STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND DESIGN
We can perform structural analysis on most structures.
Assessment of site conditions, interpretation of geotechnical reports and design of foundations. We can design all types of foundations including strip footings, stiffened raft slabs, waffle raft slabs, piles, bored piers and spread footings.
Design of reinforced concrete structures including foundations, slabs on ground, suspended slabs, retaining walls, columns, beams and other structural elements. We utilise a variety of spreadsheets and software including the finite element program ‘SLB’ for the analysis of slabs with complex loadings and geometries.
Design of structural steel members in buildings . We utilise the finite element analysis program ‘Microstran’ for general analysis and ‘Limcon’ for structural steel connections.
Design of structural timber members including beams, trusses and their connections.
WIND, SNOW AND EARTHQUAKE LOAD ANALYSIS
Determination of all types of loads on buildings and creation of structural support systems, plans and details.
We can conduct structural inspections when required on a job (subject to the Principal Certifying Authority’s approval). We can also inspect structural items on behalf of other structural engineering companies.
Design of bridges, timber, steel, reinforced concrete, composite, floodways etc.
General road design including junctions (BAL/BAR etc). Driveways. We utilise autodesk civil3D and can produce detailed longitudinal and cross sections. Cut / Fill earthworks calculations. Linemarking and signposting plans.
STORMWATER SYSTEM DESIGN
Residential roof drainage (eaves and box gutters). Stormwater systems of pits and pipes , stormwater detentions systems etc.
Design of water supply systems.
Subdivision design including associated stormwater, sewer and road design..
Design of sewerage systems. Design for sewer mains passing under structures.
Project management services.
WASTE WATER SYSTEMS FOR RURAL BLOCKS
Wastewater assessments and design of wastewater disposal systems.
EARTHWORKS PLANS AND SPECIFICATIONS
We can produce 3D models of existing ground surfaces and create design surfaces to allow the calculation of volumes an the production of sections. We utilise Autodesk Civil 3D.
SITE SOIL CLASSIFICATIONS
Site soil classifications to AS2870. We can classify your block in accordance with the standard when we do the slab design or we can provide a report for use by others.
SOIL ASSESSMENT FOR WASTE WATER SYSTEMS
Soil assessment for characteristics such as cation exchange capacity and permeability. Waste water assessments generally involve a visit to the site analysis of geometric constraints such as distance to boundaries, dams and waterways as well as the taking of soil samples for analysis. We provide a site plan describing the proposed wastewater system installation which can then be submitted to council.
SOIL AND WATER MANAGEMENT PLANS
Erosion and sediment control plans for smaller residential deveopments and soil and water management plans for larger commercial applications.
