Considering some alterations to your residence?

There are structural engineer requirements for your alterations.

Whether you already have architectural plans from a draftsman or you are in the preliminary stage of considering your options for alterations for your residence, it’s best to get some input from a structural engineer early in the process.

There are structural engineer requirements for your alterations.

For example, it is very common for residential homeowners to want new openings in walls or to remove walls altogether. If the wall is a load bearing wall or a bracing wall then structural considerations need to be dealt with. Replacement structural bracing needs to be provided to adequately deal with the Wind Loads to the residence. In addition, each side of a bigger span, typically in excess of 4 metres in width, need to be supported with a footing and not just the typical thin 100mm slab on ground. The result of inadequate support to each side of big span opening is ongoing movement and cracking due to excessive load and lowering of the slab on ground. That’s not helpful to anyone.

Contact the engineer to arrange an inspection so that you can make yourself aware of the structural requirements for the options you are considering for alteration of the residence.
