Many refurbishment projects require the skills and expertise of a structural engineer. Whether adding bi-fold doors to the rear of your house or making changes to the internal layout, such as removing structural walls, a structural engineer is essential.
If you need structural steel or other structural elements designed as part of your project, please get in touch. Our Panel Engineers are tried and tested through the delivery of numerous projects and trusted for their sage advice and precise calculations, drawings and designs.
With our engineers working in conjunction with our architectural team, we can provide a complete set of construction drawings for any structural system, whether a single beam or a multi-component configuration.
Use our form to submit your project details, and we will return a price for you to complete the structural elements.
My job is only small do I still need an Engineer?
When do I need a Structural Engineer?
Architects and Engineers work collaboratively on most projects including the following types of project:
- Building an Extension
- Loft Conversions
- Removal of Existing Chimney Structures
- Modifying or Removal of Existing Load Bearing Walls
- Fitting of Solar Panels (Roof Loading)
- Underpinning of Foundations
- Modifying Door or Window Openings
- Building of Retaining Walls
Structural Engineers are also used in monitoring and determining structural movement and subsidence and designing the engineering solutions to correct those problems. You may also be referred to a Structural Engineer by a Surveyor during a property purchase for example to ensure the property is stable.
What does a Structural Engineer do?
Their designs/calculations will ensure that the structure does not deflect, rotate, vibrate or collapse and this will ensure that the building remains structurally stable and secure.
