Buying joists for loft conversion

I am running my first project and wondering where builders buy cheap and reliable floor/ceiling joists steel etc for velux loft conversion in Bexley area. It would be good to get some suggestion and I can run around to ask for friendly quote which should pass building control regulation as per drawing.

You need to use C24 grade timber but this is not really a DIY job it needs to be looked at by an engineer.

As long as you have proper scaled drawings with the correct specifications for the required materials( these would be verified by building control) ,then any decent builders merchants will work out prices for you. You can then shop around with that as a guide to find the best value.
