WIND BEATER

Plant

WIND BEATER: Mabey Hire has supplied structural support on a £1.8 million redevelopment project in Manchester city centre for contractor Bluestone. The shoring specialist was called in to prevent the suction effect of the wind threatening the remaining walls.

Engineer White Young Green specified a system that could be built before demolition, while exerting no horizontal forces on the neighbouring properties.

Mabey's System 160 Mark III soldier system can be dismantled in parallel with the erection of the new steel frame.
