Project Description

The Apprentice Store was filmed as the first programme of the 2009 series.

It was stabilised and retained by constructing a ring of 600mm diameter piles around the property connected by reinforced concrete beams with underpinning nibs, the beams designed to act as a box with torsion fingers as a lid, to provide moment restraint to the piles, significantly increasing the factor of safety against landslide under the property.
