In many cases whether it be a new build, an extension to an existing property, or a removal of a wall, you are likely to require a Structural Engineer.
What does a Structural Engineer do?
A Structural Engineer ensures that buildings, bridges and machines are strong enough to withstand all kinds of stresses and strains. Often working alongside architects they create and maintain all kinds of structures from houses to skyscrapers and sports stadiums to offshore wind turbines.
They are the backbone to any construction project as it’s the Structural Engineer that calculates the resistance to loads for the property or area, the materials suitable to achieve the design and the overall design concept of the property including elements such as beams, columns, floors and foundations.
