What does a structural engineer in Sevenoaks do?
As professional structural engineers in Sevenoaks, we work alongside civil engineers and architects to construct the framework of structures. With our expertise, we ensure they can withstand the pressures of their environment, can support the loads on them (such as people and equipment), and are stable in all weather conditions. We do this by using our extensive knowledge to:
Research & Analyse
Research and analysis are some of the most important parts of our role as a structural engineer in Sevenoaks. We use our extensive knowledge of physics and mathematics to predict the performance of certain materials (such as concrete and steel) and structural elements (such as walls and foundations) to ensure maximum safety, stability, and resilience by:
- Analysing blueprints and maps
- Analysing topographical (forms and features of land surface) data.
- Analysing environmental data.
This stage also allows us to provide estimates for the cost and quantities of materials, equipment, and labour. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for a FREE quote.
Plan and Design
Once we have completed research and analysis, we will devise plans for design and construction, whether it’s for a tall building, residential home or a bridge. We use high-performance computer-aided design (CAD) systems to create accurate, 3D designs of structures and infrastructures ahead of construction. This means that we can be sure that the finalised structure will withstand environmental stressors, will be sustainable, and economical and, most importantly, will be safe and functional.
As a professional structural engineer in Sevenoaks, we provide an end-to-end project management service. This includes providing Building Regulations and Planning Permission packages, plans and structural calculations, and advice and support at every stage of development. We will provide structural, detailed 3D drawings and calculations which will be used by your building contractor and/or architect during the construction process.
