We have a comprehensive understanding of the construction of existing buildings, whether they are historical or recent. This enables us to undertake structural designs to existing buildings in a sensitive and informed manner.

For the domestic house owner who requires assistance with removing a wall or two, we have a systematic approach, which is outlined in detail in Sketch News  - ” Load Bearing Walls To Be or Not To Be”.

Our approach starts with acquiring, if available, archive record drawings of the building construction followed by intrusive structural investigations to validate the form and nature of the building structure.

Once, the nature of the existing structure has been established we then work with the design team to produce innovative, economical and practical structural solutions to accord with the client’s brief and expectations.
