Importance of a Good Structural Engineering Design

Posted on January 13, 2018 by Amy

The importance of a good structural engineer as the design can reduce the build cost
Structural design is the systematical analysis of the integrity, strength, and rigidness of a structure The fundamental aim of this investigation is to create structures that have the ability to withstand the varying amount of loads for the period of time which it is intended to serve its purpose and lifespan. The major reason for erecting a structure is to transmit or support loads. A structure that is poorly produced or designed will definitely fail to perform what it was created for, and this could lead to a very dangerous consequences.

In our contemporary world, there is high competition in the construction industry, and this brings issues about competency among several construction companies available today and ways to identify a good structural engineer. These are some valid points to note before hiring a structural engineer.

Firstly, the engineer should have a qualification as a chartered engineer or must be recognized as a part of the Institution of Structural Engineers (MIStuctE) or Institution of Civil Engineers (MICE) with substantial years of experience in that field. The structural engineer should be capable of creating designs and also providing a comprehensive list of the structural calculations so that it can meet the standard for approval by the Building Regulations.

A well-engineered structure greatly minimizes the possibility of costly failures. At this juncture, the need for a good structural engineer comes in to prevent construction woes before or after the building construction. Building your dream home or office could turn into a complex process and might not run smoothly as planned when you employ the service of an unqualified structural engineer. A proper structural survey should undertake a thorough research and planning before execution. However, a building survey entails more than just planning and researching it involves an elaborate analysis of the site, foundation, and a lot more. The surveyor also helps to tell the actual price and cost of items needed during the construction process and composition of the materials to produce a good structure that can stand the test of time be it a modern or historic structure. In a case where the said structure is not built from scratch, or the owner wants a basement extension to get more space in his home, the service of a structural engineer extension is employed to construct a basement extension for this purpose.

A knowledgeable structural engineer is one who knows how to do his calculations right, making complex projects look easier to construct and build within a stipulated timeframe without glitches. Whenever the service of a competent structural engineer is employed, cost of construction is greatly reduced because the engineer knows the accurate amount of materials required to use in the right proportion. This will eventually reduce the cost of building to a great extent.
