Our experienced structural engineers are mainly tasked with the development of the structure of your building. They ensure the stability, efficiency and suitability for use for each of our projects. The main area of specialisation of our structural engineers is to calculate the loads acting on the various components.
Some examples are:
- the self-weight of the structure
- the wind loads
- the snow loads
- the point loads (e.g. pillars)
- the payloads (e.g. people, furniture or machinery)
- the water pressure
- the earth pressure and possible earth movements
- the temperature
A so-called load calculation determines whether load-bearing components are able to absorb these loads adequate and sustainable. Prior to construction, an independent test engineer has to control these services in form of a documented static analysis and sign it as provided.
