Professional Engineering Response

Structural Renovation

These projects reflect the wide experience we have accumulated in investigative surveys and the knowledgeable application of conservation techniques. They illustrate our ability to sympathetically adapt old buildings for new use.

At LeeMcCullough we identify, assess and innovatively address the requirements in relation to the renovation of existing buildings, and deliver our solutions on time and in a cost efficient manner. We achieve this objective by addressing the key issues of strength, stability and durability of the structure. We have exceptional, perhaps unique, experience in the four critical phases of a renovation project i.e.

  • A careful, thorough, structural survey
  • A detailed appraisal of the current structural condition
  • The exploration, with the project team of the structural options
  • The preparation of final design and construction details

We commonly address issues of internal planning, incorporation of building services, the condition of timber, cast iron and steel, preservation, conservation and restoration. Our aim is to ensure that, on completion, the old and new merge successfully and economically into a building which meets the clients needs and provides value and satisfaction in its new use.

Our work in this area has resolved many common and specialist restoration and renovation issues including :-

  • Strengthening historical structural members to carry increased loading
  • Restoring degraded timber, brick and stone structural elements
  • Introducing flood control measures into inadequate drainage systems
  • Innovatively incorporating modern building services into historic buildings
  • Ensuring continuity of building function with minimum disruption

When it comes to renovation and refurbishment anticipating and resolving engineering issues early and effectively is the key to a successful outcome
