Structural Basements

Our engineers design many structural basement projects and have a vast knowledge of experience in this field. We design multi-depth basements, as well a vast array of single depth projects.

Furthermore, our structural engineers’ design both new and retrofit basements for either commercial or domestic use including basements under gardens. Structural engineering basement services include site investigation reports, trial holes, party wall monitoring and site visits throughout the construction phase. We have experience in various underpinning methods, including those in difficult ground conditions. Our work also involves properties that have experienced movement and require the traditional underpinning.

There are numerous ways to design a basement while our structural engineers evaluate the ease of construction. Also, the feasibility and cost of the project will get taken into account. A carefully and well-thought-out structural basement design can limit expenditure in build costs. Consequently, the project time frame can be condensed as well.


We offer a free quote service where you can call or message us to discuss your ideas so we can answer any queries you have, by appointment, we visit your property and from there draw up a quote.
