General Structural Inspection (GSI) is carried out on all load-bearing elements of the property. The surrounding site and any other factors that might affect the overall stability of the structure are considered.
Specific Structural Inspection (SSI) is carried out for specific defects or locations on a property to identify a structural defect/problem such as subsidence, damage caused by removed walls, etc.
Structural Design and Calculations:
We can make structural design and calculations on beams, foundations, loft conversions, extensions, etc.
Architectural Services and Design
3D Visualisation and Drawings:
We can prepare 3D visual drawings for the existing building or structures and we can show any alterations on the property on 3D models. This helps the clients to see the application of the ideas on a real 3D computer model and makes the alterations feasible.
Architectural Design and Drawings (CAD -Computer-Aided Drawings-):
We can prepare architectural drawings, details in a 2D or 3D environment. This includes existing buildings and any new projects, developments or alterations.
This is the visualisation of your design or ideas. We also give advice during the design. You can see your design on an existing floor via a visual environment and drawings.
Extensions or Conversions
We give services for alteration of the existing buildings or extensions or conversions. The process for alterations is as follows:
Building Regulations drawings
After these processes, you will then have to commission a Building Control Officer to review the construction phase.
