|October 2013 Site Meeting with Structural Engineer Ummed Singh to access the structural damage|
|Structural Drawings showing repair of cracks by inserting steel plates|
|Structural repair of arch by resetting by reconstruction|
Instead we decided to work with simple principles of structural design and provide support and repair by rebuilding for the arch failures etc. Crack stitching by stainless steel plates was achieved by locally manufacturing the SS steel plates and carefully inserting them, into the cracked area and repacking the brickwork complete with lime mortar.
|Locally manufactured SS steel plates weighing almost 32 kgs as per design of structural engineer|
|After inserting the steel plate the cavity has been packed with bricks and lime mortar|
