  • Excellent Structural Design for a Listed Building

    10Verified Review

    We have a Grade II listed cottage and the main reception room had a very badly positioned post slap-bang in the middle that was holding up a long beam that had slipped over time so some of the joists were only just in contact. We were given Kexun’s details by a preservation consultant and Kexun worked within the confines of the LBC to devise a way to remove the supporting post, strengthen the main beam with steels, bolt in side joists and then conceal the steel using reclaimed oak. The carpenters found Kexun’s drawing simple to follow and the resulting work is fantastic!
