Creating extra space by combining rooms within your property is an attractive proposition that can add value to your property and better-fit your home to your lifestyle.
On average, 160 buildings in the UK collapse each year* and 35% of all construction-related fatalities are the result of unsafe design. There are cases throughout the UK every year of residential properties just like yours that suffer significant damage due to unsuitable designs and a lack of specialist consultation, putting contractors, visitors and families at risk of serious injury.
You can create larger, lighter spaces that ideally suit your family’s lifestyle by modifying supporting structures but this should only ever be done after consulting a quality Structural Engineer.
ADS can work with you or your architect to assess the structure of your property before works begin. An expert structural redesign of the area you wish to modify will then turn your vision in to a safe, solid reality with the minimum amount of compromise possible through the use of innovative technology. The most cost effective supports will be recommended and combined with structural drawings that account for the loading and forces of the supporting elements.*Source: http://www.hse.gov.uk/research/rrpdf/rr463.pdf
