This was a PRC Cornish Unit Repair undertaken by J.C. Mitchell Builders in June 2015. The PRC property in Fraddon was a large 4 bedroom Cornish Unit with a modern extension attached to the side of the property.

With the rear completed, the accro props are moved around the front of the building to stabilize the property while the the PRC and concrete slabs are removed and the walls rebuilt in the same manner as the rear. The existing extension on the right of the property added an additional difficulty to the repair but we were able to rebuild the side with out falling behind schedule.

After 4 weeks, which included re boarding and skimming the downstairs ceilings , the work is completed and the PRC repair signed off. The PRC certificate is then released to the homeowner.
