Structural Engineers (Hampshire & Bath)

Structural Engineering

You have a vision for your construction project and it is our job to help you make that vision a reality, whilst creating safe, stable and secure structures that will stand the test of time.

Our chartered structural engineers provide advice, consultancy, surveying and design services in line with the professional standards for which AWA Engineers is well known and trusted.

What AWA do

AWA Engineers boasts a team of chartered structural engineers with over 30 years experience of working on a wide variety of projects. It is that experience which gives new clients the confidence that their project is in safe hands whilst also keeping our many repeat clients coming back every time they embark on a new project or need structural advice.

As structural consultants we can 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 also 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, 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 project?

New buildings will require input from a structural engineer or structural designer 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 in order to avoid the need to make corrective changes later.

If you are planning a renovation, before you start tearing down walls or adding an extension, it’s important to make sure that your plans are safe. A structural engineer can help you identify potential risks and hazards associated with your renovation plans before you start work. They also provide vital calculations to ensure that your home will remain stable and strong during and 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 a catastrophic collapse.
