by SBD Consulting Engineers Civil And Structural Engineering Solutions Melbour
A home must be constructed or remodeled according to the building laws of Melbourne. Hence, hiring structural engineers assures the project is legally done.


Whether you want to add house extensions, remodel the present home and build a new one in Melbourne, you definitely need a professional structural engineers’ advice. They are the best one for preparing the drawings and designs needed for planning consent as well as building regulations.

Structural engineers understand the diagrammatical and mathematical designs for the building surveys to develop buildings’ sketches. The structures have two categorized divisions, namely reinforced designs and steel frame structures.

The designed structures must resist the lateral forces’ overturning effects. International Building Codes determine the value for load caused by the snow, wind, and seismic.  Core shear walls take the earthquake load for its dynamic analysis. The professional structural engineer who can create stable, safe, and economic designs for the proposed structures handles all such analyses.

Thus, the verified reasons for hiring the structural engineers for your property in Melbourne, are detailed below.

i. Old  Building Restorations

The structural engineers offer old building restorations through analysis of the building’s conditions. The analysis helps for restoring and repairing the old homes and the engineers decide the apt solutions to repair the wood, steel, concrete, and the other structural elements.
 They are even ready for consultations to assist the project managers, architects, homeowners, and contractors for restorations. They are the heart and soul of the design concept, progressing project management, and ultimate documentations.

ii. Designing A New Home

Good design makes a good home when the structural engineers intervene to ensure the house's structures are extremely strong and even the structure is calculated properly. As a result, the structural problems can be avoided from arising in the future.

iii. Purchasing or Selling A House

At several instances, the structural engineers evaluate a problem displayed after home inspections. Once the general home inspections are done, the structural engineers conduct the inspections to give it a final warranty. Their guidance is even included as recommendations in the home inspector’s final home inspection reports. The licensed structural engineers can only guide the home buyers and sellers with accurate assessments and proper solutions.

iv. Appointed Home Renovation Projects

Planning and renovating home involves load-bearing walls removal, adding more living space at the second storey renovations, or adding rooms with wide spaces that need the support of the structural engineers for the warrant. At the same time when you have planned to extend your living quarters, then the designs and engineering will be needed for permit documents. The structural engineers are licensed to stamp the new constructions and major renovations.
Being licensed, the structural engineers are the ideal professionals for assessing the feasibility of the major home renovation projects. They conduct necessary site visits for evaluating the potential and structural issues.

A few more reason for hiring the residential structural engineers include:

    • Damaged homes due to natural disaster
    • Foundation settlement and movement and wall cracks
    • Interior framing movements and cracking
    • Bowing and sagging floors and walls
    • Damages due to carpenter ants, termite, and rot
    • Damaged and undersized framing members
    • Soil concerns and sinkholes
    • Building collapse
    • Roof failure
    • Fire, flood, water, and high wind damages

Before any building is constructed, initial contaminated land investigation and building construction surveys are done. The expert structural engineers make sure that your ideas are properly translated to the economic designs complying with the building legislation and fulfilling the requirements. In any structural design, highways and sewer drain serve as core importance. So, only the structural engineers serve as the professional site investigation consultant to complete and approve the plan sets prior to starting the construction projects.
