Design and Analysis
This represents a broad spectrum of activities, comprising the design of components, structural elements and structures for:
Chemical and Water Treatment plant, Marine and Offshore: Aerospace and Defence; Civil and Structural applications.
The practice has experience in the design of a large variety of components and structures which include: structural frames; cylindrical and rectangular tanks to BS4994 and EN13121; multi-sphere tank system for underground storage; hyperbolic paraboloid roof structures; flagpoles; various process plant walkways; handrails and their associated structural support platforms, Marine Radome structures and the design and proof testing of cable tray system and support framework for the Channel Tunnel. Wind turbine blades.
