Our chartered engineers are experienced in carrying out structural inspections and appraisals of existing residential buildings. We are equally experienced in the structural design of most types of new buildings using all common building materials.
Timber framed construction is also becoming more popular as energy conservation becomes more important, and the Building Regulations requirements for insulation become more stringent. We specialise in the design of all types of timber framed building: ranging from traditional hardwood frames utilising posts, beams and trusses, to the more modern systems using softwood/plywood panels commonly used in private and public housing projects.
We also have wide experience in the use of proprietary engineered timber beams and joists and in the design of the “Tradis Structural Insulated Panel” system, which provides U-values well above Building Regulations requirements.
