New Buildings

We design the structure of new residential, commercial and industrial buildings, including masonry, modern timber frame, traditional oak frame, reinforced concrete and steel framed structures.  

We produce comprehensive structural engineering calculations for checking by Building Control and clear design details for use by your contractor. We pride ourselves on producing thorough and well considered designs which minimise problems and delays during construction and therefore represent excellent value for money.

On appointment we will work closely with your Architect to provide a structural engineering solution that is sympathetic to your budget and requirements. If you do not currently have an Architect we can refer you to several that we work with on a regular basis for your consideration.

 


SERVICES

Our services are flexible to suit your budget and requirements and we can discuss these with you before submitting our fee proposal. However, we find that most of the structural engineering services that we provide fall into one of the following categories:


1. Preliminary Feasibility Advice

You may just need some advice on the engineering feasibility of your proposal and are not yet ready to commission detailed design work. If so we can meet you at our offices or on site to discuss your proposals, assess their engineering feasibility and give verbal advice. Our fee for this service is £150 plus VAT and includes up to 3 hours of our time, including any time spent travelling from our offices near Ashford, Kent. 


2. Design 

If you have already commissioned an Architect or other designer please send a copy of their drawings to us at contact@epsdesign.co.uk . We will then provide you with a detailed fixed price quotation for the structural engineering design, provided that the drawings contain sufficient information for us to be able to quantify the design work needed.


  

WHAT WE DON’T DO

We specialise in engineering design and a range of project management, surveying and detailing services. We have knowledge of many other areas of construction but are not experts in them. If you need advice in any of the following areas, you will need to seek advice from an appropriate professional. Please refer to us if you need assistance as we may have contacts we can refer you to.

· architecture and all non-structural aspects of the Building Regulations

· geotechnical engineering and complex ground investigations

· the Party Wall Act

· general building surveys for house sale or purchase

· asbestos

· cost estimating
