  • Pre-purchase structural assessment reports confirming the structural conditions of residential structures, commercial and industrial buildings,
  • Structural design of retaining walls, including timber pole, masonry, and concrete walls with or without tiebacks,
  • Initial and detailed seismic assessments (ISA and DSA) to determine the seismic strength in terms of a percentage of New Building Standard (%NBS),
  • Design of seismic strengthening to meet 34%NBS, 67%NBS or 100%NBS,
  • Damage assessment reports and remedial works for residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.
  • Design of foundation re-leveling works, including full structural and geotechnical package and construction monitoring (PS1 and PS4),
  • Construction monitoring and PS4,

The requirement for a detailed design is assessed on a case-by-case basis. The design will be determined by the geotechnical conditions of the site, the proposed shape of the building, architectural layout, and preferred construction material such as steel, timber, concrete, or masonry.

Our structural design package will include:

  • Structural drawings and specifications,
  • Design Features Report (DFR),
  • Design calculations
  • Producer Statement PS1,
  • Design LBP Memo,
  • Safety in Design
  • Durability letter – B2 (if required).

We will also carry out structural construction monitoring and provide a producer statement PS4 (construction review), which is required by local authorities as part of the Code of Compliance Application and approval.

Prices will be variable depending on the complexity of each project. We will be able to provide fixed prices for smaller projects.

Our turnaround time is reasonably short. Depending on the size of each project, we can complete our design package within 4 weeks after confirmation of the contract provided that all information is available (geotechnical and architectural).

STRUCTURAL INSPECTION & REPAIRS

STRUCTURAL INSPECTION & REPAIRS

Our structural engineers have a wide range of experience with structural assessment of damaged houses caused by the Canterbury and Kaikoura Earthquakes. This is required to support EQC and/or insurance claims for the remediation of earthquake-related damages.

Our assessment includes a visual inspection of the building, a floor-level survey, a verticality survey of the walls and columns, a level survey of the door heads, benchtops, and windowsills.

As part of the repairs, we provide a full structural design package for consenting purposes, which includes:

  • Structural drawings for foundation relevelling and crack repairs (if required),
  • Geotechnical letter Provided that onsite data is available,
  • Design calculations,
  • Design Features Report,
  • Safety in design,
  • PS1, and
  • Design LBP Memo.

Our price for foundation repairs for a typical standard house is estimated at $1,650+GST. The fee for a structural inspection is variable, depending on the size of the house. However, for a standard inspection, our fee will start from $1,450+GST.
