Inspection of structural feasibility for floor addition by an engineer
The first step of a home extension project is the inspection of feasibility by a structural engineer.
Even before to do any sketches or plans it is necessary to know to what extend the existing building can add another floor and
at what price of structural reinforcements: addition of timbers, foundation piles, enlargement of footing, correction of foundation or others.
The engineer will take several measurements and if necessary will require the help of a specialized soil laboratory in order to better know the structure and its environment. Such as: ground test, measurement of the footing and of the foundation and the composition of the concrete, kind of wood frame building and of other existing structural elements. All these elements are necessary in order to know if structural reinforcements are needed prior to add a new floor.

Inspection of a home extension
The inspection of the structure during the work is an important step in order to be sure of the quality of the job
so a compliance letter can be written at the end of the work. Many times the clients are not present during
specific important moments of the construction, such as: the digging, pouring of concrete for the foundation and
during the assembly of the structure.
