Structural Engineer London
– House Extension Structural Engineering Services
To see through the success of any house extension London project, structural property calculations are required to plan out the project’s foundations correctly – a critical first step that only a professional structural engineer London is capable of completing.
Once you have successfully acquired planning approval, structural engineering services are required during the building regulation drawing phase, ensuring the entire team of architects, designers, builders, and engineers are on the same page, working with the same calculations. The process details key information such as:
- Foundational measurements
- Materials required
- Structural works involved
- Any potential health and safety risks so that they can be addressed early on
No matter what kind of London home extension project you have in mind, our highly reliable and cost-effective structural engineering services are here to ensure the structural calculations are entirely in line with current requirements. As you might imagine, this is a very critical first step before kicking off any home extension London project. When you’re collaborating with a professional extension structural engineer with years of experience, you already know that half your work is done.
Extension Structural Engineer
- How does it work?
Determining when you need a structural engineer in London
With some home extensions, you need Planning Permission – but if you don’t, then you can appoint a structural engineer right away. On the other hand, if approval on planning permission is required from the Local Council, you must first wait for that approval. We will act as your agent to ensure that you get it at the earliest. At this stage, our designer will discuss options with you to appoint one of our trusted structural engineers in London, along with any technical architects and party wall surveyors you might require.
The cost of structural engineering services
Working with the right structural engineer in London is, of course, critical to your project’s success, but we’ve made this process simple for homeowners. We will send your final and approved plans to our top structural engineers, and, as all the process is in_house, we can offer the most competitive price.
Structural engineering site survey
Once your structural engineer has been allocated, he will visit your premises to conduct an integrity check on the construction – e.g. checking the state of the foundations, exterior walls, load-bearing walls and overall infrastructure. He will double-check all the measurements to ensure that any future drawings which may be needed are fully accurate.
Structural engineering drawings & calculations
Once the relevant information and specifications have been gathered from your premises, your structural engineer will produce the required drawings and calculations to be submitted to Building Control.
Document checking & final drawings submission
The structural engineering drawings and calculations will be done simultaneously along with the building regulations drawings. We will undertake all the relevant checks to ensure that these documents correlate and have the appropriate information required by Building Control. The detailed drawing pack will be run through you for a final check – any revisions required will be done by our in-house specialists.
