Civil and Structural and Engineering
We thrive on a challenge and embrace modern construction techniques to meet our clients’ specific requirements.
Our aim is for shared success, and to achieve this we have created and developed a strong and vibrant professional engineering services team.
Our experience and expertise allow us to work across any sector and deliver the very best results for residential, retail, commercial, education, leisure, healthcare, later living, local housing authorities, blue-light, custodial services, maritime, marine, high-rise, stadia and more. Holding high-end capabilities, we use only the latest software to deliver our fully considered and coordinated designs.
Combining the skillset of our muti-disciplinary design, cost consultancy and project management teams, we have the ability to deliver all projects in a collaborative BIM environment, regardless of whether one or all of our services are procured. We also have access to the most advanced 3D modelling software, allowing our team the ability to develop a unique and efficient design solution to any constraint proposed by site, client or environmental factor.
– Proficient in the use of BS and Euro code design
– 3D design modelling capabilities in a range of materials with full access to the latest software
– Full understanding of all building materials and construction methods
– Full range of expertise in all major sectors, including: Commercial, Retail, Residential, Mixed use, Custodial, Leisure, Healthcare, Maritime, Marine, High Rise, Stadia … and more.
– Engineering Input to pre-planning application works
– Flood Risk Assessments
– Highways Design
– Drainage Design
-External Works Design
– Earthworks Modelling / Cut & Fill Analysis
– Utilities Coordination Plans
– Conveyancing Plans…..and more.
Recognising Building Information Model (BIM) goes beyond technology, we utilise this model to create a collaborative environment in our workplace allowing a design to develop into cost effective and practical project delivery throughout the building lifecycle.
We use a range of software to deliver projects using BIM, these include:
Autodesk Revit Structure – Tekla BIMsight – Tekla Structural Designer – Autodesk AutoCAD – Autodesk NavisWorks – Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis.
3D Modelling & Dynamic Analysis
We have the capability to find our clients the most proficient design solution –whether ranging from a simple truss or braced steel frame to high rise structures or complex large span frequency sensitive framing, we have the capability to find the most proficient design solution. Our application of this process in the design and detailing of reinforced concrete structures enables us to efficiently size flat slabs and other RC elements, along with minimising scheduled reinforcement rates due to specific and localised determination of hogging and sagging forces.
Deformation is extensively analysed in addition to crack widths preventing any permanent disfigurement of the structure or over specification of material. Expedite are also in the position to perform intricate scrutiny of specialised dynamic sensitive structures such as stadia, hospitals, universities, etc. where limits on natural frequencies are imposed by circumstances such as end user comfort ratings or the housing of sensitive equipment.
We are also able to resourcefully design complex structural components such as long spanning members, large 3D trusses, space frames, transfer structures – and more.
From the simple to the complex, Expedite holds the capabilities to assign the correct and most effective team to any proposal ensuring our clients achieve the most effectual output upon delivery.
