Heritage Home: Slide, Levelling & Foundations
Problem: The two-storey, 70 tonne house was in danger of being demolished, and the site was very tight.
Solution: In order to rebuild the foundations, the only solution was to use Sliding to move the house; slide the house to the back section of the foundations, replace the front section, slide the house back, then complete the foundations. The foundation re-build was done safely, efficiently and accurately; another piece of history preserved. The owner was delighted.
“House Lifters were engaged to re-level our earthquake damaged two-storey, concrete house in lower Cashmere, which is on a steep site with difficult access. Engaging House Lifters proved an excellent decision. They started work on the agreed date and despite some shocking weather along the way they finished ahead of schedule.”
