Depending on the scale and intricacy of your project, you may necessitate building regulations drawings and consent, alongside structural engineering assessments. Structural engineering evaluations encompass an assessment of the load-bearing capacity, strength, dimensions, and shape of a structure. This process includes scrutinizing a structure's capability to withstand forces stemming from wind and seismic activities. Calculations entail determining the suitable materials and the strength of components for a specific structure, while analyzing the safety and integrity of the design.
To provide a quote and generate precise structural engineering calculations, we rely on your architect's drawings that depict the design. The architectural design conceptualized during the planning phase plays a crucial role in defining the specifics needed for the structural engineering calculations. The pricing for these calculations is contingent upon the scale and intricacy of the design. A sizable and straightforward project might incur lower costs, while a compact yet intricate project could be relatively more expensive.
We highly advise against making payments for structural engineering calculations until you secure planning approval for your project. Planning authorization is not assured, and it's prudent to avoid incurring costs for structural engineering calculations in case planning permission is denied. Moreover, if alterations to your design occur during the planning phase, you'll require updated building regulations drawings and revised structural engineering calculations, entailing additional expenses.
