Everything you need to know about finding a Structural Engineer

Structural engineers are a type of building consultant and are an important part of the building or renovating process.  As the name implies, structural engineers are responsible for the structural integrity of a building.  They design and specify the structural components of the building such as the walls, foundations, footings, posts, and beams.

Role of a Structural Engineer

Structural engineers perform the following tasks:

  • Design the framework of buildings and other structures to ensure strength and rigidity.
  • Study the development of new building materials and building methods.
  • Consult with other engineers, architects, landscape architects and environmental scientists.
  • Operate and program computers to assist with calculations.
  • Research, develop and test solutions to specific structural problems.
  • Supervise construction of buildings and makes recommendations for corrections if there are any problems or the building does not meet standards.
  • Take into account the effect that natural forces have on the building and design the building accordingly (to take into account forces from winds and storms etc).
  • Review existing structural designs to identify savings or to match the building closer to the builder’s expertise.
  • Pre-purchase inspection reports.
  • Identify the feasibility of removing or moving load-bearing walls or other structures.
  • Provide advice on how to safely change the layout of an existing home, if required.
  • Organise delivery of the materials and equipment needed to complete the project and supervise the labour.
