of projects require a Structural Engineer
“All projects require the input of a qualified structural engineer in order to meet strict UK building regulations.”
- Head of Partnerships
Just as the name suggests, structural engineers are concerned with everything that makes your house stand up. They’re a vital part of the building regulations process and will work with Resi to produce the technical details needed to secure building control approval.
When starting the building regulations process, finding a structural engineer will be one of the very first steps.Find a structural engineer
They will produce a structural report based on our proposed design, ensuring it stands up and meets compliance. Your contractor will need this information during the construction stage so they execute your building works correctly.
Their report includes...
A review of materials
Details about the location
The weight of the structure
Structural support needed
In order to secure approval from either an approved inspector or your local building control, you must have a structural engineer's report.

No extra cost
Our Connect introduction service comes at zero cost to you - Resi charges a 3-5% fee to the contractor for a successful introduction. This fee is charged directly to the contractors, and is based on the total value of your tender. This fee is not an additional sum to the total cost of your project. We believe in ensuring these fees are transparent, and so this fee is paid by the contractor once they start work onsite.
