Structural Calculations


IHD work closely with a fully qualified Structural Engineer and as such are able to provide the Structural Calculations required by Building Control to ensure that your proposed extension/alterations will be structurally stable.

Nearly all projects will require Structural Calculations and these calculations are used to determine the size of beams or steels for openings in walls and size of timbers for roof and floor joists.

The types of projects that will require Structural Calculations include:-

  • Removal of a load bearing internal wall
  • Single storey extensions
  • Two storey extensions
  • Loft conversions
  • Enlarging an opening in an exterior wall
