Can you assess whether the wall is load-bearing?
Yes, we can assess whether the wall is load-bearing or not. Our structural engineers will conduct a thorough survey of the building to determine the load-bearing status of the wall.
What is the process for removing a load-bearing wall?
The process for removing a load-bearing wall involves installing temporary support, removing the wall, and then installing a new support, such as a steel beam, to support the structure.
Will a steel beam be required to support the structure?
Yes, a steel beam will likely be required to support the structure when removing a load-bearing wall.
What size of steel beam will be needed?
The size of the steel beam required will depend on the size of the wall being removed and the load it was supporting. Our structural engineers will calculate the required size of the steel beam for your specific project.
Will any additional structural work be required after the wall is removed?
Depending on the size and location of the wall, additional structural work may be required after the wall is removed to ensure the stability and safety of the building. We can advise on this as and when required or requested.
Will any planning permission be needed for the work?
Planning permission may not be required for wall removal work, but we will advise you on the necessary permissions and regulations that may apply in your specific case.
What are the health and safety considerations when removing a wall?
Health and safety considerations when removing a wall include ensuring that the temporary supports are installed correctly, the work area is safe, and any hazards are identified and addressed.
How long will it take to remove the wall?
The time taken to remove a wall will depend on the size of the wall, the complexity of the project, and other factors. We will provide an estimate of the time required for your specific project.
How much will it cost to remove the wall?
The cost of wall removal will depend on the scope of the project, the size of the wall, and other factors. We will provide a detailed quote and breakdown of the costs involved.
Will any temporary support be needed during the work?
Yes, temporary support will likely be needed during the work to ensure the safety and stability of the structure.
How will you ensure that the work is completed to a high standard?
We ensure that our work is completed to the highest standard by adhering to all relevant regulations and codes of practice, using the latest technology and techniques, and ensuring that all work is overseen by our experienced structural engineers. We offer support throughout the whole process.
Can you provide any references or testimonials from past clients who have had a wall removed?
