Being a Structural Engineer is a great profession with many different facets of work that one becomes involved in. Croft Structural Engineers mirrors this by providing a variety of services.
The production of drawings for construction work is the company's core role and all designs from 2012 have been Eurocode-compliant. Before any structural design is completed the brief is reviewed with our clients, site visits and inspections are undertaken, structural calculations are defined for all elements, and only then are the drawings produced. This approach can be applied to a variety of different projects from new builds, renovations, conversions and repairs.
Croft has extensive basement knowledge and in response to the change in many of the councils requirements, we have developed our Basement Impact Assessments (BIAs).
The practice has experience working with both network rail and London underground. We are aware of the differences working with these organisations.
Report writing, building surveys and inspections is the second core service provided. A range of reports can be arranged;
- Mortgage reports: Once initial surveys are completed Croft's expertise is often called for on the trickier properties.
- Subsidence reports: Croft can provide long and medium term monitoring of properties to correctly determine if subsidence is occurring.
Croft has a strong QA system to ensure rigour in our process.
