Structural Engineering Services
TYPES OF ENGINEERING SERVICES:
WITH ENGINEER'S REPORT
Concerned about a cracks in the walls, uneven floors, or sticking doors? Foundation inspections and foundation repair often create unnecessary stress for homeowners, home buyers, and real estate agents. This is because the industry is fraught with so-called “professionals” offering insufficient services. Resulting mistakes can have a significant financial impact. In North America for example, the foundation repair industry has reached over 50 billion dollars annually. That is because many of the issues with foundations are either misdiagnosed or the repairs made are ineffective. GreenWorks is in business to remove the stress, fear, and uncertainty surrounding foundation inspections (and any resulting foundation repairs). We do not provide any foundation repairs, so you can trust our 3rd party foundation investigation.
Foundation design is the creation of a construction plan for a building foundation. It is a highly specialized function and usually performed by a licensed structural engineer. The foundation is the structural base that stands on the ground and supports the rest of the building. Therefore, foundation design must involve extensive study of the ground below the foundation as well as the design and materials used on the foundation itself. An essential part of the foundation design is to devise a foundation type and size that will result in acceptable values of deformation (settlement) and an adequate margin of safety to failure (the degree of utilization of the soil strength). GreenWorks requests a soil report before performing our foundation designs. Need help obtaining a soil report - Contact Us!
STRUCTURAL PLANS & DESIGN
(REMODEL / ADDITION)
Structural engineering plans and designs are necessary whether your project involves minor updates or large-scale construction. This range can encompass new additions, buildings, remodeling, deck designs, or simple enhancements like a sky light. With regard to cost effectiveness, it is wise to have engineering plans and architectural designs finalized before the building process begins. GreenWorks provides both structural drawings and architectural renderings for how your residential or commercial structure will be built. We will outline the size and types of materials to be used, as well as the general demands for connections. GreenWorks structural plans communicate the design of the building's structure to the building authority for review. Structural drawings are also included with a proposed building's contract documents, which guide contractors in detailing, fabricating, and installing parts of the structure.
LOAD BEARING WALL EVALUATION
We all know the significance of altering a home's structural system. There are two types of walls in your property: load-bearing and non-load bearing. A load-bearing wall holds up your structure by transferring weight from the roof down to the foundation. These walls cannot effectively be removed without installing a structural system, such as a beam, column or post. If you are doing a remodel or expansion project, GreenWorks can verify if it's load-bearing, if your plans are feasible, or creating a structural plan for your contractor. Don't go taking out walls without seeking professional help such as a Texas licensed structural engineer.
Framing plans show the size, number and location of the structural members (steel or wood) in the home or building's framework. GreenWorks reviews structural framing plans to confirm adequacy of materials and design. We will verify load calculations and redline areas of concern. In addition, we can make recommended changes to cure deficiencies or value engineer your project. Our scope spans from floor, wall or roof framing plans.
ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN & DRAFTING
GreenWorks architectural designer can help make your vision into a reality. Only have a sketch on a napkin? No problem, GreenWorks can work with you to understand the concept and draft a full drawing of your project. Architecture design refers to the process of creating architectural visualizations for a building or home project. GreenWorks team encompasses planning the design, and then creating an architectural rendering to allow our clients to fully visualize the final result.
