What AWA do
Have confidence your project is in safe hands with AWA Engineers. As structural consultants, we help you understand both the potential and the limitations of proposed new builds, extensions or modifications at an early stage allowing you to make sound project decisions.
Structural design is a key aspect of our service as you want to ensure your finished project isn’t just safe but looks good. Over the years we have worked with clients and design teams to deliver eye catching, award winning buildings.
What is Structural Engineering?
Structural engineering is the art and science of planning and designing stable building structures. Structural engineers are responsible for making sure that, once complete, a proposed building will be secure and structurally sound to prioritise the safety of all who will use it.
Structural engineers collaborate with architects, contractors, and building services engineers, overseeing the safe erection of structures of all proportions and for all purposes. Structural engineering requires expert knowledge of structural design, building materials, and the impact of environmental factors and other hazards.
It is our responsibility to account for a structure’s stresses and pressures to ensure its longevity. They must also ensure that structures will not move too much, vibrate or worsen throughout their lifetime, ensuring that buildings will perform throughout their lives.
Essentially, we ensure your buildings don’t fall down.
Do you need a Structural Engineer for your Portsmouth project?
If you’re planning a renovation or to build a new structure in Portsmouth or the surrounding areas, we can help ensure your construction is structurally sound.
New buildings require input from a structural design engineer to ensure that the finished project is safe and secure. It is more cost effective to engage a professional structural consultant at an early stage, avoiding the need to make corrective changes later down the line.
If you are planning a renovation, a structural engineer can help you identify potential risks and issues associated with your renovation plans before you start work. They also provide calculations to justify your home will remain stable and strong after the renovation process.
If you’re planning on making any structural changes to your home, consult a structural engineer first. It could be the difference between a successful renovation and structural issues.
