Design

 

 

Three decades of design experience and technical expertise

 

With more than 30 years of design experience and technical expertise, we have a solid track record in designing highly specialised structures and equipment. Whether volume or bespoke design, our team of structures engineers and CAD designers bring enthusiasm, tenacity and innovation to every one of our projects.

Using the latest computer aided design (CAD), we specialise in steel lattice towers and monopoles for telecoms; steel structures for petro-chemical and manufacturing plants; steel buildings and offshore installations. Our expertise extends to the rail industry and the design of street furniture.

We’re also structural analysis experts, regularly carrying out strength, fatigue and frequency analyses to the Eurocodes, as well as wind, ice and snow loading calculations.

Our design service includes:

 

Strength analysis

Our expert structures engineers have a wealth of experience in this area, using both solid and beam finite-element packages to perform strength analyses to the Eurocodes.

 

Fatigue analysis

With years of experience in fatigue analysis based on the Eurocodes, we’re experts in welded steel structures and concrete foundations subjected to cyclic loads due to wind conditions and machinery.

Frequency analysis

We carry out frequency studies on our structures with the principal aim of limiting their exposure to fatigue. This is done using methods based on finite-element analyses.

 

Concrete foundation design

We design the reinforced concrete foundations for steel structures, using root foundations for small structures and pad foundations for larger structures such as lattice towers.
