Structural Design

Expert structural engineering designs and calculations

Your project may need structural designs and calculations as part of your building control application.

What is a structural design report?

A structural design report (also known as structural calculations) uses drawings and calculations to prove that the building work you are undertaking is structurally sound and that the finished building will be able to support itself under normal usage.

Structural design reports by CR Designs

Structural design reports by CR Designs are prepared by our experienced and fully-qualified structural engineers.

The report will include all the calculations and structural summary drawings required and will be ready to submit as part of the building control application in 2-3 weeks.

Planning drawings

When preparing your structural design report, our structural engineer can use drawings produced as part of our concept design & planning package or planning drawings you have had produced by a third party.

What is included in the structural design report?

The structural designs and calculations typically cover the following:

  • Structural elements, such as walls, beams, columns (including size and design).
  • Reinforcements, including the materials, such as concrete, steel or timber.

Submitting your structural design report to the council

If you are using CR Design’s building control package, we can submit the structural design report as part of your application.

We will prepare and submit the application to the council, or to a private building control inspector of your choice, acting your agent for the duration of the application.

Please note that building control application fees are not included in our packages.

If your structural design report has been prepared by a third party, we can also submit this as part of your building control application.
