Structural Design

Good Design can save time & money & provides an efficient solution within  new build or alteration work.

Cringle Associates can deliver robust and economic designs, either Architectural or Structural and provide you with all the drawings, details and calculations necessary to acquire Building Regulation approval. Our design work provides peace of mind and ensures your property is safe and secure.  The drawings can then also be used to obtain cost estimates from suitable contractors or be incorporated into a Building Works Contract under our Contract Administration facilities if you want tighter control over costings. See Services for further details. 

Structural Alterations

If you are contemplating undertaking any structural alterations within your property, then you must submit a Building Regulations application.  Even if the alterations only involve knocking two rooms into one or  enlarging a window opening, a full Building Regulations application or  Building Notice is usually required.The application must be accompanied  by Structural Calculations, drawings and details which demonstrate that the design complies with the requirements of the approved documents of the Building Regulations. Applications to the Local Council Building  Control Departments can be in two forms; 1) Full Plans or 2) Building  Notice. The difference between the two is that a completion certificate is not normally given with the Building Notice.

The Local Authority require a fee to be paid for all applications see Metropolitan Borough of Wirral, or Ellesmere Port & Neston, or Liverpool Council or Chester City Council web sites for further details.  Or now you can utilise private, government approved Building Inspectors to administer the application and undertake the necessary site inspections and certification of the works. We would highly recommend QuadrantAI approved Building Inspectors. 

Kriss Cringle Associates can visit your property to discuss your ideas or proposals and advise upon the structural aspects of your requirements and recommend the best solution to meet your needs. Contact us now to arrange a visit and we will measure up to produce the plans and structural calculations.
