What Are Structural Works?

These can range from underpinning basements in London homes to addressing structural defects in commercial properties. No matter the project size, we go above and beyond to meet requirements and exceed expectations while remaining within timescales and budgets. These qualities make our construction company stand out amongst its competitors.

Our services include the following:

Removing Load-Bearing Walls

The removal of load-bearing walls must be calculated carefully to keep the structure sound and stable. The engineers at Engel Construction Ltd can draw up detailed plans and drawings. We can then knock through or remove load-bearing walls, a great way to improve a property's layout.

Propping

Propping involves temporarily supporting a load and stabilising structures. Materials used for this process come in several shapes and sizes, depending on the work involved. Our teams rely on Acrow props for medium-weight loads, but other systems include:

  • Mono Props

  • Titan Props

  • Tilt Props

  • Trishore Props

Underpinning

Our underpinning work is used on various projects across London, including the desirable Kensington area. This structural work increases foundation depth or strengthens support systems already in place. It may be needed to bear the weight of further storeys or address any instability-related issues.

We are experienced in all relevant methods, including traditional mass concrete pouring and RC framework. Underpinning involves sectional excavating to a desired depth below the structure's footing and filling the cavity with a poured concrete mixture, which is then left to cure.

Foundations

A foundation is the lower section of a building’s structure that transfers its gravity load into the ground. Foundations must be strong enough to ensure a building's safety and stability. There are two foundation types: shallow and deep. To determine which is best, we calculate the required depth in relation to the building and ground conditions.

Shallow foundations are best when the surface soil offers enough support. On the other hand, deep foundations transfer gravity loads even further into the ground with a suitable soil type.

Refurbishments

If you require contractors for property refurbishments, our fully trained workforce can help. We can undertake structural repairs and modifications throughout all London areas and within the M25 radius. Services available include substructure and superstructure works, RC framework, façade retention and temporary support for compromised builds.

We have project managers qualified in civil engineering with a wealth of experience, and we can manage the refurbishment of structural works for the project's full duration.

Excavations

Excavation is the removal of earth to create a cavity in the ground using heavy plant machinery and a preparatory service we complete regularly. Each team member is knowledgeable in current health and safety protocols and follows them to the letter during all groundwork stages. Many techniques are adopted during excavations to safely support our work and prevent collapses.
