Civil and Structural Design
Our design expertise encompasses all conventionally adopted materials using recognised and advanced techniques to provide design calculations, computer aided drawings and specifications.
We regularly design projects of reinforced concrete and steel framed construction, including composite constructions, along with masonry, timber, structural aluminium and glass construction.
Structural and subsidence inspection and reports
We undertake structural inspections for both the private and commercial sectors. This includes structural reports for the purposes of possible defects found within surveys carried out on domestic properties for mortgage approvals.
Surveys are also carried out to advice on any possible structural problems and implications when considering the refurbishment of buildings.
This ranges from foundation design checks for existing developments to proposed designs for the full spectrum of building types, including all types of raft and piled foundations, including retaining wall designs with incorporate basement conversions.
Full drainage designs are carried out for both residential and commercial projects, including any water retention needs.
Underpinning takes many forms from traditional mass concrete underpinning to RC concrete beams or slabs and piled solutions.
Refurbishment and Conservation Work
We have considerable experience in the refurbishment and or conservation of historic buildings. Designs normally include measures to remedy current defects and strengthen the building as necessary for its proposed use.
This includes all methods of retaining structures that are to be altered for re-development.
Building and planning applications
We carry out all the necessary calculations, constructional drawing packages and application forms to ensure full planning and building regulation approval is granted
