Services

We provide a wide range of Structural Engineering services ranging from single beam design to new build projects. Our engineers and structural surveyors in London will help you to check the structural integrity of your property and will provide an appropriate solution. Some of the services we provide are listed below.


New Build Recent Projects
For new build projects, we have undertaken the structural design of many types of building utilizing most construction techniques and material types. This includes reinforced concrete, structural steelwork, masonry and timber. Most of our new build residential development projects have been for blocks of flats and houses. The work has often included a complete structural package. Structural forms vary and include traditional load bearing walls with timber or precast concrete floors, but our expertise also includes timber frame construction. We can provide a full design package, including detailed drawings and calculations for foundation, columns, walls, beams, floors, roofs and details.

Loft conversions in London homes are increasingly popular. As people look to extend their property (rather than move), a loft conversion is a good and cost-effective option. Our experienced Structural Engineers provide a complete design package for loft conversions in London, including detailed drawings for the structure and calculations for building regulations approval. Changing the structure incorrectly could damage the roof, which in turn causes weathering issues. It could also damage the structure below the loft, because loads have been redirected to inappropriate elements of the building. Ultimately, you could end up devaluing your home by undertaking an ill-advised conversion. Some engineers provide just calculations, which can leave your builder unclear on details and will likely mean they charge more than necessary for the build as a result.

Homeowners often opt for house extensions in London and the surrounding areas when they need more space. Families tend to outgrow their property over time as their needs change, and extending is a smart option. The costs of moving are so high in London, and also there are other implications like changing children’s schools. However, an extension always involves structural engineering of the foundations, walls and roof, rooms, available space and more. So, there is the need for more innovative structural designs. And of course, supporting the first floor, wall and roof above the opening into the extension requires structural design and specification. Often a designer will tell a client about the need for ‘structural calculations’ late in the process of house extensions – which almost certainly leads to increased construction costs. Involving a structural engineer early can help identify minor design changes which make the scheme far easier and cheaper to build. Whilst Building Control will inspect during the build phase, you may wish to have your engineer inspect construction to confirm that the structural design has been implemented correctly. With any type of home renovation, a structural engineer is required to compile the structural drawings required by the building team. In the case of an extension, if the services of an architect are required, you will need a structural engineer to ensure the stability and structural integrity of the architectural designs produced. Our engineers will provide full detailed drawings with calculations including critical stability checks which can then be submitted for Building Regulations approval.

Basement conversions are increasingly popular. Converted or new basements tend to be used for utility rooms, games rooms, cinemas and other spaces that don’t require natural light – although there are creative ways to bring light in using light shafts or voids that extend to the floor above. An engineering design is required to achieve Building Regulations approval, without which the basement may devalue the property. And for that, you need to work with an experienced basement conversions. Structural design is critical to this work. A single mistake could cause significant structural damage to your property and your neighbours’ properties too. Our engineers can provide design and drawings suitable for Building Regulations approval of the structure.

A Structural Survey is carried out by a Chartered Structural Engineer. They specifically look at the structural integrity of the property in detail for areas of concern like subsidence. A structural survey is also carried out when alterations are required to the property in terms or removing load bearing walls in order to check its feasibility and provide an appropriate solution for the change. Our experienced structural surveyor in London can help you with tailor-made report to address your concerns.

Making internal alterations or removing walls needs to be done correctly. Cutting corners risks weakening the structure of your property or even your building collapsing altogether There are two types of wall in a house or building: load-bearing and non-load bearing walls. A load-bearing wall supports the weight of other elements of the house, such as the roof, floor or a wall above, so taking it out without professional help could have a dramatic effect on your home. If the building isn’t supported correctly during the removal then there’s a risk of the building actually collapsing. At the very least, you could find that the structural integrity of your home is compromised if you remove a load-bearing wall. If the wall you want to remove is load-bearing, you’ll need a Structural Engineer to specify what is required to be done. It could mean a reinforced steel joist (RSJ) is required to support the upper floor when the wall is removed. We can help you here: we will calculate the correct loads and provide design to support the structure. These calculations and drawings are then given to a builder who will liaise with a steel fabricator to manufacture the steel beam and deliver it to site. Building regulations approval can be sought using our drawing and calculations.
