Discussion of project requirements and limitations. From initial correspondance via email/calls to site visits and meetings, aleur associates ensure the project brief is defined and clear from the outset.
Once the "go-ahead" is given to our formal quote, aleur associates promptly begin design of a preliminary scheme with full calculations for consideration by all parties including the client.
All amendments and comments are incorporated into the package. aleur associates finalise the structural scheme with calculations for building control (Building Regulations) submission.
The structural package (Design calculations and drawings) is now ready for submission to all parties. Contractors can confirm their final quote for constructing the build.  Party wall surveyors can proceed with their award. Construction shall begin soon after.

Mezzanine Floors

Where headroom is generous, multiple levels can be the right solution.

Mezzanine floors enable an even more practical and large floor space to be utilised. Whether it is a commercial office space development, or creating more room at home as part of a residential development, we design the full structural steelwork, beams and posts,  with connection details and footings specified as appropriate. 

We work closely with the steel fabricator and contractor to ensure the most economical scheme is produced as per site conditions.

Temporary Works

Working in close correspondence with your contractor, we ensure the structural elements are installed in a safe and sound manner. Full construction method statements (CMS) and design brief supplied.

With aleur assocuates, our in-house temporary works engineers can work closely with the permanent works engineers to ensure the design is the most economical possible. Thus saving you money.

Listed Buildings

aleur associates ensure a sympathetic approach is undertaken towards the conservation and restoration requirements of listed buildings.
Repairs should be traditional and materials shall be in keeping with the existing fabric of the building structure where possible. Original features must be conserved. A conservation engineering approach generally leaves the structure of the building, historically correct but stable.

​Our consultants offer specialist engineering services for the assessment of historic building structures and for the design of sensitive structural solutions for their restoration, adaptation and repair

Site Supervision
We provide site supervision during the construction phase of a project. A number of pre-agreed site inspections are undertaken with reports to ensure the ongoing build accurately reflects the initial brief and design. Regular site visits also ensure site queries are dealt with quickly and contractors can continue with the build in an efficient manner.
