Structural Calculations Service

By Oak Beams And Frames Direct


We will take away your responsibility to ensure that the oak structure is structurally fit for purpose in your specific situation, create all necessary drawings for your specific project, submit for structural calculations to an accredited engineering practice and discuss any necessary changes directly with them in an effort to keep as close to the original price as possible.

Whilst all our oak trusses and oak framed garages are designed to be structurally sound, you will need structural calculations for all oak kits, specific to your location and situation. 

Various circumstances are taken into consideration when doing structural calculations, such as the position of the proposed building site, distance from the sea, elevation from the sea level, quality of the ground etc. For trusses, the size, the walls and the roof loading are important factors, which can vary with each client. This is why the final specification and ultimately price of each oak garage or oak truss can vary from what you have purchased.

These calculations can only be carried out once you have finalised what you want and you know where you will be building, supplying all required information to accredited structural engineers. You are responsible for either obtaining structural calculations from your preferred engineer, or you can buy this service through us.
