How much does our structural engineering service cost?

The cost will vary considerably depending on factors such as the project size, complexity and the number of parties involved. For example, a simple beam design will cost a few hundred pounds, whereas the cost for full refurbishment consisting of a loft conversion, extension and taking out internal load bearing walls can start from one and a half thousand pounds and upwards.

What information do you need to supply a quote?

Full property address, full set of architectural drawings (or floor plans) and project brief. We will then review the information and if anything else is required for us to provide a quote, we will let you know.

What information do you need to do design work?

Usually a full set of architectural drawings (plans, elevations and sections) is a good solid way to start. Other information may be required such as tree reports, soil reports, drainage reports, historic reports such as original drawings etc but these can be discussed individually for each project.

How fast can you give me a quote?

Quotes for domestic projects can be given within a day or two. For larger or more complex projects we may need more time to conclude the assessment.

How fast can you turn around a project?

This is dependent on the size and complexity of a project and on the supply of information from relevant parties. We always try to deliver projects quickly, but timescales will always be discussed.

Typically for a domestic extension/loft conversion for a 2-bedroom house this can take 10 -12 working days from the initial site visit. Structural reports will be concluded within 7 working days following inspection.

Will you carry out a site visit for my project?

Yes, unless dictated otherwise. It is good practice to carry out a site inspection and collect as much information as possible about the project in order to provide the best possible design solution and avoid unknowns that could lead to costly and complicated design and construction process.

How long does the site visit take?

This depends on many factors such as the type and size of the project as well as the extent of issues we need to assess. For example a 3-4 bedroom house will take approximately 1 hour.
