With the efficient structural engineering design of permanent works being the backbone of our business, we can provide the following additional services tailored to meet your project needs.
As early adopters and avid users of Autodesk Revit, the industry’s flagship 3D modelling package, MPN has comprehensively developed and tailored the software and work in 3D on almost all our projects.
We use our models from the early stages of design, through to construction and retrofit phases.
Our customised platform allows us to resolve potential issues at the design stage and provide our Clients with a fully co-ordinated and detailed set of construction documents.
Planning is important in choosing appropriate structural systems especially if ‘fast tracking’ of the construction is required to achieve desired completion dates. The following items are typically considered – shoring sequence and methodology, excavation sequence, truck and crane operations, construction loading, ‘jump deck’ where a critical floor is built first with concurrent construction of lower and upper levels, ‘top down’ construction.
We can offer guidance and evaluation of a building to identify key structural and civil engineering issues ahead of final purchase negotiations.
Many projects include a review of documentation to advise possible alternative design solutions with the aim of minimising cost, maximising buildability and reducing building programme time while maintaining or enhancing quality, value and functional performance.
Prior to commencement of any construction works we recommend that dilapidation reports for existing structures and infrastructure adjoining those works be undertaken to protect the Client from possible future disputes regarding damage attributed to the construction.
