Whenever structural alterations are carried out e.g. removing a wall to make a room bigger, a steel beam is usually installed to carry the loads that were carried by the wall. Load bearing walls are usually masonry walls, but not all masonry walls are load bearing.
Structural alterations are covered by Building Regulations Approved Document A, therefore, structural alterations are subject to obtaining Building Regulations approval.
It is important to consult a structural engineer or architect prior to carrying out building alterations. A structural professional will be able to assess what loads are imposed, and which size of steel beam and masonry supports are required.
