DESIGN

Foundation Design
Our geotechnical engineers will assess site conditions and available site information, advise on the most appropriate site investigation procedure and prepare the associated foundation design. We will advise on ground improvement procedures to minimise foundation size and also eliminate piled and deep foundations where appropriate.

Structural Design
We have extensive experience in the design, administration and supervision of structural projects. Projects include commercial, industrial, leisure, education and health, as well as civil engineering structures.

Civil Engineering Design
We provide drainage design, watermain sizing and network design, SUDS design, harbour engineering design and civil engineering structures. We have extensive experience in the water and wastewater sectors, including concrete design to Eurocodes, reservoir design and hydraulic design of water and wastewater treatment plants.

Architectural & Building Engineering Design
Within the company we have the expertise to provide our clients with cost-efficient and focussed architectural and building engineering design. Our multi-disciplinary approach provides solutions with reduced life cycle and capital costs. We design buildings to be energy efficient, elegant and compliant with all building codes.

Project Management
We offer expert project management advice on project design, construction and ultimate delivery. We have a vast experience within all major sectors, including commercial, retail, education, housing, infrastructure and industrial.

Building Information Modelling
All new large buildings and structures are designed and modelled using the new BIM Revit software. It allows for complete co-ordination and virtual construction of the project in the design office prior to tender and construction. It ensures enhanced co-ordination of all disciplines, fewer errors and a reduction in the costs associated with planning, design and construction. A full 3D model with actual material properties included allows for quick take-offs and full design.

Sustainability Solutions
We provide advice on sustainable master planning, green building design and the use of natural and renewable resources in building design to minimise energy usage.

Temporary Works Design
We have prepared temporary works designs for many of the leading contractors in Ireland and the UK. Temporary works design include lifting techniques, shoring of deep basements, propping of existing structures and may other temporary works solutions.

BER & Thermal Imaging
We provide BER design and assistance for existing and new houses. We have in-house thermal imaging photographic equipment available to assess the insulation needs of our clients.
