Case Study – Pioneer House, Dewsbury

Pioneer House, Dewsbury

Structural timber survey of Pioneer House following an extended period of dereliction.


Again many problems caused by complex composite Victorian engineering, including very large span timber and steel trusses over a high Ball Room. The ends of the trusses were all housed in iron shoes and required assessment by micro drill.
