role: Structural Engineers

Our early involvement with the refurbishment of this Grade II listed farmhouse involved advising on the structural implications of the planning proposal, as well as acting as conservation consultants.  The construction work involved upgrading the services to the property, restoring the late Victorian additions, and removing unsympathetic additions to the Georgian range including removal of PVC windows and a 1960s toilet block. Structural repairs to the chimney stack, to internal timber beams and ties were carried out. A 19c service block was rebuilt with the original bricks with a reconstructed softwood framed roof.
