MPN has designed many composite steel structures in the UK as well as in Australia, New
Zealand and the USA. This type of structures are typically chosen for their speed of construction, high degree of off-site fabrication, light weight and ease of construction. They are especially suited to additions and alterations of any size.
As early adopters and avid users of Autodesk Revit, the industry’s flagship 3D modelling package, MPN has comprehensively developed and tailored the software.
We have been using Autodesk Revit as our primary BIM (Building Information Modelling) platform and work in 3D on almost all of our projects. We use our models from the early stages of design, through to construction and retrofit phases.
The models primarily are used to create all our technical drawings in 2D but are also used for 3D visualisations to help communicate our designs to our clients and the rest of the design team.
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.
Efficient floor structures that are quick to construct are the key to successful high-rise projects. A shallow floor structure means that there is the possibility of additional floors within the planning heights. We use detailed 3-D lateral analysis software to optimise the core configuration. MPN have worked on projects in excess of 60 stories and have made a major contribution to the skylines of London and Sydney, amongst other cities.
