Pier Movement

This house in the Hobart area, had a mixture of brick and timber piers that were sitting on the existing clay, without a concrete pad. We supported the existing floor and removed the sub-standard piers. We excavated and poured new concrete pads and fixed new galvanised steel piers in the concrete and to the timber bearer. Working height for this job varied from 900 mm to 300 mm.
