What Is A Structural Engineer?
A structural engineer is an engineer that specializes in building structure. They will design, plan, and look at the construction of structures such as buildings. A structural engineer will ensure that your construction project, renovation, or addition is well-built and designed to last. They visit the site for review, create drawings that show weak points of construction, and recommend adjustments. A structural engineer will often act as a consultant to an architectural designer or building contractor, calculating loads, defining the specifications of the project, and to decide which materials should be used in the construction of steel, concrete, and wood.
They determine the safety, strength, and durability of the building with full reports. They are the person that is responsible for the fact that the building stands. The design elements such as walls, columns, floors, and foundations, to ensure people, furniture, floor, roof are safely transmitted to foundations. They also provide drawings, calculations, and specifications on all projects where structural work takes place. The engineer should make a site visit and conduct an analysis before starting work on the drawings and structural calculations.
Because of the safety issues involved in their work, structural engineers must be trained to strict standards. Becoming a structural engineer takes a substantial amount of time and dedication- including a focus on professional development. Once qualified, however, the learning process continues as new methods and materials are introduced into the construction industry. They design homes and incorporate beams, columns, and foundations. Before the work begins they investigate and visit the site to see if the site is in good working condition as per the norms and planning.
They also have the responsibility to coordinate with other individuals such as architects and other engineers to ensure that they are working properly without any problem. Sometimes structural engineers need the involvement of government bodies also. They make the necessary arrangement for the delivery of goods and supervise the labor also.

When Can You Hire A Structural Engineer?
If you want an engineer to remodel or renovate your place it mainly depends on the size, complexity, and the issue that needs to be considered.
Small repairs won't require a structural engineer to look into your matter. But if you need assistance in removing a wall or adding a tub in your washroom that would require the guidance of a structural engineer.
Major renovations such as adding a new room, a new floor, stairs, a lift would definitely need the guidance of the structural engineer, and you should let him make all the reports like soil management, water management to decide if you can add a new floor or not.
Expanding your existing place and making more space is one of the latest trends in the market. But you need the right consultation about how you can expand your home and give it a new and spacious look.
Privacy is a very important factor. Every family member needs his room to live peacefully so do you. So adding a room is never a bad idea, but you should take a quote from your structural engineer first.
Sometimes your house won't be having enough space to expand outwards, so you add a floor and raise it vertically. The structural engineer will make reports on whether your existing foundation can hold more weight or not.
You must need a playing area or a guest house in your place, so you need to take the correct measurements with the help of a structural engineer.
