What is Structural Modification?

Structural modification, otherwise known as ‘cut and carve’, involves altering the structure of a building. This can be required for a number of reasons, such as correcting a structural flaw, fixing damage, or accommodating a proposed change to the building. Robore employ various methods during cut and carve, such as diamond drilling, concrete cutting, bursting, breaking, crunching and more.

How does Structural Modification work?

Structural modification is a complex process which requires a high level of planning and technical expertise. Before works can start, detailed drawings are prepared and submitted to clients.

During cut and carve projects, load bearing elevations are often required to be relocated. This can be a complex process which involves propping up the building. We always ensure that works are completed in a safe and environmentally friendly manner and pride ourselves on the strong business relationships and rapport that we have built over the years.
