What We Do

Our Services

We provide a broad range of services from initial conceptual designs and planning reports, to detailed structural models and advisory services.

Planning

We carry out investigations, preliminary designs and provide reports in support of planning applications. The includes Basement Impacts Assessments (BIA) and Construction Method Statements (CMS) that are now becoming a standard requirement for Basement Planning Applications within the London Boroughs, including the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster.

Structural calculations & drawings

We carry out the structural design for new build, extensions, alterations and refurbishments. We use the latest structural software to ensure our designs meet the various design codes and regulations.

Temporary works design

We design Temporary Works (TWs) for both above ground and subterranean (basement) structures. TWs are an important part of the construction process and practical design solutions. They not only benefit the contractor working on site, in terms of health & safety and maintaining access for construction activities, but also can lead to cost savings.

Feasibility studies

Prior to embarking on the design of a project including potentially expensive Planning Applications, it is important to know whether the clients and architects’ visions and objectives can be achieved -particularly if there are challenging site constraints. We carry out feasibility studies that will examine engineering issues and provide the client and architect with the facts to help make more informed decisions about their project.

Engineers reports

Most commonly these relate to defects, cracking and movement that have become apparent to a home owner or highlighted in a surveyor’ ‘homebuyers’ report. The issues typically relate to roof sagging, floor deflections, bulging and leaning walls and ground subsidence.

Structural advisory & checking

We provide advice & checking services to home or asset owners, requiring a ‘second opinion’ on another engineers design. We also check the designs and calculations for local authorities and for adjoining owners in relation to work affecting party walls such as basements.

3D modelling & BIM

More of our projects are now being carried out using 3D modelling which brings projects to life. We are continually investing in software and staff training to offer the most appropriate advice and service for clients requiring BIM.

Extended services

We work closely withother consultants and contractors in related disciplines offering additional services including: ground and building investigations, soil & material testing, ground modelling, flood risk assessments, drainage and highway design and traffic impact assessments.

We provide a personal hands-on approach to our structural engineering service which covers four sectors, basements, residential, commercial & retail and community & leisure.

Basement

Single storey basements to multi-level subterranean structures involving staged construction, complex temporary works and ground movement analysis.

Residential

Domestic projects, high end residential refurbishments through to new build private dwellings, housing developments and high-rise buildings.

Commercial & Retail

Civil & structural engineering design services for commercial and retail refurbishments and new build projects.

Community & Leisure

Engineering design solutions for community & leisure projects for both refurbishment and new build projects.
