Bathroom Remodel And Kitchen Renovation

Two popular remodeling and renovation projects begin with a beautiful idea for a partial or complete bathroom remodel, and an open floor plan conversion for your kitchen. While your remodeling project may begin with updates that seem purely cosmetic, a structural engineer will be necessary for most bathroom remodeling and kitchen renovation projects.

Bathroom Remodel
Homes are designed to support loads based on the original plans in a specific way. If loads are shifted to areas of the home which weren’t designed to support them, this new weight can cause costly structural damage. Examples include moving a window, changing the shape of your shower or closet, adding or moving plumbing, and installing a whirlpool bath.

Kitchen Remodeling & Renovation
Kitchen remodeling projects often include design plans and beautiful renderings, and a structural engineer will be required to perform calculations and provide structural details. If your plan requires adjustments to a load bearing wall, the structural engineers at Fortress Engineering Group can design a beam and column system to replace the wall.
