The engineer than takes a note of all shortcomings and takes them into account while performing technical calculations.

Design: This is considerably the most significant step in the process. Not only does it involve the structural conditions and integrity, but it also incorporates the customer’s essential need of adding charm to the elements of the building. This is done in close correlation with architects who are better at designing and constructive utilization of space than engineers. Once that’s done, the compliance of health and safety regulations is ensured and the design is sent for approval.

Computational Analysis and Planning: The designing process is followed by a detailed computational analysis of the project. The material to be used, structural stresses and loading conditions are tested via simulation on several relevant software.
