Structural Engineers – North London
At Halstead Associates we are committed to providing our Clients with the right structural solution to suit each unique design brief. Our extensive experience both within North London and countrywide allows us to tailor each design to satisfy the varied challenges posed, be it site constraints, planning restrictions or budget.
Our projects vary from multi million pound commercial buildings through high end residential new builds to small scale property alterations for private Clients. Our knowledge of different construction methods and materials enables us to provide safe and economical structural designs for all building types.
We work closely with Clients, Architects and Services Engineers to provide a fully integrated design which minimises the structural impact on the finished product and which takes into account the needs of the contractor during construction.
Technical drawings are produced using a mix of AutoCad 2D for smaller projects or alternatively with Revit for projects where a BIM (Building Information Modelling) approach is required.
Our services include:
Designing for new build works in all of the principal structural materials for offices, hotels, warehousing, schools and residential properties.
Design for refurbishment and alteration projects across the residential, commercial and institutional sectors, including basement extensions, upward single and multi-storey extensions and internal reconfigurations.
Structural Methodology Statements to accompany Basement Impact Assessments.
Feasibility reports, outline designs and pre-planning advice.
Visual inspection to confirm the structural soundness of your property.
Structural Engineering reports for property purchases and insurance claims.
In addition to the above we work closely with third party Civil Engineers to provide below ground drainage and highways design for those projects which require these services.

Structural engineers use their knowledge of structural design to calculate the loads that a structure must be able to support and then design the structure accordingly. They also take into account the effects of wind, earthquakes, and other natural disasters when designing structures.
An experienced structural engineer can save you significant time and money on your home build. Firstly, they will be able to advise on the use of building materials to develop properties more efficiently and with optimal material. A structural engineer will recommend materials based on their function, durability and structural integrity. Over the course of the refurbishment or construction, the use of optimal building materials will save you time and money on wasted materials.
The purpose of a structural engineer is to structurally design your building so that it is safe and structurally sound. An experienced structural engineering firm will have worked on countless home renovations and commercial construction projects, which gives them the knowledge and skills to ensure that your property is designed safely. A structural engineer’s priority is to ensure that the building’s structural integrity is optimal, whilst also identifying and resolving any potential safety issues along the course of the project.
Through their experience and intimate knowledge of the construction sector, structural engineers can speed up the refurbishment or construction process and help you to avoid any potential regulatory complications down the line. A structural engineer will assist with providing the required information to Building Control and Planning Officials, so that you can obtain the necessary approvals and certifications for your property.
If you’re planning a home refurbishment or construction project and don’t know where to find trusted contractors, an experienced structural engineering firm will be able to assist you. Most experienced structural engineers will have a network of architects, interior designers and construction professionals that they have worked with across different projects.
