Understanding Structural
Designs & Calculations

Constructing a home extension or loft conversion requires detailed structural designs and calculations. Our team of architects and engineers provides these vital technical drawings aligned with building regulations. We work with highly qualified local architects near you.

Our residential architects in London and local architectural services create structural proposals tailored to your property and planning approval. We handle everything from load-bearing walls and foundations to roof structures.

Our structural engineers for extensions and loft conversions ensure complete compliance for hassle-free approval. With industry-leading technical expertise, let us provide the structural drawings and calculations for your project to get started.

STAGE 1

Complete Planning Phase

Structural Designs and engineer’s calculations are created after you’ve received Planning Permission or a Lawful Development Certificate if you don’t need Planning Permission.

Once you have the relevant planning approvals, your designer will work with our engineer to provide them with all they need to commence the structural proposal.

STAGE 2

Desk-Based Assessment

The next phase involves a thorough desk-based assessment carried out by our engineer. Here, they analyse the current structure of your house alongside your proposal.

Their analysis considers the house's original build, current state, and structural nuances, all while keeping your vision for the project at the forefront.

STAGE 3

Engineer Creates the Drawings and Calculations

With your preferences in mind, the designer incorporates the choice of material for your extension into the construction specifics.

Our team of engineers work meticulously to ensure the materials chosen align perfectly with the overall aesthetic and function of the design.

STAGE 4

Receive Completion Pack

As we approach the culmination of your project, we provide a comprehensive completion pack.

This includes the essential structural and building regulation documents and further details that give you a thorough understanding of the structural proposal.

This pack is vital for both Building Control and the contractors you work with to build the loft conversion or extension.
