Structural Design Services
Professional Engineering Services Limited offers structural design services, as summarized below.
Foundation design is usually based on our own findings obtained by geotechnical investigations and determination of soil properties. Designs are developed with the aid of specialist geotechnical software, such as the GEO_5 suite of programs and are primarily based on the requirements of the International Building Code.
Concrete structures are designed based on the ACI and ASCE7 codes as applicable, and design and detailing are facilitated by in-house spreadsheet programs and the use of the BEAMD design and detailing program.
Structural steelwork is designed based on the ACI and ASCE LFRD codes as applicable, and design and detailing are facilitated by in-house spreadsheet programs and the use of the STRAP structural analysis program.
The structural design of building structures is carried out taking into account local building practices. Care is taken to ensure that designs are practical and cost effective by ensuring that construction requirements are consistent with locally available resources and skills.
