Hayes Higgins Partnership was appointed by Carlow County Council to undertake condition surveys, structural reports and recommendations for demolition, repair or refurbishment for 10 local authority houses in Carlow County.

These houses were located around County Carlow and following approval of our proposals we proceeded to tender the works to small and medium building contractors.

Foundation solutions included full rebuild of properties including piled foundations for properties on poor ground to underpinning of buildings following an extended period of water leakage.

Minor repairs involved bonding and strapping of significant cracks and re-pointing of minor cracking.
