Barn conversion king trusses - Case study
Updated: Apr 20
Earlier this month Carter Plant Hire was working with Gater Contractors, a Sidmouth-based family firm, to remove old king trusses from a barn conversion at Silverton near Exeter. The trusses will be examined carefully to see whether they can be repaired and reused or if new ones will be required.
As with any old building in a poor state of repair, extreme care was needed when lifting to ensure that no damage was caused. As you can see in the photo above, the tops of the walls are in poor condition with loose rubble and plants growing from them.
Carter Plant Hire has a wealth of experience working with contractors on both new-build and heritage properties. If you would like further details of the services we offer please contact us or telephone 01395 446 446.
