Structural design

At HA Consulting Engineers we have over 35 years of in depth experience in structural design. Our projects range from multi-million pound developments, to domestic extensions or loft conversions, down to single lintel or beam installations.

DESIGN PROCESS ON A VARIED SCALE

Steel frame analysisA complete design service is a common request, and after assessing the size and complexity of a project we can easily ascertain the type of information package required. For smaller scale domestic jobs we usually produce a formal set of calculation sheets often including hand drawn sketches, clearly specifying exactly what is required with regard to that individual project. These documents serve as a record for the client, as well as a submission for building regulations approval. Also they are useful for builders or contractors as a general guide to what they need to put together on site. Where more detail is required, fully scaled technical drawings outlining every aspect of the job can also be produced using our AutoCAD technical detailing software.

Load case comparisonFor larger scale projects we also work in partnership with major building contractors, key departments of neighbouring councils, distinguished local architects and national commercial corporations, as part of a fully functional design team. Our wide range of the latest computer software enables us to develop extensive models of any structural form, which can then be analysed under several diverse conditions.

DIFFERENT PROJECT - DIFFERENT APPROACH

Multi-storey RC FrameWhatever the scale of the project, the structural design service we provide is specifically suited to each individual project and client. We adopt a pragmatic approach when advising clients and other members of a design team to help find the most practical solutions for the development of any particular structure, from an engineering standpoint. This may occasionally alter the basic design of the building slightly, but often leads to noticeable financial savings during the latter stages of construction.

Our in house design teams can supervise a project from inception through design development and on to completion. Being available through every stage of a build enables other external parties, such as architects or contractors, to get answers more efficiently, and gives the client a constant source of sound engineering advice.
