We support and back up assessment and construction projects to gain credibility and approval from public or private entities.
Our field of expertise covers structural design, assessments and historical structures for both buildings and light infrastructure including railway and highway footbridges.
We aim to reduce conveyancing delays while gaining a full understanding of the condition of a building or site.
A generic RICS inspection, even if called 'Full Structural Survey' is only the first step in fully clarifying the extent of potential structural issues. They are not valid to clear structural issues.
Our team can open up foundations, expose structural elements, or scan concrete reinforced structures as required. Not all our team members are chartered structural engineers, obviously.
The production of reports for agricultural buildings being developed into residential dwellings, particularly multi-bay slender agricultural units, requires a full numerical assessment and a calculations report, as no-one can ascertain such buildings' structural condition by merely visually inspecting them.
A qualified structural engineer can help you with independent advice to support your case. Part 35 Compliant Expert Witness Reports. Unqualified technical advisors may render null any claim or agreement.
Note that the issue of a building regulations approval is equivalent to certifying that the design follows basic normative only and does not provide any liabilities towards building or project owners. Non qualified structural engineers will most likely have zero access to PI or Professional Indemnity insurance as the caveats from the insurance companies will contain clauses on specific structural engineering qualifications and experience.
Our specialist equipment includes concrete resistivity measurement tools, Schmidt Hammers, GPRs, concrete carbonate testing and a PS-300 Ferro-scanner.
Our latest area of interest: Movement Sensors. What is the point in expending thousands in geotech investigations for your seaside property, when the real source of the cracks in your building is the new double decker bus route?
From full design to independent checks. Production of liability certificates and endorsement.
Temporary work designs can be as intricate as the permanent structure they serve, and in most cases, worth an independent professional review. How many millions are lost every year in failed or delayed projects lacking essential peer reviews? Are you willing to expose your company to that risk? Independent checks have been our specialist activity for years, including temporary works.
Our team are constantly following the latest structural safety bulletins and updates.
