We Provide the Best Service in Industry
Architectural Design Technology
Technology has changed nearly everything about the way that people in society exist and function. From smart phones to the Internet, technology has transformed the world in just a few decades time. For architects, home builders and home designers, technology has taken a front seat in the experience of designing and building a structure. From start to finish, technology affects the way that architects design buildings and even the way that clients experience the design process. Technology can improve building efficiency and durability, while making it easier for architects to more accurately render a building design
Structural Engineering Design
Structural design is important in civil engineering because it helps to check that the structure is safe. Structural design gives all the vital information regarding foundations, floors, walls, beams, roof types and the quality of materials to ensure that any of the structures built meet all the safety requirements. It is crucial for structural engineers to go into design aesthetics and come up with structures that are able to withstand pressures and loads without causing any mishaps. A structure with no structural design consideration will always have a high chance of failing. As such, structural design is crucial in all construction projects as this impacts the durability and safety of the structures directly.

Planning permission takes several different factors into consideration in order to assess the suitability of a proposed build, and examples of these components include the potential loss of privacy, any concerns regarding traffic and parking, the impact that a build may have on nature and the natural environment, and the design and appearance of the structure itself. Choosing to build without planning permission is known as a breach, and may be dangerous if a building is constructed on unsuitable soil that leaves it susceptible to subsidence. In these circumstances, the local authority may intervene and enforce a notice to remove the structure should they decide that the breach unacceptably affects public amenity and safety.
Flood Risk Assessments
We are experts in flood risk, water and environment, specialising in flood risk assessments, surface water drainage strategies and flood modelling.
Without a Flood Risk Assessment, your planning application could be rejected. Each of our Flood Risk Assessments is tailored to your development, meeting all local planning requirements, to help you better understand and mitigate the risk of flooding to your site.

Building regulations are conditions, the building must adhere to in order to meet the Building Control requirements. We understand that you may not have had construction experience, however, here at WeStruct Design & Build we do all the work for you and let you as the customer dictate how your building unfolds.
Building regulations are overall the set standards for the design and construction of buildings to ensure the health and safety of people, including those with disabilities. We work in partnership with you, to guide you through the process of getting Building regulations approval certificate to ensure the successful completion of your project. All our members of staff are qualified professionals with many years of Building Control regulations experience both in the public and private sectors.
Approved Document A (Structure)
The structural design covers the foundations, ground floor slab, walls, walls removal, sizes and supports for new steel beams or steel frames (e.g. goal posts or box frames), lintels specification, joists sizes spacing and layout (for floors and roofs), trimmers around stairs or skylights, chimney support steels or gallows brackets, specifications for materials to be used, requirements to ensure stability and prevention of disproportionate collapse (vertical straps, lateral restraint straps, vertical and horizontal ties) and other requirements for compliance with Document A.
Approved Document B (Fire)
The specifications will set out requirements to provide fire detection, means of escape, measures to limit the spread of fire and reasonable access and facilities for the fire service.
Approved Document E (Sound Insulation)
The specification would cover acoustic performance details. This is usually applicable to residential developments of flats but we recommend that it is also incorporated in all dwellings to improve acoustic performance. This will reduce vibration, control noise travel, improve the quality of the dwelling and add to the property value.
Approved Document F (Ventilation)
The specifications would provide details to ensure proper ventilation and meeting the requirements for air-tightness. This aims to provide fresh air, remove CO2, remove airborne pollutants, remove excess moisture, remove excess heat and provide air to fuel-burning appliance.
Approved Document H (Drainage and Waste Disposal)
The specifications will deal with requirements of foul water drainage, wastewater drainage, rainwater drainage, building over sewers and solid waste storage.
Approved Document L (Fuel Conservation)
The package will include construction details and specifications for the insulation of the floors, walls and roofs. We provide details that are in compliance with the enhanced accredited construction details and ensure the meeting or exceeding the required U values.
Approved Document M (Access)
The package will include details to provide access and alternative means of access to all potential users of the dwellings and other building types. Our specifications and construction details aim to comply with Part M by addressing specific user needs, enabling disabled and older occupants to maximize their own individual abilities, minimizing adverse effects resulting from reduced mobility, facilitating independent living.
Approved Document P (Electrical Safety)
The package will include details for the safe installation of electrical appliances as well as routing and locations of switches, sockets, and cabling. It also allows for self-certification when applicable.
Construction is one of the world’s largest industries. Whether building a new bridge or a skyscraper, you need a construction engineer to supervise and complete a project. The management and delivery of construction projects are simply referred to as construction engineering. A ‘construction’ is defined as any building project used for residential, commercial, or industrial purposes. Construction engineers are civil engineers who have received training in the field of construction management.
Most construction engineers make use of computer-aided design software to design infrastructures like residential housing, bridges, skyscrapers, industrial warehouses. They also apply their project management skills to gather detailed reports on the feasibility and cost estimation of a construction project.
