Our engineers go through a meticulously detailed appraisal of the structure and materials to be used for the build, to understand the true weight of the building and allow them to remove any over allowance beyond what is required. This ensures that the most economical foundation design can be achieved.
This process allows for a detailed understanding of where loads will be distributed across the foundation, resulting in a stronger and more efficient foundation. Carrying out these calculations can save time and money in the long run, and help to ensure the safety of those using the structure.
Finite Element Modelling
Our engineers use finite element modelling to ensure the most efficient pile and reinforcement arrangement is achieved, which can further reduce costs. This iterative process helps ensure that the foundations of your building are designed correctly and will be able to support the weight of the structure.
This detailed process significantly reduces over spend associated with over engineering, while ensuring that your building is stable, safe and complies with the relevant building codes and warranty provider requirements.
Structural calculations are an important part of any foundation scheme.
Structural Calculations help to ensure that your building is stable and safe, and that it complies with the relevant building codes and warranty provider requirements. This detailed process can significantly reduce overspending on over-engineering, while still ensuring that your building meets all the necessary safety standards.
If you are a house builder or architect, it is essential that you understand the importance of structural calculations in foundation schemes, and how they can benefit your development.
Structural Calculations are part of our design engineering solutions
For all projects we provide detailed supporting calculations for ground engineering methodology, anti-heave precautions and ground gas assessment.
High-level structural calculations from our concept design are detailed out using Finite Modelling to ensure optimal load across the structure.
