The Chartered Engineers within CHA provide structural assistance to our in-house design team. They also provide a direct design service to a variety of clients including property owners, building contractors and architects.

Robust and effective designs

Our designs always concentrate on simplicity and 'buildability'. This enables the works to proceed quickly and help to reduce the overall contract period.

All of our designs are carried out in accordance with British Standards, which provide recommendations for minimum requirements and take into account safety, quality, economy and fitness for intended purpose.

Our designs will also incorporate all information required to comply with Building Regulations.
