Structural Design

Our projects are hugely diverse from multi storey buildings to bespoke house builds, basements, industrial buildings and warehousing, building alterations, remodeling and remedial work and also demountable structures and design of temporary works.

We design in all commonly used structural materials, including concrete, steel, plain and reinforced masonry and timber. In addition, we carry out designs in aluminum and structural glass.

Our structural design team also undertakes specialist design services such as connection design, staircase design and balustrading.

Civil Design

PRP design a variety of civil engineering works including roads and drains; this often involves obtaining technical approval for section agreements coupled with Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS). We have considerable expertise in designing heavy plant foundations, storage bins, retaining walls and heavy duty pavements together with railway works.

Structural Surveys

PRP have comprehensive experience in surveying all types of buildings and structures. These include small terraced houses to large listed buildings as well as multi storey and low rise commercial properties, retail, industrial, office and agricultural buildings.

We also carry out surveys on other structures such as roads, drains, sewers, embankments, silos, conveyors and underground structures.

Our surveys are carried out by chartered structural engineers who will produce a comprehensive report to meet your needs in a format that is acceptable to all financial institutions.

Structural Inspections

PRP undertake structural inspections and provide structural engineer’s reports for structural defects or problems identified within a building or other structure.

Most commonly, an engineer’s report will be required by a mortgage lender following the identification of potential structural problems within a valuation or homebuyer report on a residential property, such as cracking in a wall or distortion in the roof structure.

PRP also undertake inspections for householders and vendors who may be concerned about the presence of any possible structural defects they wish to deal with prior to marketing their property.

PRP will undertake a visual inspection of the defect, taking into account as much of the associated structure as possible and make an assessment of the cause. A written report on the inspection will be provided incorporating recommendations for remedial works or further investigations, if appropriate.
