On Site Management

If needed by clients, PDA can assist in the preparation of a programme of works to submit with tender documentation, using Microsoft Project.
Including Party Wall issues and compiling plans for home extensions. Documentation can be prepared for submission to the local authority by the client, or PDA can carry out the submission as part of a package of work for the client and obtain the necessary approvals for a scheme to proceed.
A variety of calculations can be provided by a Chartered Structural Engineer to assist Clients in fulfilling their project. A Brief can range from a simple beam calculation to a complete structure and involve different materials. Most commonly we provide calculations in steelwork, timber, masonry, and concrete e.g. in foundations.
Please contact PDA if you require calculations and we will send a questionnaire to assist you in determining what information can be provided by you (without an Engineer needing to visit). Alternatively we can visit the property and discuss the details of your requirements and outline what procedures and information we need to establish to complete the Brief from you.
For more complex schemes it will be necessary to hold meetings to discuss priorities in the delivery of calculations to suit the intended build programme. These will usually involve third parties e.g. Architects, Contractors, M&E Contractors.
