Value engineering is a multi-step process and an integral part of the design stage of a new structure. It is aimed at increasing value, defined as function divided by cost.
Our experience shows that incorporating value engineering into our design and construction process results in reduced costs and greater added value for our clients.
Requirements for heavy lifting systems are shaped by the size and complexity of the lift, the working environment and available space. Safety is a key factor in planning heavy lift projects.
Our full project management service means we can plan and execute complex civil engineering heavy lift and transportation projects safely and to tight timeframes.
Post tensioning, which is a form of prestressing, has several advantages over standard reinforcing steel as it reduces cracking, therefore fewer joints are needed.
Our post-tensioning systems includes a range of anchorages, accessories and the necessary equipment to respond to the technical requirements for the construction of building, bridges and other structures. All multi-strand components have been designed and tested in accordance with the European code ETAG-013, enabling us to deliver world class technologies and systems to every market we service.
Stress bars are a very effective method of inducing and controlling loads and forces in structures. To allow connections and anchoring, a thread is that runs the length of the bar is installed during the manufacturing process.
We supply and install the full range of stress bars for applications including post tensioning, soil anchorages and rock nails, formwork materials and fixing systems for bridge barriers.
Structural strengthening is required when a structure’s load bearing element is under pressure due to changes in applied loading conditions or because of poor construction or design inadequacy.
strengthening an existing structure requires expert knowledge and strict compliance with application processes to assure structural integrity and we are highly experienced in the installation of structural strengthening systems, including code compliance works.
