Our in-house team of structural engineers review the structural loadings for all proposed schemes to understand the true weight distribution across the building. Alongside an assessment of the proposed construction materials we are able to produce unique foundation solutions.
Once the true weight of the superstructure is known, our engineers model the ground floor with finite element support. This enables us to find the optimal reinforcement concrete slab and rebar quantities required for the foundations of the structure.
As part of our assessment of the superstructure, our engineers review the interaction that the edge of the slab will have, along with the proposed ground levels around the perimeter of the building.
This assessment allows for the edge of the slab to be detailed so that no concrete will be exposed around the edge of the building.
Strategic definition & Concept Design
Structural assessments are part of our concepting solutions
A study of the site investigation information along with geological maps enables our engineers to build ground models that identify the risks and opportunities within the soil profile across the site.
Further Site Testing
There are financial opportunities to be gained by carrying out further site testing. When such an opportunity exists our engineers will specify and undertake such testing.
Our in-house team of structural engineers assess the type and load of the superstructures to facilitate the optimal structural foundation design.
A key consideration to our proposal is build-ability, by accessing site constraints along with other site activities we apply a coordinated approach to ensure realistic deliverables are proposed.
