We have recently been chosen as the lead structural engineers to carry out the full refurbishment and new build designs. The design includes the addition of a new floor within the existing grade listed church. The structural engineering also encompasses a new large glass box extension that has also includes a cantilevered first floor area.
We were instructed as the lead design structural engineer to carry out an assessment on the existing 2 storey building to determine if an existing floor could be added.
This design analysis included the redesigns of the foundations and structural assess meant of the existing masonry/steel frame to ascertain the spare loading capacities.
Once this was carried out we then completed a full structural design of a steel portal frame that could then be seated over the existing building.
