Working closely with architects, draughtpersons and builders for many years, we are experienced in engineering your design to reality. With many years of experience we have designed many different structural forms to suit requirements. We have designed commercial, residential – multiunit and single townhouses.
We are experienced in new buildings and alterations & additions including rooftop and basement additions and the attendant support issues including how to support additional floors using the geometry and capacity of the existing building minimising the amount of rebuilding required of existing floors. Maximising the building potential within the constraints of the district plans often without neighbours approval leads to envelopes requiring cantilever or other support.
Seismic upgrades for earthquake prone buildings require at least 34% of current standard. Alterations over a percentage of building value trigger upgrade then. There are initial and detailed structural assessments (IEP ISA DSA), Change of use requires as far as reasonably practicable compliance to current building standard. See us for:
