Why things stand up is the business of the structural engineer. We take pride in our ability to design structures in practically all shapes and forms ensuring that they stand up safety and at a reasonable cost.
The firm’s commissions in the field of structural engineering are mainly associated with building design in which the structural engineer contributes his own particular skill, working closely with other professional consultants as part of a design team. The firm seeks through this teamwork to contribute to the overall quality of the built environment, whether it is in initial planning studies, design or the supervision of the construction works.
We take care to put value into the structures that we engineer for our clients.
The firm has provided structural engineering services to public and private clients for a very broad spectrum of projects. These include:
1. Cinemas, theatres and auditoriums
2. Dome, shell and folded plate structures
3. Hospitals and health facilities
4. Institutions, religious buildings, palaces and monuments
5. Military camps
6. Multi-storey and multi-basement car parks
7. Multi-storey offices, hotels and residential apartments
8. Recreation and community facilities
9. Schools, universities and colleges
10. Shopping and civic centres
Within the structures group, we are also developing skills in facade engineering. These include the design of new facades, facade diagnostic and remedial works and facade renewal.
We also have the advantage of having within the firm a well established geotechnical engineering group. Support is available for all geotechnical aspects of any structural engineering work.
Combined with our mechanical and electrical engineering group we can offer multi disciplinary services for any building projects.
And where necessary we can work with the worldwide Arup Group to deliver projects that are of exceptional scale and complexity
