Renovations & Remodeling
Building envelopes are complex systems and each project is unique. The integration of evaluation, design, and proper implementation of the design repair are critical to success. Our dedicated renovation team of structural engineers are knowledgeable in almost any given situation from residential homes to industrial precincts and large infrastructure. Eastern Engineering Group’s engineers work closely with clients to address all areas of concern during project pre-planning, including safety, construct-ability, budgeting, scheduling, and phasing as it relates to optimizing efficiency, and potential disruption to building tenants/occupants.
Eastern Engineering Group has extensive experience in repair & remodeling projects from small- to large-scale projects such a schools, residential mid-rise buildings and more. In addition, we have experience in restoration of historic buildings.
Whether you need assistance with the identification of structural defects, checking the structural adequacy of a structure, assessing ongoing development works to ensure that no additional hazards are developing, or complying with city or state requirements, Eastern Engineering Group can help with your reporting needs.
A structural inspection may include a specific structural component (such as the balconies, balustrades or cracking due to settlement in the walls) or the whole structure. During the inspection, we will record any structural defects and assess if the components or the building is structurally sound. A structural report is then prepared, providing advice as to the cause of the problem and making recommendations for repairs or remedial works if required.
These reports are usually technically investigative yet easy to understand, with clear descriptions so that any findings and recommendations are easily referenced. Usually the inspection is based on observations of exposed structural elements. However, in some cases destructive techniques or X-rays are needed to completely evaluate a specific condition.
Our consultants will review the adequacy of your preexisting shop plans prepared by others to make sure the requirements to meet building codes and approve plans are met. Site visits, responding to Requests For Information, conference calls, addressing field conditions are also services rendered in this stage of the project. Once you’ve gotten yourself started, we are able to help you take the next steps toward project greatness.
