COMMERCIAL STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING SERVICES

New Build Housing Developments

This is where a lot of our expertise and experience lies, and as result, it features prominently in the type of projects we manage.

We offer design and detailing of new housing developments ranging from three properties up to 500 homes. This can include private housing, social housing and apartment block developments, from single storey masonry construction up to eight storey concrete frame buildings

New build office and commercial developments

We can provide the design and detailing for new build offices and commercial sites.
Typically, these developments tend to be steel and concrete framed buildings, with structures either designed as sway or braced frames, allowing for large open floor plans of glazed elevations with minimal structure.

Commercial Structural Surveys

If you’re planning a renovation or conversion project we can undertake a survey to determine the structural form and integrity of your building, ensuring no time or cost is wasted further down the line. To be able to properly survey the structure, we’ll need any finishes such as plasterboard ceilings and floorboards to be removed prior to inspection. We can discuss these details with you beforehand.

Commercial retail & commercial to residential developments

From revamping a shop or bar to converting an old commercial space into accommodation, we are here to help.

There is an enormous amount of commercial space now standing empty, and developers across the UK are transforming buildings into apartments or single homes. Generally, with large open areas, the conversion can be straight forward. However, new holes in floor slabs will need to be designed and, if head height allows, new floors installed. In doing so careful consideration needs to be given to the new loads imposed on the existing foundations and if any partial collapse design requirements may apply.

Our commercial development services include site investigation at the conception stage, design and feasibility studies, calculations and certification of work. You can choose for us to be fully involved at every stage or as a guiding voice as and when you need us.

DOMESTIC STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING SERVICES

Loft Conversions

Need more space? Often a cheaper option than moving is to create more space within the roof of your property. Our services include an initial inspection to advise on the practicalities of converting the loft space and a discussion as to what would be involved. We can also produce a short report that will enable you to discuss costs with your architect or builder before you go ahead. And once you’re happy to proceed, we can provide all the calculations and details for your contractors.

Private house extensions

If you’re a private homeowner looking to extend, having a structural engineer on board can help you avoid potentially costly issues further down the line. Working with you, we can provide advice, calculations and drawings for either single or double storey house extensions.

House Structural Surveys

If you’re embarking on a renovation or conversion project and would like the peace of mind that having a structural engineer can bring, we can undertake a survey to determine the structural form and integrity of your building. To be able to properly survey the structure, we’ll need any finishes such as plasterboard ceilings and floorboards to be removed prior to inspection. We can discuss these details with you beforehand.

Beam design for house renovations

Need more space? Often a cheaper option than moving is to create more space within the roof of your property. Our services include an initial inspection to advise on the practicalities of converting the loft space and a discussion as to what would be involved. We can also produce a short report that will enable you to discuss costs with your architect or builder before you go ahead. And once you’re happy to proceed, we can provide all the calculations and details for your contractors.

Single house self-build projects

If you’re taking on a self-build project, having a good domestic structural engineer on board can make all the difference, particularly if it’s a challenging design, if it has architectural importance or if the logistics of getting materials to the site are complex.

We offer two options on self-build projects. We can either provide calculations and hand sketches for your architect, or we can offer a full engineering package for either you or your contractor to use for the build. We’re also happy to talk you through any questions you may have around the principles of engineering in order for you to gain further knowledge of this aspect of your build.

WORKING WITH OPUS

By managing all clients directly, Nick ensures a friendly, professional and bespoke service.

As and when more resource is needed for a project, Nick has the advantage of being able to bring in additional talented sub consultants to provide further support while Nick still oversees the project. This ensures a continued commitment to excellence and the highest quality outcome.

With engineering there are many different solutions to a single problem. If there are different options, we’ll talk you through each one, advising which could be the most cost effective, paving the way for you to make a fully informed decision.
