A positive approach to your Structural Engineering challenges
Finding the right Structural Engineer is a crucial part of most projects, as they are responsible for the structural design of anything that supports a load, such as the wall and floors. If you are planning a new build or renovation, our expert Structural Engineers will ensure the structural integrity of your property at every stage.
If you are thinking of purchasing an older property, a Structural Engineer is vital to check any structural concerns you may have. Any large cracks or bulging in walls need to be assessed to detect any serious problems before you go ahead. As well as this, we can identify and diagnose any problems, and help you understand what action is needed and their implications.
Planning an extension?
A Structural Engineer is also needed if you are planning an extension – especially where structural work such as Party Wall Matters may affect neighbours. An expert opinion can save costly mistakes in the future. Speak to us about your extension, loft conversion, garage conversion, cellar conversion, removing internal or external walls, beams or columns, altering windows and chimneys or putting in new drainage.
