If you have a property in Southampton or the surrounding area and are planning a complex extension, like a basement, or a swimming pool then it is never too early to speak to a structural engineer to see what is feasible. Similarly, if you’re planning a new build, or the restoration of a listed building or barn conversion it is a good idea to consult a structural engineer early on in the process.
One way we add value to our residential clients is by helping them understand that a large percentage of the costs of a new build or an extension is in the ground, in the foundations. Getting this right and finding a suitable solution can save significant amounts of time and budget.
Structural Engineers, like ourselves, are vital when it comes to understanding whether you can have the extension, annex, basement or swimming pool you desire. We can complete a feasibility study for your project before you spend money on architects, other consultants, and planning applications – saving you money and heartache in the long run; saving you from falling in love with an expensive architect’s design that is not feasible to build.
