Understanding the importance of load bearing walls in home or building renovations is an important part of the design process. You shouldn’t have to let this stop you from achieving your dreams of an open floor plan or extensions that remove load bearing walls. Our experienced structural engineers are here to help with high quality engineering plans that preserve stability throughout all phases of a project. No matter how unique your vision is, we’ve optimized the process for a turnaround time that meets your needs. With our fully licensed and insured team of structural engineers and drafters, we have the experience you need to get your projects involving load bearing walls completed on time and under budget.
Drawing up floor plans for a remodel is necessary to obtain a permit and complete the work legally. Before a home or building contractor can commence construction for additions, room extensions or opening up spaces, the location and role of load bearing walls needs to be identified and engineering drawings and calculations need to be prepared. This assures that the work is done safely so the structural integrity of the home is not compromised. We can tell you everything you need to know about how the weight of your structure is distributed throughout the floor plan. This is why architects love working with us for their structural engineering needs to ensure a seamless remodel.
If your home or building has any structural instability, we can help provide the expertise necessary to set it to right. We often see this when a new homeowner acquires a property only to find that the prior owner illegally removed a load bearing wall and jeopardized the structural integrity of the home. From the depths of the foundations to the top of the roof, we can ensure you have the engineering help you need to renovate a structure. Between obtaining any necessary permits to working with you on your vision to the end, our skilled team is ready to provide you with quality cost-efficient engineering.
With modern design aesthetics embracing more open floor plans, there’s been an increased need for high quality designs and skilled engineering guidance when it comes to the removal of load bearing walls. Additionally, previously non- or partially-load bearing walls can become more structurally necessary as other parts of the renovation shift weight around. In seismic zones common in CA, there are also braced walls that provide lateral support that cannot be easily removed. Our skilled team can work with your vision to take all these moving parts into account while creating a final floor plan to suit your needs. And we can refer you to reputable skilled contractors that are experienced in executing the more complex remodeling that involves the removal of load bearing walls. Architects choose us for these more complicated projects due to our competitive pricing, high quality work and optimized permit approval process. We work with our clients to help them craft the home or building of their dreams, with responsive customer service and as much flexibility as they need.
Taking into account the needs of your space, we can provide floor plans for the construction of new load bearing walls. Whether your goal is to partition rooms, remodel to improve flow or replace damaged load bearing walls, our team can provide the high quality work you need to achieve it. Remodeling a home or building that’s previously undergone a structural renovation involving load bearing walls comes with its own hurdles as well. We’re here to make sure nothing stands in the way of getting exactly what you want, minus the hassle and the long wait times.
