A structural engineer, as the name suggests, is an engineer who specialises in the structure of buildings. They determine the strength, load and durability of a building and are a key professional in the construction process when making internal alterations, extensions or Loft conversions. They’re able to assess a building’s safety and will provide specifications and calculations for the design, as well as suggesting building materials.
Structural engineering can play a key part in your home extension project, our structural engineering service in Leeds, Halifax, Bradford and the wider West Yorkshire area offers high quality advice and options, typical for residential engineering design however we can also cater for larger commercial projects. An engineer will provide calculations for loading etc before the build begins. This will ensure the regulations are met efficiently and you receive the required building certificate if any alterations exceed the normal guidance.
This information may also need to be provided to Building Control or, depending on the scale of the renovation, to Planning Officials in order to obtain planning permission.
CK Architectural Leeds provide structural design calculation to support the need for beam’s, roof conversions and foundations.
