We undertake structural engineering design on projects involving construction materials including:
- Pre-cast concrete
We also look at not only steel reinforcing but also reinforcing materials such as glass fibre and glass rods.
These projects are within residential, commercial, industrial, coastal and mining industries.
We undertake structural engineering design on numerous projects that are considered unusual and just that bit
- works of public art for artists and councils
- special purpose structures such as cradle support for ships
- design of balustrade systems
- design of offshore navigational aides
- large cable stayed tensile shade structures
The gamut is vast and embraces temporary or light assemblies with minimal load to heavy fully engineered structures.
Our preferred structural analysis packages – Microstran for general analysis of most structures and the state-of-the-art finite element analysis package, Sofistik – give us the ability to analyse a vast range of structures, statically and dynamically, and Mpanel – a finite element analysis package for tensile shade structure analysis and design.
Footings are an important part of the stability of all structures and another element of our services. As part of the design we organise soil investigation and where required can undertake Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) testing.
