Structural Engineers Calculations
We have the capabilities to quickly provide structural engineers drawings and calculations without over compensating. Prior to having our own engineers we were reliant upon outsourcing our work and had little control over the design. We often found that engineers were designing to tolerances over and above what was necessary. Our engineering team use the latest software to ensure the calculations are adequate for the structural load, actions and forces but also aesthetically pleasing. We often use box frame or picture frame designs with a beam at the top bolted to two columns which sit on a ground beam cased in concrete. This increases strength thus allowing a reduced rolled steel joist (RSJ) beam depth or web. This in turn reduces the size of boxing in and increases head height.
