Structural Engineer for Load Bearing Wall Removal

for Residential and Commercial Building

One of the most common kinds of home interior remodels and commercial tenant improvements require removing one or more load bearing walls to create a more open space. While it is no small task to take down a load bearing wall, it provides your space with a more open layout and makes it feel bigger and freer inside.

While sometimes a load bearing wall can be identified based on its location, it often takes a certified structural engineer to determine if the wall is load bearing or not and if it is, how to safely remove it while still keeping your building structurally safe and sound in the event of an earthquake. Our California structural engineers can make the determination from either an onsite inspection or by looking at your building’s original blueprints that may be on record with your city’s building department. The accidental demolition of a load bearing wall without consulting a licensed structural engineer can cause a lot of damage to both life and property.
