Hi need some advice please regarding putting a steel between kitchen and dining room as making the two rooms into one. What is the normal process/procedure/order of works regarding size of steel? (Who determines size) When to contact building control?
I am not a builder but am capable of carrying out the works, just need a bit of advice. Many thanks for your help and comments.

First port of call is get a structural engineer around to look at job and do the calculations and drawings of what you’ll need.

Thanks for replying. Once they decide on size, contact building control or do they come and look once in place?

It depends where in the country you are. You need to get a building warrant and notify building control but some will accept photos instead of coming out. The structural engineer himself may inspect the work before it’s covered up tho.

And don't forget to include and retain the structural engineers calculations when you send them to BC.
Structural engineer fees are not cheap ( £1000 - £2500 ) but you will forever have problems if you don't get it all rubber stamped.
