    Planning permission not refused, but will be - Anyone help?

    Afternoon, Thanks for your responses. We've managed to get a little more info out of the planner, and the changes that are at least being communicated are completely minor and could easily be rectified and not require a withdrawal and re-submission - Having said that, the planner is sticking...

    Planning permission not refused, but will be - Anyone help?

    Good evening all, Won't bore you with all the preamble - but to cut a long story short, done it all by the book with an Architect who submitted on my behalf etc, and we are now at a crossroads: The planning officer has not yet officially refused, but said it will happen - When asked why, they...

    Aternative to 152 x 152 x 30

    Whoops, forgot to add that bit. I had the calculations done about 6 weeks ago, but he’s in America now and is there for 5 or so months, does it every year apparently. Not a bad way to earn your crust, 6 months and on 6 months off. I did send him a message not realising and he told me he’s away...

    Aternative to 152 x 152 x 30

    Evening all, After a little advice around a universal beam (bear with me). To cut a long story short, some of our flat roof on the extension needs replacing so I'm taking this opportunity to completely renovate it all and also add skylights, insulation etc. We have had structural calculations...

    A few questions around BC

    Apologies for the delay, I have been away for a week. Many thanks for your replies. I have scanned in and posted the original plans. The structure is sound (well, seems it) and I suppose I could always look to install a flat roof instead which doesn't weigh as much. The reason I mention that...

    A few questions around BC

    Afternoon all, I recently (18 months ago) moved into 1920s solid brick house. The previous owners(s) seemed to have cut a few corners here and there. Anyway, I recently had a structural engineer in to advise on an internal wall removal (which turned out it wasn't structural, and wobbled when...

    Structural Engineer, Report, or Calculation

    Thanks for the response, I really appreciate it. I knew I would have to contact the council at some point, but I assume this is done before I commence any work but after the SE has been round. I will call a few companies and get the ball rolling. While the SE is here I will also ask them to...

    Structural Engineer, Report, or Calculation

    Evening all, I need to get some form of structural survey done but need clarification on what im asking for before I ring round local companies. So to understand where I'm at, I would like advice on a couple of walls and a chimney stack. One of the walls is actually like an archway (large)...

    Solid Wall Insulation - Which Solution?

    I have looked at the metal framing option (which is what seems most appropriate for the installation), and watched a video on youtube where it gets absolutely slated for being wrong so am still at a loss. Every website I visit seems to offer different advice on do's and dont's. After looking...

    Solid Wall Insulation - Which Solution?

    Afternoon all, Hope you are all well. I have been a long time viewer of the forums and had some great advice over the years, but the time has come for me to post my own query. At the start of the year, I moved into a 1920's solid brick wall house. I am looking to insulate it as it can get a...
