We provide all Structural Calculations required by your Building Control department for your loft conversion, house extension, garage conversion, annexe, internal alteration or load bearing wall removal.
Why are Structural Calculations needed?
Structural calculations are requested by the Building Control department, to accompany a Building Control application, to show that the structure that you propose to use in your house extension/development is appropriate and will do the job of keeping you and your property structurally sound and safe.
Nearly all projects will require structural calculations. The calculations are used to determine the size of beams or steels for openings in walls, and size of timbers for roof and floor joists.
The types of projects that will require Structural Engineer calculations include;
- removing a load bearing wall
- single storey extensions
- double storey extensions
- loft conversions
- major alterations
- enlarging an opening in an exterior wall
