Comprehensive Timber Engineering Services: Expert Design and Calculations for Timber Beams, Posts, and More


Timber Beam Design: Enhancing Character and Support

SECalcs specializes in timber beam design to add character to new buildings and replace deteriorated beams in older structures. Our experienced structural engineers ensure optimal support for floors while considering the significant difference in strength between timber and steel.

Choosing the Right Timber for Beam Construction

To achieve the best results, SECalcs carefully considers the use of reclaimed timber for larger beams. Reclaimed timber offers strength and reduced likelihood of shrinkage, making it a suitable choice. Additionally, when exposed timber beams support floors, we design them to meet the necessary fire resistance requirements by incorporating sacrificial timber components.

Comprehensive Structural Calculations for Timber Beams

SECalcs provides thorough structural calculations for timber beams, including fire resistance assessments where necessary. By analyzing the beam span, distance between adjacent supporting walls, and floor construction details, we ensure precise and reliable designs. Our calculations adhere to industry standards, including BS5268, and are suitable for Building Regulation approval.


Timber Post Calculations: Strength and Fire Resistance

SECalcs understands the importance of robust timber posts in construction projects. Whether as architectural features or replacements for deteriorated timbers, our expert engineers provide designs that ensure both strength and fire resistance.

Designing Fire-Resistant Timber Posts

When it comes to exposed timber posts, SECalcs prioritizes fire resistance in designs. Our team incorporates specialist paints or slightly larger post dimensions to achieve the required level of fire resistance. By considering sacrificial charring during a fire, we ensure sufficient timber remains to support the loads.

Thorough Structural Calculations for Timber Posts

SECalcs requires architectural layouts or detailed sketch drawings with dimensions to design reliable timber posts. This allows us to accurately assess loadings and create the necessary structural calculations. All our design work adheres to BS5268 guidelines and is suitable for Building Regulation approval.


Loading Capacity Assessments: Ensuring Safety and Stability

SECalcs offers comprehensive structural assessments to determine the loading capacity of timber floors. Whether for older buildings or those undergoing a change of use, our expert engineers evaluate floor joists, spacing, and load-bearing capacity to ensure safety and stability.
