Historical Renovation

At LeeMcCullough we have exceptional experience of revitalising existing buildings, which is often more complex than the structural engineering of new buildings.

Over many projects we have addressed and resolved a wide range of issues, including:

  • Strengthening historical joists and beams to carry increased loading
  • Masonry Decay/Delamination
  • Threading modern services into old structures

At LeeMcCullough we always seek to identify and resolve issues early, innovatively address demanding building difficulties and deliver our solutions on time and cost efficiently.

When it comes to renovation and refurbishment, anticipating and resolving engineering issues effectively is the key to a successful outcome.

LeeMcCullough - Fire Damage

Whether a fire damaged structure is a historic building or a modern construction, the ability of the Engineer to judge the extent of damage to structural elements can mean the difference between demolition and practical reuse-if repair and reuse can be justified, considerable savings can accrue.
