Sites prone to liquefaction generally require robust foundations that can tolerate the ground settlements after a larger earthquake. We provide structural design services for this type of foundation. Typically, a site-specific geotechnical investigation report is required to start the design of these foundations.
We undertake the structural design of bridge structures that adhere to the NZTA(Waka Kotahi) Bridge Design standards. Civil and geotechnical investigations are a key component before starting the structural design of the bridge structures.
Retaining Walls Design
Retaining walls become important when building in sloping sites. Seismic earth pressures generally govern the design of these structures in New Zealand. We provide structural engineering design services for retaining walls around Hawkes Bay using timber poles, precast panels or reinforced masonry.
Industrial Building Design
These buildings are generally large span structures. Either hot rolled steel or form steel can be used depending on the specific project requirements. Sometimes precast panel walls are also required for these buildings. We can provide structural engineering design for these type of structures.
Commercial Building Design
We provide structural engineering design services for commercial building design. We work with architects, geotechnical engineers, building services engineers, councils and other professionals to achieve a better outcome for the project.
Residential Structural Design
We undertake structural design of residential houses. Often it is required to provide a steel portal frame to supplement bracing deficiencies. We will carry out these utilising the learnings from the damages due to the past earthquakes in New Zealand. We also undertake simple beam designs. Proper connectivity of beams to the foundations is essential.
Structural engineering is the design and analysis of safe and stable structures
Structural engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with the design, analysis, and construction of the physical and natural built environment, including buildings, bridges, towers, tunnels, and other structures. It combines principles of engineering, physics, and materials science to ensure the stability, safety, and durability of structures.
