Structured Environment has extensive experience in the design of all building types and sizes in the UK, Japan, and worldwide. The practice has so far designed the structures for approximately 650 buildings. Many of our buildings have received prizes.
We have worked with a large number of architects and services engineers in successful collaborations. From the early scheme design stage through detailed design, permit process, and construction supervision, we are able to provide a service tailored to the needs of each project. For smaller projects we are able to work directly with the client, and if required can also provide architectural services.
Conversions and refurbishments
We have carried out structural design for a large number of loft conversions, basements, and extensions, particularly in the London area. For smaller projects we are also able to offer architectural and planning services.
We realize that undertaking a residential conversion can be a large commitment, and if doing this for the first time may bring considerable anxiety. We endeavor to support our clients at each stage of the process through meetings and regular communication to make the undertaking as stress-free as possible.
Many clients require a structural inspection of a property prior to purchase or sale for mortgage purposes, or for due diligence. Having an inspection report showing a clean bill of structural health can also result in savings on insurance premiums, the reductions often being many times greater than the cost of the inspection. For the buyer, if defects are present in a prospective purchase then having these clarified and their repair costed can enable reductions to be achieved on the price of a property.
Party wall surveys
When undertaking conversion or extension work close to a neighboring property boundary it will often be necessary to make a party wall award. We have acted as party wall surveyor for a large number of clients in London and we pride ourselves in offering a fast and economic service.
