Alterations to Existing Structures

It is not uncommon for buildings to require changes, whether it be for modernisation, a change of use or a need for additional space. Alterations to structures may include the addition of an extension, strengthening and support steel, structural adjustments and changes of use alterations. 

Safe Design

Our structural engineers will strive to understand the way the building was originally constructed in order to design safe and appropriate adjustments and to ensure that the existing building structures will not be overloaded by the work being carried out or the changes implemented. 

It is quite common for building owners to be unable to provide the original building plans so we can carry out site investigations to establish what is the best way to proceed.
