Everything Has To Be Individually Considered
The challenge of structural engineering with retail and leisure projects is that everything has to be individually considered; buildings vary in age, existing structural design features, locations are hugely varied, and the constraints can be very tight. We also understand the need for continuation of trade during any refurbishment works including phase works and have worked on many large projects that remained open to the public during expansion and refurbishment. We can work closely with the client and all associated parties to ensure that this happens safely.
Because of the nature of retail and leisure projects, clients will usually have a clear vision and aesthetic in mind and we work closely with the architects and interior designs to ensure their beautiful designs can and will work structurally.
Our use of digital construction design technology means we can model and put forward a variety of structural forms for consideration for a project, which will be compliant with relevant design standards and legislation but will respect the overall aesthetic.
