Structural engineering focuses on a building's load-bearing capabilities so that the structure can withstand its intended use. A structural engineer formulates innovative solutions to problems that arise and places great emphasis on safety. The job also requires creativity because structural engineers work with the aesthetic aspects of a project.
The expertise of a structural engineer is used on a variety of building projects. Anything that involves load-bearing walls or foundations may require a structural engineer’s input. Some project examples include:
Building a new deck or replacing an existing deck
Building an addition to a home, such as a sunroom, additional story, or bump out
Inspecting a home after a fire or storm to determine how much structural damage is present
Planning or installation of solar panels or other weighted objects
A structural engineer determines whether the wall being removed is load-bearing or not. If the wall is load-bearing, the structural engineer comes up with a plan to support the load during and after the project. When adding a wall, these professionals can ensure it supports any weight placed on it.
An architect works on the design and layout elements of construction. The structural engineer works to ensure that the structure is going to remain standing with normal use. In short, the architect is responsible for how the rooms look and the flow of the building. The structural engineer checks the integrity of the design and can inspect the structure after any potential damage.
