Average structural engineering costs

When it comes to paying for a structural engineer to help you with your building project there is no set price to work from. As each of our clients will have varying individual needs our projects are completely bespoke and tailored to each client.

When we give you a quote for your project it will usually depend on the type, scale and complexity of your building plan. As a general rule of thumb, a structural engineer for a simple basic residential project could be around £350 to £450, but again this will depend on what you are planning to have done to your house.

The price you will pay for a structural engineer will depend on the complexity of your project. The larger and more complex the project, the more time and knowledge will be needed. However, we like to be completely transparent with our pricing you can get a GL Design Services expert on a fixed fee basis.

We will be happy to clearly state our fee structure in writing and itemise what is included. Find out more about our pricing or get in touch with our friendly team to discuss your needs so we can give you an idea of costings for your building project.
