Project focus: Façade retention and skate sliding at Chenil House, Chelsea, London
For planning reasons the listed 120 year old ‘Dutch Gable’ elevation at Chenil House, King’s Road, Chelsea, London was required to be retained and relocated intact to a new position to accommodate a new development behind it. This paper describes the design and construction of the support, bracing, and transport structures, together with the jacking and skate arrangements adopted in the implementation.
