It is recognised that many older buildings are still being utilised today. Expanding companies who wish to avoid the costs and time involved in relocating and, as such, are looking to use existing facilities to meet their needs. This creates additional demands upon the existing structure, which may already be showing signs of weakness as they struggle to cope with the current demand.
Buildings can also lose their structural integrity via a wide range of situations from vehicle damage to earthquakes.
Shaun Hodgson Engineering has completed a number of structural engineering projects requiring the upgrade and strengthening of existing assets to ensure that they are fit for purpose in supporting new plant and equipment safely. This includes the supply and installation of steel framed structures, mezzanines, and staircases.
Based on our client’s requirements we will undertake; full site surveys, general arrangement drawings for client approval, structural calculations, manufacturing and installation providing turnkey solutions.
