Are you in a dire need to construct a new building, basement, extension, loft conversions, party wall monitoring, and as well as renovations of old structures? But you are literarily confused about the next step to take, it is always imperative you seek an expert advice to put you through, you need not worry, however seeking expert advice is the most considerate thing to do. Construction does not seem simple and easy as people speculate, mostly by individuals who have little or no knowledge of the construction industry.
Construction can be very an expensive and challenging process even though it is a nice investment to venture in. Without receiving expert advice from a knowledgeable structural engineer your construction may end up in complete failure. It is of great importance to notify a construction company of the project on time about 6 weeks before the commencement of the project. This will allow the construction company take the necessary structural calculations or structural survey costs to ascertain the money required. So that they can be enough time for the team to design, plan and also to get materials needed on ground before the show time.

Structural Home Renovations

Posted on August 5, 2017 by Admin

Structural Home Renovations

Every year, thousands of London home owners undertake successful home renovation/extension projects. Some are even motivated by the need for an extension, or save on moving costs. Others just want to renovate their older homes to meet up with the latest trend in home construction. And in some cases, homeowners decide to renovate in order to boost their property’s value ahead of a sale. For investors, renovating or extension may be an opportunity to improve the value of their asset and make more profit on sale, or it may mean being able to receive a higher rent.

If you are thinking of basement excavation or design or conversion, loft conversion, extension, home renovation and wall removal, you need to be sure that it is stable and safe. To carry out this structural home renovation, you will need to consult with a structural engineer.

What You Need to Know about Structural Engineers and Home renovation or Extension

A structural engineer is crucial for any home renovation project. This is due to the important role they play. Structural engineers ensure that the home renovation or extension is structurally sound and this is done by designing all the structural elements to be stable and sound, such as load bearing walls, foundations, footings and beams. Also, they will first supervise the actual building before the renovation or extension in order to be certain that any necessary corrections are carried out and also to ensure that the building is done to standard. They can order work to be re-done or fixed if there is a need for that. Structural engineers will work on something as simple as a garage, basement conversion, right through to a large second storey addition or even more complicated home renovation.

Generally, the structural engineer will work hand in hand with other professionals like your architect and other engineers, particularly during the design phase. You can hire the structural engineer on your own, but if your home renovation or extension is being done by a company that specializes in home renovation, they will definitely have a structural engineer, or arrange for a structural engineer themselves.

Structural Home Renovation Protects the Homeowner

One of the major reasons why building codes have been written is to protect homeowners from substandard structural work. This is because badly done structural home renovation (and new construction) puts the homeowner’s life and possession at risk. This implies that badly done structural home renovation can easily collapse, cause great injury to people in the home and also damage their house & possessions.

On the other side, when structural home renovation is done well, it can actually improve a house. These improvements may include a more open and spacious interior; a more useable floor plan; brighter and more visually appealing interiors and exterior spaces; a more unified; more living space and coherent appearance and greatly improved functionality.
