Working together as a team is essential for the success of
any project. We offer engineer site visits so the engineer can meet directly
with the architect, client, and contractor to discuss solutions and alterations
for issues as they arise. On each site visit, our engineer will do a thorough
check of the following:
Alignment of floor joists: We’ll analyse which wall carries
the weight of the floor and the most effective orientation of joists. Structural engineer York
Roof design: Whether it’s a traditional cut timber roof using
purlins and hips or a modern system of trusses, we’ll make sure it works
efficiently with the rest of the design.
Quality of masonry: Various materials have different
load-carrying capacities, so regular quality checks are important to prevent
cracking and to guarantee the building’s stability.
Location: Soil type, land gradient, proximity to trees and
rivers, and the local environment all have a big effect on construction. Structural engineer Harrogate
We use modern tools to lower the physical impact on the
building, such as laser measures and spirit levels, endoscopes, and detectors
for different materials. This way we are able to provide accurate analysis
without stripping plaster and ceiling.
