Our team at GL Services are fully trained and qualified chartered civil and structural engineers with many years of design experience working on building projects in and around the London area.
We cover all aspects of structural engineering designs including property renovations, new builds, temporary works and residential conversions such as building extensions, loft conversions and chimney removals.
We understand that you want your building project to be structurally sound, use the correct construction materials for the job and come in on time and budget. This is achievable when you have a set of detailed, professional design plans that meet with local planning rules and restrictions in your area of London.
The importance of getting your project plans right
As structural engineers are responsible for designing just about every man-made building in the world today, it is our job to ensure that your design plan concepts can be turned into reality.
We are here to help you ensure your building project will be safe for you to use and are structurally sound to withstand the extra weight-bearing loads that adding an extension or taking out internal walls can place on your building.
By working with us on your initial plan to improve your London home, you will be reassured that any building work you have done will meet with all the local and national building regulations that are in place to keep people safe.
All of our design plans, right from our initial sketches to our final designs using CAD technology will ensure that your building project will comply with all legal, environmental, and health and safety regulations, as well as work within your budget limits.
How we can help plan your project
Our dedicated team at GL Design Services offer a comprehensive design service that includes:
- Checking stresses and loads on your structure
- Interacting with your team as needed as the project progresses
- Preparing tenders
- Using CAD software to create detailed plans
- Writing up detailed measurement and material reports for supporting structures
If you are planning to make significant changes to your home, the chances are that you will need the help of a structural engineer, such as from GL Design Services. No matter whether you plan to take down existing internal walls, or add an extension to your home, we can calculate the safest and most cost-effective way to get your work done.
It is our job to ensure the structural integrity of your completed works. Working with us right from the initial concept design stage will save you a lot of time and money not having to do a course correction once your renovation work has started should you encounter any serious issues.
Our structural engineer will:
- Calculate the weight on an extension
- Choose the right beam or column size
- Design the foundations
- Draw the overall structure of a project
- Ensure the overall project is technically viable
