The simplest structural alterations can normally be covered with an A4 sketch, however
larger projects sensibly require structural drawings to show all the structural elements
and perhaps more importantly, their correct locations, relative levels and how the
elements connect together.
Structural Engineer’s drawings normally accompany your Architect’s drawings to provide
a fully detailed application to enable Building Regulations Approval to be granted.
We use AutoCAD drawing software, which is updated on a regular basis and ensures
that our drawings are compatible and able to be shared with fellow professionals
such as Architects and Surveyors. Drawings prepared in AutoCAD are easily sent by
e-mail to reduce waiting time and can be used in electronic submissions to Building
Where drawings are required to be printed for site use, we have a colour plotter
enabling drawings to be printed in house up to A1 size. For large issues, we use
a local print shop, Chiltern Image Service.
