Structural Surveys & Design
Leak Detection Surveys
Structural Engineer Hemel Hempstead
A structural engineer will carry out a site visit to the property to assess structural concerns such as cracks, subsidence, or simply to determine if a wall proposed for removal is load-bearing or not and whether it will require a supporting beam.
They will also provide detailed calculations and designs for any project. Offering full support and assistance with ensuring the building project is completed without any delays
Alpine did a damp survey for us, they were brilliant, really helpful and really informative and really easy to deal with. The price was also very competitive. Would highly recommend!
All our structural engineers carry out a thorough and detailed survey of the property to get a full understanding of the client’s needs and expectations and then work with the client closely to provide the information.
When doing so, we ensure the design and calculations meet British Building Regulations as well as provide flexibility for the project.
Upon completion of our thorough structural survey, our structural engineer will explain in detail the issues detected with the property, the areas of concern and more importantly, what action is required to rectify any structural issues found.
All of this information is included in our reports, which follow within two or three working days, or less, of the survey.
Our structural surveyors will never discuss their findings with tenants, or the property owner if surveying for a buyer.
Alpine Surveys take great pride in providing quality structural surveys complemented by our detailed trusted reporting & recommendations.

In addition, the structural survey report details the implications, followed by our recommendations to rectify the issues.
Unlike many other building surveyors or structural surveying companies, if during the works you have questions or concerns, our structural surveyors will be more than happy to discuss the issues with you, or if necessary return to site.
Alpine Surveys are dedicated in providing the highest level of customer care and support, which, applies to all our services, not just our building and structural surveys and services.
Our structural surveyors use the latest building structural surveying testing equipment, and we also utilise methods such as, Thermal Imaging, Micro-bore inspections, and even Aerial Surveys when required.
All of our Structural Engineers have substantial experience regarding the working out of Structural Calculations.
Structural Calculations are detailed workings out that are performed before a construction or design project is undertaken.
They are important firstly because they are a requirement set by Building Regulations.
Structural Calculations will allow you to be aware of any potential risks, without the calculations, there is no assurance that your walls will support the second floor of your building for example.
Using specialist equipment and programmes, such as Auto CAD (Computer Aided Design), our Structural Engineers are able to design and complete Structural Drawings to a high standard and meet the requirements of all building regulations and codes of practice.
Structural Drawings are plans, or a set of plans for how a building or any sort of structure is built.
The drawings are important because they will include information of load-carrying additions to a structure.
They will clearly outline what is needed in the project, and confirm the types of materials needed along with their sizes.
Our Structural Engineer will take measurements at a site visit, to enable the preparation of a floor plan, section, and elevations. We measure the distances between walls, ceiling height, wall thickness, ceiling thickness etc.
Alpine Surveys are independent Damp Surveyors with no interest in providing remedial works. We simply provide you with a professional and honest report detailing the cause of your damp problems
