About the service Addition/Renovation
Additions can be extensions to existing buildings to create more functional space or they can also be detached buildings to an existing developed parcel of land, but additions do not always require structural changes to the existing dwellings. Structural framing systems depend on building use, clear spans and architectural requirements, but typically additions to existing structures require the use of starter columns and if necessary enlargement of existing foundations for new structural loading. Detached additions use the same structural framing systems as low/mid-rise buildings. Renovation involve making structural changes to existing dwellings in order to increase functional space which can be the strengthening of existing beams, columns and foundations. Since these types of structural modifications involve alterations to existing load-bearing members, often times when attaching to existing concrete members, drilling and epoxying is required to anchor-in new framing members for strengthening purposes.
