Superstructure Design

We have significant experience in the structural design of superstructure

in all forms of construction materials and across a wide spectrum of sectors

such as Oil & Gas, Power, Petrochemical, Industrial/ Commercial, Nuclear,

Residential, Retail, Healthcare, Education and Rail.

Consequently we are able to offer alternative structural solutions during

the concept design stage, allowing the most beneficial choice to be

established whether this is to meet aesthetic, function, quality or cost

implications in the final construction proposals.


Importantly with our experience we can take a practical approach in

considering buildability, sustainability and safe methods of construction at

each stage of the design process.
