Party Wall Awards / Retrofit

Because

You have rights and responsibilities regarding your party wall as does your neighbour.

Your neighbour has powers to ensure that altered use of a party wall is done correctly, for instance if its height is increased or if construction of a basement lowers it.

As engineers we can provide in-house service for when more complicated situations are envisaged for instance changes to loadings or load-paths at a party wall.

Retrofit appraisal

Because

If you want to retrofit your house to improve its thermal insulation it is important to discover incipient defects whose development will be hidden and repair of which would be inhibited by external or internal cladding or other changes to the building envelope.

With loft conversions there can be added complications – we prefer working to an architectural design.
