What Does a Structural Engineer Do?

A structural engineer is responsible for the design, analysis, and inspection of structures such as buildings, bridges, and other infrastructure. They use their expertise in mathematics, physics, and engineering principles to ensure that structures are safe, functional, and able to withstand the forces they will be subjected to.

Structural Analysis and Design

One of the primary responsibilities of a structural design engineer is to analyse and design structures. This involves using computer-aided design (CAD) software to create detailed plans and models of the structure, taking into account factors such as load-bearing capacity, wind and seismic forces, and material strength.

The structural design engineer will also consider the intended use of the structure and any specific requirements or regulations that must be met. They will then use this information to design a structure that is safe, functional, and meets all necessary standards.

The Aval Chartered Structural Engineering team can assist you with all types of structural design requirements for your projects. These include:

  • Education – schools, colleges, universities
  • Industrial – Manufacturing, Distribution and Warehousing, Energy from Waste
  • Residential, Student Accommodation, Hotels, Mixed-use Developments
  • High-rise buildings
  • Hospitals and Laboratories
  • Sports and Leisure – Stadia, Swimming Pools, Sports Halls
  • Fire Stations, Offices
  • Rail infrastructure
  • Building Refurbishments and Change of use
  • Building and Dilapidation Surveys.

Inspection and Assessment

In addition to designing structures, a structural engineer may also be responsible for inspecting existing structures and assessing their condition. This is often necessary when purchasing a property or making significant renovations, as it ensures that the structure is safe and able to support any planned changes.

During an inspection, the structural engineer will look for any signs of damage, deterioration, or structural issues that could compromise the safety or stability of the structure. They will then provide a detailed report outlining their findings and any recommended repairs or improvements.

Why Do You Need a Structural Engineer?

There are several reasons why you may need the services of a structural engineer. Some of the most common include:

Building a New Home or Other Buildings

If you are planning to build a new home or other buildings, a structural deisgn engineer will be essential in ensuring that the design is safe and structurally sound. We will work closely with your architect to create detailed plans and models that meet all necessary regulations and standards.

Making Significant Renovations

If you are planning to make significant renovations to your existing property, a structural design expert can help ensure that the changes will not compromise the structural integrity of the building. They will assess the existing structure and provide recommendations for any necessary reinforcements or modifications.

Purchasing a Property

When purchasing a property, it is essential to ensure that the structure is safe and in good condition. A structural design expert can conduct a thorough inspection and provide a detailed report outlining any issues or concerns that may affect the safety or stability of the building.

Meeting Building Regulations

In the UK, all new buildings and significant renovations must meet building regulations to ensure the safety and welfare of occupants. A structural engineer can help ensure that your project meets all necessary regulations and standards, avoiding any potential legal issues or delays.

How to Find a Structural Engineer in the UK

Finding a reputable structural engineer near you requires some research. Start by asking for recommendations from friends, family, or professionals in the construction industry. Online directories and review sites can also be helpful.

Once you have a list of potential engineers, vet their credentials. Check their educational background, licensing, and professional affiliations. Look for engineers who specialise in the type of project you’re undertaking.

How Much Does a Structural Engineer Cost?

We are often asked, ‘How much does a structural engineer cost?’. The cost of hiring a structural engineer can vary widely depending on the complexity of the project and the engineer’s level of expertise. For a simple home inspection, you might expect to pay a few hundred pounds. However, for a large commercial project, the cost could run into the thousands.

Factors that can influence the cost include the size and complexity of the project, the engineer’s hourly rate, and the location of the project. Aval chartered structural engineers provide a nationwide service, so we provide full UK coverage.

Remember, while cost is an important consideration, it’s also crucial to ensure that the engineer you hire has the necessary qualifications and experience.
