Each and every building is unique and it is our aim to fully understand the way it can and will work structurally. A good structural engineer is essential to get the most out of your development, whether it is a domestic extension or loft conversion, or a large commercial development. A successful structural design must always ensure that the building will safely stand and function without any deflections that may cause structural fatigue, cracks or failure of fixtures and fittings. The design must account for movement and forces caused by temperature fluctuations, loads and cracking. It must also make sure that the construction method is practicable within accepted material tolerances. It should allow the architectural design to work, the mechanical, electrical services (lighting, heating, ventilation, electrical fittings, etc.,) to fit within.
