A structural engineer is necessary for an extension because they can assess the existing structure of the building, identify any problems or weaknesses, and design a new structure that will safely and securely support the new extension. They will also be able to ensure the new extension meets building regulations and local authority standards.
HAC Structure’s engineering team is devoted and committed to providing a design that is both compliant, practical, and efficient for your build project. We strive to offer the best design solutions for each individual project, and our engineers have the experience and knowledge to ensure that the design is safe and reliable. We understand that the project timeline is important to our clients, and so we are proud to offer a turn-around time of two weeks for most projects, depending on the scope.
For structural knock throughs in order to achieve an open plan space, HAC structure will work to ensure that the structural elements are in place to provide safety and securely. This may involve the re moval of existing walls and the installation of new steel beams, lintels or columns. They will also assess the existing structure and advise on any strengthening or modification that may be required, and will develop an appropriate design solution
Working with a collaborative architect and structural engineer can be beneficial because it allows for a more comprehensive approach to a project. Both architects and structural engineers are essential to the design and construction process, and working together allows them to better understand the project goals and ensure that the design and structure are properly balanced. Additionally, this collaborative approach can help to identify potential issues early on and come up with solutions, saving time and money. Ultimately, a collaborative approach results in a better outcome for the project.
