Is your structure safe?

Based in Staines, Structural engineering services work with clients specialising in creating reliable practical structural designs & calculations across London, as much as surrounding counties. Our structural engineers work with different building types while drawing structural calculations for an extensive variety of purposes. This includes swimming pools, basements, loft conversions, extensions, new build homes and commercial projects.

Structural Surveys

A full structural survey is the most comprehensive type of building surveys. Structural Engineering Services will carry out a detailed structural survey of the property from top to bottom. In this structural inspection, we will look at all aspects of the building structure (for example: the types of materials used, the condition of the roof, the state of the foundations and the integrity of the walls).

When carrying out a structural survey, our structural surveyors will actively search for potential problems and building defects – even if they are not immediately obvious! Once the survey has been completed, you’ll receive a detailed structural survey report which will identify any problems found.

What other areas does a structural survey look at?
In addition to looking at the design and construction of the property, a structural survey will pick up a wide range of property related problems such as:

• Damaged or removed lintels

• Damaged or removed lintels

• If any supporting walls have been altered or moved

• Any DIY “improvements” which have been carried out without the necessary planning permission

• Presence of hazardous materials (e.g. asbestos) that may need to be professionally removed

• Damp related issues such as dry rot or rising damp

• Evidence of woodworm or other insect infestations

• Problems with the roof

• Rotten or damaged window frames

• Damage to brick or stonework (e.g. frost damage)

• Evidence of subsidence or land-slip

• Poor plumbing, electrical work or insulation

• Possible areas of concern (e.g. party wall issues)
