Many refurbishment projects such as opening the rear of a house to fit bi-fold doors or extensions, internal layout changes including removal of structural walls require the skills and expertise of a structural engineer.
If as part of your project you need structural steel or other structural elements designed then please get in touch. Our Panel Engineers are tried and tested through delivery of numerous projects and trusted for their sage advice, clear calculations, drawings and designs.
Whether it is a single beam or a multiple component structural system our engineers will be able to work with you in conjunction with our Architectural Team to provide a full set of construction drawings.
Use our form to submit details of your project 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.
What is the difference between an Architect & a Structural Engineer?
How much does a Structural Engineer Cost?
