Structural Design and Calculations
If you are involved with an alteration to an existing building, such as a loft, or roof conversion or extension, or perhaps the design of a new structure, then you may require structural calculations. A Structural Engineer or Civil Engineer can assist with the design of structural elements such as beams (RSJ’s), columns, suspended floors, retaining walls, or the roof and most importantly the foundations.
It is paramount that a structure be fully considered in terms of its strength by assessing its weight and use, whilst also looking at cost, deflection and stability. The engineer should give due consideration to economy and optimum the size of beams and other essential structural supports, ensuring these are correctly contained within the proposed architectural arrangement.
