Strengthening Beams at Atria Shopping Centre, Watford

In April 2023, T&B appointed LSJ Engineering to fit strengthening beams to concrete flooring in Watford, Hertfordshire.

Due to cracks found in a concrete floor slab at the Atria shopping centre, T&B appointed our team to erect 11 strengthening beams to the underside of the concrete. These beams were delivered at night and weighed nearly 800kgs each. Due to their size and weight, the beams were lifted with specialist floor cranes. You can see before-and-after photos below.

The works were completed in less than 2 weeks, which is well within critical timescales. Working to a timescale is extremely important when ensuring concrete is structurally safe! We’re glad we could help, erect the strengthening beams and turn this job around quickly so the Atria shopping centre can continue operating and welcoming visitors.
