Structural engineering design
The backbone of our business is creative structural design. We work very closely with a number of architects, developers and construction consultants providing a complete structural design package for a wide range of commercial and residential projects.
We are able to provide extensive drainage solutions for implementing sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS), pumping systems and storage chambers for both foul and surface water.
Our specialist team provide cut and fill volumetric calculations using our in-house 3D design software. We also provide ground retention design (retaining walls) utilising concrete, blockwork timber, Gabion walls and contemporary stepblock construction systems. We also design for Highways works including road and car park surfacing.
We work closely with geotechnical consultants as part of our structural design process. Their ground investigation techniques include window sampling and boreholes and inform our structural design foundation process.
Temporary works design
We are regularly instructed to provide structural design for temporary works for excavations. We also design supporting structures which secure buildings and facades during construction works.
we can provide building defect analysis reports and advise on façade treatments and remedial works.
Structural feasibility and concept design
This is very exciting part of our work and we take a positive and flexible approach to concept design. Our team works closely with a number of high profile consultants to ensure a collaborative approach, advising on structural feasibility and creating innovative and practical design resolutions.
We are regularly instructed to act as Checking Engineers and to ensure that projects designed overseas to Eurocode standards comply with the British Annexe standard.
Building Information Modelling (BIM)
We work to BIM level 3 on a number of projects and can bring together a full design team to ensure high level projects are delivered using the full project design software.
