Project Description

Loft conversion (duo-pitch to mansard-style open plan roof)

 

Key Tasks

  • Design of new joists spanning between steel beams supporting new loft floor
  • Splice connection design for large span steel beams thus ease of construction
  • Steel spreader plate design to allow for least intrusive beam bearings onto existing masonry wall
  • Progressive collapse design for new loft floor due to terrace layout – Building Control requirement
  • Load check of existing foundations (load take-down)
  • Trial pit inspection on-site
 All design was finally checked and drafted on AutoCAD. Structural details and sections all provided.
