In order to support a house purchase, a structural survey was required on a property exhibiting signs of cracking that had been noted by the surveyor’s report. When their previous Structural Engineer was unable to undertake a survey for at least a month, ONE Creative environments (ONE) were able to rapidly deliver a report and recommendations.Download Project
The Nook Residential Structural Survey
Civil & Structural Engineering,
A Chartered Structural Engineer undertook a detailed survey of the noted cracking and a visual survey of the rest of the property. Although it was not listed, it was a traditionally constructed building so a full understanding of the building fabric and past works were vital.
It was determined that past alterations had caused movement in timbers in the ground floor ceiling and a proposed repair, suitable for a builder to price, was supplied.
At roof level, the design of the roof was shown to be causing additional cracking and inappropriate repairs had exacerbated the situation. Again, suitable remedial works were recommended.
Other holistic recommendations relating to the proximity of trees, penetrating water and wall render were all provided as added value to the client to safeguard their investment for the future.
