Simple alterations and extensions can often affect the main house structure. We can help in the planning stages, to advise on load bearing and bracing structures that might be affected and how this can be altered efficiently to achieve your extra space and aesthetic requirements.
If you are changing the layout of your house or extending it, you might need a structural engineer to help ensure the existing structure is not weakened by the proposed work.
Richards Consulting Engineers can inspect your property before you begin. We can identify the critical structural elements (i.e. load bearing and bracing walls) and how they could be altered to meet your requirements. Early involvement from a structural engineer will help you and your designer achieve a safe and cost-effective solution.
