Structural beam calculations

No matter what type of building work you are planning, getting the structural calculations right is essential for the success of your project. And nothing is more important than your structural justification for your load-bearing beams as these are integral to the safety and integrity of your building project.

To cut to the chase, your structural beam calculations are what makes sure your building stays in place once you have completed your project.

As with any major building projects that involve adding a new extension or altering the structural integrity of your home, you need to have your property inspected and a detailed calculation report drawn up.

Our team at GL Design Services will not only provide you with beam calculations but also provide supplemental checks to ensure loads are safely transferred through a baearing member onto the ground.

Structural calculations for steel beams

Steel is a very strong and versatile material to work with and is a popular choice for home extensions and internal layout alterations when walls are being removed.

Depending on your building plans and where you are planning to use steel beams, you need to consider the end bearing conditions and how loads from above are transferred into the ground.  You will need steel beam and padstones calculations to prove that the strength and integrity of your building project will meet all current design codes and Building Regulations (Part A).

By working with our team at GL Design Services we will ensure that your steel beam and framework will be built to last and will meet all safety requirements.

Many people wanting to alter or extend their homes wonder why they need these structural calculations but it is a requirement from Building Control and gives reassurance regarding overall safety of the support specified.

Here at GL Design Services, we have many years of experience in working on standard, bespoke and unusual structural calculations. We can save you a lot of time and money by making sure that your structural beam calculations will pass inspection and in turn will ensure the safety and integrity of your home and your new extension or changed internal layout.
