Providing Structural Steelwork for Period Properties
When completing work on period properties, it is always important to make sure that you are being sympathetic to the original styling. Whether you need to restructure part of the building that has become weak, or build an extension on an existing building, structural steelwork will most likely be necessary to do this.
The installation of structural steelwork on period properties can be fast and effective, as long as the size and design are correct. Many older buildings were not originally structurally safe and adding a steel frame will ensure that the property is now safe and will have longevity. Structural Steelwork is much lighter and more durable than wooden alternatives, meaning that using steel will not disturb the original structure.
An additional advantage of steelwork is that it is not affected by termites and woodworm; which can be a real problem in very old buildings. So if you need structural steelwork for your period property; you might want to think about using steel as a more modern and effective approach.
We can work with you to create a full CAD drawing service for internal steel frameworks as well as staircases, balconies and other bespoke metalwork for your property. From as little as a hand-drawn sketch, we can create detailed drawings for your design.
If needs be, one of our accredited surveyors will come to measure the project. Then our draughtsman will be directly in contact with the client, to ensure a smooth and effective working relationship moving forwards.
