Historic Restoration: Mid-Lift, Propping and Foundation Replacement
Problem: As part of the Auckland City Council’s Historic Restoration programme, Albert cottage was on the list of historic buildings to be repaired and restored for future generations.
Solution: House Lifters were able to transfer their mobile lifting kit to site, in order to carry out careful lifting and propping works so that new piles and foundations could be easily installed, without damaging the original cottage.
“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.”
