Structural engineering is crucial for buildings and other structures such as bridges and railway lines. It involves taking into consideration materials, structural elements and intended functions to produce designs that prioritise stability, strength and rigidity. Well-informed, detailed and accurate structural engineering ensures structures are durable, suitable for their purpose and make efficient use of materials.
RSK’s land, development and engineering (LDE) team and RSK subsidiary companies Acies, CWA and KMG Partnership offer comprehensive structural engineering services to a wide range of projects. We provide input to our clients throughout the life cycle of their schemes, from land acquisition and feasibility stages, through planning support and the procurement process, to the production of full working drawings for construction. By applying the expertise of our skilled team, we consistently provide bespoke, cost-effective solutions to complex challenges.
We undertake structural engineering design for a variety of clients including residential and commercial developers, local authorities, property owners and architects, and take a proactive approach to challenges. Our in-depth understanding of development processes, and broad range of experience, enables us to fully understand our clients’ needs and design solutions tailored to their project.
Development projects often require clients to manage a wide scope of risks and challenges, including budget restrictions, planning and building regulations and unforeseen ground issues. Our experienced team has a deep understanding of these issues and produces flexible designs to allow for obstacles. We identify potential risks at the earliest possible stage and work closely with clients to mitigate them.
Experienced and reliable
We have the skillset to undertake work on development sites ranging from greenfield to urban regeneration schemes in the heart of inner cities and are fully conversant with other forms of construction, including modern methods of construction such as hybrid precast frames, and panelised and modular construction. Our team is experienced in a variety of site surveys, from aging buildings being considered for refurbishment and conversion to river walls that require assessment of stability and future life expectancy. We apply our expertise to aid clients in achieving regulatory approvals, including building regulations approval and asset protection agreements. RSK offers structural engineering services as part of a wider range of services, which includes civil engineering, architecture and town planning, and building information and modelling.
Our clients trust us to provide thorough services based on a deep understanding of project and developer needs and extensive experience in a wide range of construction sub-sectors. RSK understands the individuality of each project and produces solutions tailored to the specific requirements.
