New Build Homes
When building a home or residential development, hiring a reliable and efficient construction company is undoubtedly essential. However, before you can get to that stage, you’ll need to consult a new homes architect and structural engineer.
Whether you’re investing in a self-build home for your family’s future or a development to add to your portfolio, achieving robust and well-designed new homes requires specialist input from the start of the planning process.
At RD Engineering, we can help with the architectural design of new build homes, and ensure that all new homes are built safely thanks to our structural engineering expertise.
New build home architects
Before you can start building, you’ll need to design the structure, including the layout and exterior. Most new buildings will require a qualified architect to design the building, using their technical knowledge to create a house that’s both aesthetically pleasing and completely functional.
When you contact RD Engineering to benefit from our architectural services, we can assess the feasibility of your new build project and come up with detailed drawings of your new house architecture using computer-assisted design software.
Crucially, we can make sure that your building design adheres to the relevant safety codes and regulations in the UK – our structural engineers will use these plans and drawings to recommend appropriate structural designs and materials.
Local authorities will also expect copies of your blueprints and architectural drawings if you submit an application for planning permission or Building Control approval, as will warranty providers.
New build home structural engineers
When designing new build homes, structural engineers work closely with new build architects to achieve your vision in a way that doesn’t compromise on strength or stability, ensuring that the completed house is structurally sound.
As qualified engineers, the load-bearing structural elements we assist with include foundations, walls, roofing, floors, openings for doors and windows, and more. We carry out thorough assessments of the site and architectural plans, run through careful calculations, and produce technical reports advising on the best construction methods for these elements.
Analysing load-bearing capacities and impact resistance also allows us to recommend suitable materials for your design specifications. Whether your structure includes timber, masonry, concrete, steel, or glass, we may alter designs to improve their safety while adjusting the outward aesthetics as little as possible.
Foundation design is one of the most significant aspects of a new build, as a failed foundation can compromise the safety of the entire house on top of it. Our site investigations and risk assessments will ensure that foundations and drainage are laid correctly in suitable ground.
Having structural engineers on board to check that your new build is up to code can help to avoid costly errors during construction, and prevent hazards or problems from developing in the future.
