Structural Calculations

English Consulting Engineers will provide the structural calculations and designs you need to make your project a reality. We carry out concrete, masonry, steel and timber design based on the project brief requirements. Accurate and comprehensive structural calculations are essential for ensuring the safety and stability of any building, and are a critical factor in the approval of any construction project by local building authorities.

We design all elements of the works including beams, columns, walls, floors and foundations. They are an important part of the design process for any construction project, as they ensure that the structure will be able to safely support the loads and forces it will be subjected to, such as the weight of the building, wind and snow.

Calculations are carried our in accordance with the Eurocodes and UK National Annexes and can be submitted to the Building Contol. Calculations can range from the design of one-off structural elements such as a load bearing beam to a complete set of calculations for a building.

Do I need structural calculations?

The requirement for structural calculations depends on the nature of the works being undertaken. If works are being carried out that involve structural alterations or may affect the structural integrity of the building then structural calculations will be required. These are submitted to Building Control who must be informed of any structural alterations and grant approval for such work to be carried out. 

Non structural alterations such as the removal of a non load bearing wall require structural calculations. If you are unsure if the works you are carrying out are structural in nature English Consulting Engineers are at hand to offer free advice.

I’ve had a fantastic experience with James at ECE. He conducted a building survey for me which was very thorough and professional. Special thanks for his helpfulness to my many follow up questions. I will be sure to use ECE in the future.

If you need professional, effective conveyancing support, are looking for an efficient/speedy service and great value for money look no further than ECE.

We will definitely be using James/ECE again for our personal and business needs.

A lovely, pleasant experience. We reached out to James as a recommendation by our estate agent for being the local expert on the Southfield properties, especially on the grid. Contacting James was effortless with clear and quick communication. We asked for a survey to be completed with an immediate and a future-planning perspective. After securing the time for the survey James made a curtesy call to talk through his findings ahead of the report being available. This was really helpful as it gave immediate reassurance and an opportunity to ask questions in real-time. I would recommend James to anyone looking for a structural engineer in the SW area. Thank you, James!
Alya Gutnikova

Jenni Spargo

James was responsive, quick and very knowledgeable. He promptly delivered our structural report which was detailed and clesrly addressed all the issues on which we wanted clarification. Would definitely go through James for future projects!
Sarah Collier

James came to do an inspection on an internal wall to see if it was structural as well as provide drawings for the new layout. He was super friendly, very efficient and the drawings were just what I needed. Would fully recommend!
Natasha Sandars

James took the time to understand our requirements fully and came up with a couple of options to meet these. Good communication throughout and did what did said he would do.
Heather Niven
James helped us with a structural issue investigation on a property we are looking to buy. Definitely recommend.
- Alexios Papakonstantinou
James was brilliant at turning round our plans quickly as requested and was on hand to discuss all queries and questions for me as a complete reno novice! The level of service was excellent and very fairly priced compared to other quotes I received. Thank you!
- Henni Bateman Williams
We employed James to inspect some internal/external cracks to our property. He was very knowledgeable, easy to talk to and spent nearly two hours at our property. He put us at ease about the problem and listened carefully to what we had to say. He produced a report just two days after his visit. I would definitely recommend him.
- Silvana Riccio
James did an excellent and very thorough survey - nearly 5 hours - of our somewhat lived in, but much loved old (1904) pile. I found his rating system of "3-serious/urgent, 2-not serious/urgent, 1-otherwise Ok", made very helpful, though depressing (we have a lot of 3s) reading. Would definitely use his services again.
- Aidan Magill
James was great. He was very helpful, gave us sound advice and was quick in all comms. Would definitely recommend!
- Oz Osbaldeston
Fantastic service. We had a specific question we need answering and English Consulting Engineers did an extremely thorough assessment and gave us a clear answer. I cannot recommend them enough.
- Sam Shribman
We asked James to do some initial work to assess whether we could extend our property using the existing ground floor structure. James was very responsive and came back to us quickly with what we needed at a reasonable cost.
- Tom & Helen Cadwaladr
Excellent & fast service! As first-time buyers we were keen to move quickly so were looking for a company who could undertake our survey quickly and would be responsive to our needs and questions. ECE went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable, the communication was clear and the turnaround time of the homebuyers survey was outstanding. 5 star, we will use ECE for all future needs.
- Ekaterina Steube
ECE helped us to start our major renovation project by providing us with fast and accurate calculations necessary to remove a wall in our house and create a large open plan space. James took us through the process step by step, no question was left unanswered which meant there were no surprises, just as we had hoped.

The fact ECE are local was a huge selling point for us as we knew we would get a personal service. Overall we highly recommend ECE and would work with them again in a heartbeat!
