Structural Alterations are required when buildings are being changed. This includes the addition of extensions, partial demolitions, structural alterations and changes of use. We work closely alongside structural engineers and temporary works engineers who understand the way the building was originally built in order to design safe and sympathetic methods of alterations and temporary supports of the structure. This ensures that all required checks are carried out to ensure that the elements of the building will not be overloaded by the new works or use.
Few building owners are able to supply the original construction plans. With traditional building types it is usually fairly simple to understand the structure but with more modern buildings this becomes more difficult and site investigations may be needed.
Our sectors include commercial, residential, industrial, schools, hospitals, food factories and retail space, which often includes retained facades. We offer innovative solutions to carrying out these works in all types of environments.
