OUR SERVICES

NEW BUILDS

If you want to build a new home from the foundation, we design and offer all the elements you require to see your project to its completion. This includes full calculations with floor plans, cross-sections, and structural details, all of which are included in our structural design packages.

REAR EXTENSIONS

Rather than looking for a bigger place, you may consider extending your home. From side infills to rear home extensions, we offer several options to extend and maximize your internal living spaces. This also includes flush floor and ceiling finishes, uninterrupted running walls and minimal steel structures for support.

LOFT CONVERSIONS

If you’re unable to add extensions to your home from the side we can also convert your attic into an additional habitable room. We offer our clients the most economical loft conversion strategy which maximizes the strengths of the existing structure and spaces in order to ensure that additional structures are not required to be built.

BASEMENTS

One of the best ways to increase the value of your property by a factor of two is by having a basement. Whether its a partial or full basement with light-wells, we provide full design and detailing, with calculations and bar bending schedules to compliment your project.

INTERNAL ALTERATIONS

There are several ways to improve the existing living spaces in your home, whether by creating larger openings or by removing walls entirely. By using existing structural elements within your home (steel and tinder beams) we aim to reduce costs wherever we can and maximize your budget.

CHIMNEY REMOVAL

As chimneys are becoming more and more redundant, we can offer our clients the option of removing them completely leaving a flush ceiling finish. This minimal structure can be done by easily demolishing the chimney structure.

STRUTURAL SURVEY & REPORT

Whether you are planning to purchase a property, are an existing landlord or an insurer; we can undertake a structural inspection of your property and provide a report that will fulfill the requirements to satisfy the appropriate parties. Structural surveys are an essential part of any valuation.

DRAFTING SERVICES

Our in-house CAD Technicians work to ensure that all required details are incorporated into all our projects for submission to building control authorities so that the relevant regulations for your projects can be met.

MEZZANINE FLOOR

A mezzanine floor is an intermediate floor between main floors of a property and usually presents the form of a balcony. Mezzanine floors offer practical and large floor spaces for commercial, office or home developments. We can design the full structural steelwork, breams, and posts, with all connection details and footings provided wherever required.

SITE SUPERVISION

Our staff has the knowledge and experience required to provide skillful supervision during construction projects. Pre-agreed site inspections can be undertaken to ensure that the ongoing build reflects the initial brief and design of the project. They can provide a variety of services in order to reach project goals within your budget and timeline.

OTHER SERVICES

Steel Connection Design for Steel Fabricators

We provide steel connection design and details to steel fabricators for a range of projects, whether it is for a simple beam or multi-storey steel frame.

Checking Engineers

With building refurbishment works becoming ever more popular than selling and buying a larger home, it is inevitable that adjoining owners or property owners seek an independent opinion from another engineer before agreeing to building works which have the potential to affect their properties. This independent engineer is known in the industry as a checking engineer. We offer checking engineering services to adjoining owners advising their party wall surveyors when for example basement work or complex alterations are proposed.
