Structural Engineering Services
Our experienced engineers provide structural design services across the residential and commercial sectors. Our designs include reports, calculations and drawings that comply with UK Building Regulations to meet the structural needs of our clients.
We can carry-out site inspections to assess the integrity of existing structures and come up with solutions to either mitigate issues or provide solutions for new construction. Our site inspections also include carrying-out surveys of the building (where applicable), which is used in the design process.
