Frequently asked questions
What is the role of a structural engineer?
A structural engineer plays a very important role in any renovation or construction project that involve load calculations and structural work. Whether residential or commercial, they will generally follow a pre-established sequence for projects: plan, conceptualize, develop, design and manage.
What is the purpose of a load calculation?
A load calculation is used to verify whether the structure of a building can accommodate additional weight or load, such as the addition of a second storey. It’s also used to check that the retaining beams and columns of a property are still in good condition and supporting well. This load-bearing calculation assesses the stress that the structure can withstand. It may also be required if you want to remove a load-bearing wall, modify partitions, change the roof (for a green roof, for example), renovate the frame, or replace the exterior cladding with brick or other masonry work.
Is it necessary to hire an engineer to add or renovate a balcony?
Whether it’s for a house, condominium or apartment building, when you want to add a balcony or modify the structure of an existing balcony, you’ll need an engineer’s recommendation on the type of structure to add. The engineer will also instruct the contractor on how to carry out the work. If it’s only a repair then you won’t need such expertise, but anytime you need to change the structure or rebuild a new balcony, it’s essential.
