The repurposing of existing buildings either in part or in whole is becoming ever more popular. It is important to understand an existing building’s condition and suitability prior to any acquisition or for a better understanding of maintenance needs if within an existing property portfolio.

The ability of an existing structure to carry new loading is key to determining the viability of refurbishment and re-use. Building issues range from low risk, almost cosmetic in nature, to the more severe and costly problems associated with structural defects. Bolt Structures has chartered structural engineers with significant experience in surveying existing buildings ranging from detailed checking of large commercial multi-story frames to smaller residential properties for the homeowner.
