolved quickly. For business owners in Manchester, this can have a hugely negative impact on revenue. Other implications include the shutting down of operations whilst work is carried out and damage is repaired. This will impact the revenue of the affected building, and therefore it is important that work is carried out in a fast and efficient way. The risk to health and safety posed by subsidence is also of great concern, as this can lead to injuries and have financial implications due to insurance claims.

Insurance companies will usually cover for subsidence, however it is the responsibility of the owner of the property to check specific terms and conditions of individual policies, as the costs of insurance claims for subsidence may be high.

For Manchester-based businesses, it is imperative that disruption to every-day operations is kept to a minimum, that is why the team of experts at SAU prioritise safety and convenience.

Our resin injection method does not require any excavation, therefore the property and its occupants can operate as usual with no need to vacate. Our use of resin injection replaces the need for costly and disruptive excavation. Instead, our team of experts use precise surveying technology, as well as precision drilling, to create small holes in the ground slabs. These holes are then filled with our expanding resin compound, and the building is lifted back to its original place. Any gaps and cracks in the walls that have been caused by subsidence will close and the building will return to its original, safe level.

Subsidence Repairs for Warehouse and Factories in Manchester

Many of the warehouses and factories across Manchester are at risk of having structural issues. This can be due to a variety of environmental factors, however, warehouses and factories which rely on heavy machinery often find that years of ground vibration has impacted the foundations of the building and resulted in subsidence. The most common signs of subsidence in warehouses and manufacturing complexes in Manchester are un-level concrete floors, driveways and hardstand areas. Subsidence occurs when the original foundations of a building are no longer suitable for the ground that it has been built on.

It is important that work is done quickly to minimise the impact of subsidence on warehouses and manufacturing complexes, as the damages and shut down time on-site can have huge financial implications.

SAU specialise in providing a fast and efficient solution to ground re-levelling and subsidence repair. Using our non-invasive method, we are able to lift and re-level the floor without any impact on day-to-day operations.

Signs of Subsidence

Sinking floors or uneven concrete slabs are the most common sign of factory or warehouse subsidence. Sloping floors are easy to spot as they will look unbalanced and tilted.

Cracked walls are a common sign of subsidence. These cracks will usually appear in the walls or on the floors of the building and in most cases they form diagonally. Cracks may appear inside, showing across plaster work, or they may form outside the building in brickwork. Sinking floors are easier to spot and are also a sign of subsidence. Look out for uneven floors or the formation of gaps across the skirting.

Some other common signs of subsidence include:

• Structural damage
• Gaps between doors and windows
• The structure of the building starts to lean
• Water damage from faulty drains
• Water in the sink flows in the opposite direction

Fast action is imperative if subsidence is suspected, as the faster that work can be carried out, the less likely it is to incur significant costs and damage later on.

Impact Of Subsidence On The Workforce

Sloping floors have a hugely negative impact on the ability for forklifts and other stacking devices. This can often result in a shut down of operations and disruption to other services.

Sinking warehouse floors also pose a risk to the health and safety of the workforce, therefore it is important that action is taken to repair this quickly.

Insurance companies will usually cover for subsidence and damage such as sinking floors, however it is the responsibility of the owner of the property to check specific terms and conditions of individual policies, as the costs of insurance claims for subsidence may be high.
