Site visits by an Engineer is a very important part of the process where the client, Architect, Contractor and Engineer can meet and discuss the feasibility of the project. This is essential for most constructions and especially for alterations of existing building. The Engineer will check the following:
- Alignment of floor joists (analyse which wall carries the weight of the floor)
- Roof design – if it is coral ties roof, purlin roof….
- Quality of masonry – various material may carry different load
- Location – affecting soil type and winds on the strucutre
We use modern tools to lower the impact on the building by having laser measures & spirit levels, endoscopes and detectors for different materials. We are able to provide accurate analysis without stripping plaster and ceiling.
