Why You Need An Engineer To Design Your House?
In a nutshell, if a structure was a human body then the architect would be concerned with the body shape and appearance, and the Structural Engineer would be concerned with the skeleton and sinews.
Structural Engineer is a key part of the design and construction team, who make a difference and shape the built environment.
Who Is A Structural Engineer?
A Structural Engineer is a professional who has the sufficient credentials to give advice on structural issues and provide the necessary calculations to ensure buildings are safely built (i.e. they do not sink, collapse, warp etc.).
It is widely accepted that;
“Structural engineering is about ensuring a structure is capable of standing up and can withstand the pressures of use that the building is subjected to – including the potential weather conditions for the locality”
The Engineer will be able to advise on the safe removal of walls, elements, chimney breasts etc. They will also cover groundwork issues like foundation types and solutions for refurbishing old damaged buildings including structural retrofitting, damage assessments and strengthening proposals.
What Does The Structural Engineer Do?
Structural engineer is concerned with designing the foundations and framing of buildings so that it can withstand the forces from the use of the building and also from the environment such as wind, rain and earthquake.
