Engineering & Construction

Engineering services relating to building design, construction and maintenance have formed a core activity, almost all Engineering firms and construction companies provide direct access to a team of highly qualified and experienced specialists offering consultancy services in preliminary work, building design, construction management as well as construction supervision and maintenance work.

These are present in almost every type of building project including, domestic housing, schools, hotels, sports centres, offices, factories, hospitals, and health centres.  From preliminary or structural designs for buildings and other structures to the design of HVAC, electrical and control systems, to developing fire safety plans and designing diverse acoustical solutions, specialists at most renowned firms have the knowledge to solve project challenges of any size. The design of new buildings may be divided into several phases. These include needs analysis, cost estimates, initial design and planning, final design, tender documents, assistance with choosing a contractor and consulting during construction.  For cost estimates, specialists can utilize the company’s own highly developed price database, which includes thousands of unit prices covering a wide spectrum of services and materials. The analysis and design of bearing and support structures are a vital aspect of all construction design and, often, ultimately determine the cost-effectiveness and quality of the final development.  Furthermore, how long a building lasts can depend, to a large extent, on the selection of the materials used in its construction and the arrangement of its support structures, which must be able to resist the external and internal forces to which they will be subjected, both about load-bearing capacity and rigidity.  All these aspects – design, materials, and arrangement of structural support – work in conjunction in any successful building project.

Successful building maintenance and renovation projects require experience as well as precise planning and execution.  A wide variety of factors must be considered and therefore such projects are often complicated and may require such elements as analysis, assessment of the type and level of maintenance involved, design of the proposed work, preparation of technical specifications and tender documents, cost estimates and assistance with choosing a contractor.  Such projects also require consulting services during construction, including construction management, supervision, and appraisal.
