We use our experience to provide bespoke Structural design solutions for a wide range of new build projects, ranging from domestic extensions, to large residential properties, apartment buildings and offices.
Alterations to Existing Buildings
We understand that alterations to existing properties require careful thought and that the best solution is not always the most obvious. We can undertake bespoke design services for all manners of challenging structural alterations, ranging from the removal of an existing load bearing wall, to a complicated reconfiguration of a multi-storey building.
We recognise the need to preserve the fabric of historic and listed buildings and are adept at providing unobtrusive structural solutions. We have a wide experience of providing successful, sympathetic refurbishment to buildings of this type, such as the refurbishment of the States Chambers & 8-10 Beresford Street (Victoria Club).
Combining our extensive connections with our Structural Engineering ability we can provide wide ranging advice on complex, one-off Civil Engineering projects. We have successfully delivered numerous infrastructure projects for entities such as Ports of Jersey, Jersey Electricity and The Department for Infrastructure.
We can apply our knowledge of the construction process to undertake Structural feasibility studies for proposed projects, allowing Clients to determine budget costs and giving the confidence that a project is achievable during initial conception. We have successfully provided studies for simple extensions, conversions of historic or listed buildings and for complex projects such as large residential developments, or works at the Jersey General Hospital.
Using our construction experience and Structural Engineering knowledge, we are able to quickly ascertain how an existing structure performs. This enables us to provide structural surveys of existing buildings, whether this be to ascertain defects in the structure, or if required as part of a property purchase.
Through our joint venture with world leading Engineering consultancy Arup, we are able to combine local knowledge with specialist Engineering services to deliver solutions for complex, or unusual projects on the Island, such as the construction of the States Of Jersey Police Headquarters, or the successful stabilisation and sensitive refurbishment of historic maritime structures, such as St. Catherine’s breakwater.
