All sorts of events can seriously damage buildings - fire, flood, wind, earthquake.
Often, there is a desire to save what's left, so it can be restored.
A common technique is to fabricate a supporting framework of wood or metal. But this can take time, during which further damage can occur.
needed is a very quick way of supporting and protecting the structure.
The BorgCo exoskeleton kit is the quick, easy solution. Simply use a backhoe to scoop out some large holes in the ground close to the structure to be protected, and fill them with concrete. Once it has set, drill and fix the base plates to the concrete blocks.Alignments aren't critical, as there is plenty of scope for adjustment.
Lower the sectional support pillars onto the bases and bolt them down. Adjust for verticality and rotation. Lock the adjusters. Link the pillars with sectional prefabricated beams. Keep adding sections until the building is completely enclosed in an extremely strong, rigid and durable frame.
Attach jacks, braces, cables or wedges to the exoskeleton to provide the necessary support.
The frame can be covered with flexible or rigid sheeting to provide weather protection.
After use, the frame can be dismantled, cleaned, repainted, and stored until next required.
