Structural Engineering

Structural alterations constitute significant and fundamental change in the configuration or framework of a building. Over the years we have worked for local authorities, large national contractors, M.O.D. and the NHS. Our approach to projects involving major structural alterations include detailed methodology to ensure the project is carried out professionally. Through expert communication with structural engineers we ensure that the appropriate propping and support systems are implemented and followed. The detailed planning and relevant information will then pass to our on site engineers who will then accurately follow all necessary drawings, calculations and specifications to ensure the project is carried out correctly, on time, on budget and most of all safely.

What We Cover
