Increase space and add value with a new build basement that is structurally sound
New build basements are becoming more and more popular as it can be a cost-effective way to add space and value to a property. However, you need to consult a structural engineer before planning any work. In effect, the new basement acts as a new foundation for the whole property, so it needs to be engineered properly.
We can provide a full basement new build service that includes structural assessment of your existing building to check feasibility and a foundation and ground survey to check suitability and strength to support a basement.
Our expert structural engineers can carry out the following tasks:
- Existing structural survey – inspection for cracking, subsidence, heave, and other faults.
- Topographical survey – check whether excavation is possible and how a basement would fit underneath your property.
- Site and ground investigation – assess geological conditions and soil strength to determine suitability for basement construction.
