We recently carried out the design of a steel frame over a river that was required to give stability to an existing brick retaining wall that was in turn supporting a chemical plant.
The new stabilising steel frame also included the design of the associated thrust blocks that were needed to withstand horizontal slippage of the new frame and existing dilapidated brick retaining wall.
We were instructed as the structural engineer on a domestic extension which included removal of numerous internal walls. This meant that steel beams, masonry pier and wall designs were required to achieve building regulation approval. The design also cater for underpinning to the existing dwelling to facilitate the design of a basement and sunken terrace area.
We were chosen as the consultant structural engineers to carry out all the steel work design and calculations to allow an expanding deli to convert the adjoining premises into one large deli/cafe space. The design included all the steel work, masonry pier checks and piled foundation designs. The design also catered for all the existing loading from the office block over. The work also involved supplementary reports to gain party wall agreements with all the adjoining neighbors.
