Structural Engineering Design


Whether you are an architect looking for an efficient structural engineer, or a contractor looking for designs with practicality in mind, Exeter Engineer works with you. We pride ourselves on having detailed knowledge of residential construction. Our practical understanding of building techniques allow us to design with both the end product and how to in mind.

We specialise in :

  • New Builds
  • Extensions
  • Loft conversions
  • Surveys
  • Knock-throughs
  • Steel and concrete design
  • Timber design


When adding an extension a property or altering it internally, we provide solutions for new openings and knock-throughs to ensure all the proposed and existing structure is supported and the overall stability of the building is satisfactory.


We have a detailed knowledge of how loft conversions are built. We design the structure to enable the space to be maximised for your client. by ensuring all steel and timber member sizes are optimised.


Steel and concrete beam design

Each beam is designed to use the optimum section size to keep the profiles low and weights down.

Timber beam design

From floor trimmers, to flitch beams & glulams, we know timber can be easier to work.

New floors, roofs and walls

Whether its a solid well insulated concrete slab that’s needed or a shallow lightweight timber loft floor, we design both and everything in-between.

Connection details (including low profile splices)

 Each splice joint is designed with the end use and ease of installation in mind.

Padstone / bearer plates

To make sure the beams are well supported and easy to install

Foundation design

Foundation sizes and details are specified when needed to ensure the superstructure is sufficiently supported.
