We have a highly skilled full time in house design department that has been established for over 2 decades and consists of Chartered Structural Engineers with substantial geotechnical knowledge and proven record in the design and build industry.
Our in house capabilities include; Structural, Civil & Geotechnical design expertise, together with some of the most advanced 2 & 3D FE modelling techniques in Europe. These capabilities enable us to combine experience and empirical knowledge with complex modelling to quickly assess many alternative design concepts and if necessary, make changes whilst efficiently value engineering each individual element of the basement construction according to client specific requirements.
Our designers all have the benefit of working on designs that become real live projects and receive continual feedback for the purposes of continual improvement. We are also unique in that we monitor settlement/movements on the systems we design for the purposes of continual improvement.
We are investing in instrumented foundations that provide initial and future measurement to assess substructure performance. This is factored into our designs to minimise redundancy
We have good relationships with the approval bodies and are able to react quickly and proactively to any unforeseeable changes.
We are constantly looking at new ways to improve design and provide further Value Engineering. Research & Development is therefore crucial and a key factor in our ability to complete the most demanding of projects successfully on time and within budget.
Holding several patents for construction methods and systems as well as NHBC approval, we are able to offer solutions to design issues that can be found nowhere else in the marketplace.
