Project Details

Project: Rib Beam Strengthening, Barnsley Hospital Maternity Ward

Client: Barnsley NHS Trust

Contract Duration: 4 weeks

Scope of Works: Rib beam strengthening for new birthing pools.

Built in the 1970’s this concrete framed building had a beam and block floor construction and analysis showed they were not strong enough to carry the point load of the new birthing pools. Our design analysis results showed that these beams could be strengthened for additional flexure using our own unique Carbon Fibre Strengthening system, however due to the limited width of the beams our wet lay-up system was not feasible.
