Structural Design in Steel and Concrete

Although temporary works design forms the core of our business our structural engineering skills are also applicable to the design of permanent structures. We have designed many varied structures in steel, reinforced concrete, and timber for a number of clients. These clients have often been contractors undertaking work with a design and build element. This page is intended to give an indication of the breadth of our experience in this area.

We were engaged by Raynesway Construction Southern to design a tubular steel piled jetty with a reinforced concrete deck to enable them to submit a design and build tender to Associated British Ports.

We were engaged by Swift Structures Ltd. to design parts of the permanent floor slabs which they were supplying under a design and build contract. Their metal decking subcontractor provided designs for the slabs on metal decks and we designed all the slabs constructed on soffit formwork.
