Investigation and compliance inspection reports

Structural engineers research and study structural elements and systems in order to create building designs and erect structures that will be useful and safe for people and the environment.

Structural engineers’ main concern is that of safety, technical, economic and environmental compliance, but aesthetic and social factors are also taken into consideration.

Structural designs created by a structural engineer include commercial and residential buildings, towers, bridges – even aircraft or ships may be designed by structural engineers.

The task of structural engineers is to make sure that constructions of any kind are built strong and stable enough to bear structural loads as structural failures can lead to loss of life or injury.

Structural engineering gives consideration to material durability, effects of deterioration and other factors of stress on materials and structure which could result in flawed performance and lack of stability over the design lifetime.

Building Design

We can design, document and project manage the construction of all types of residential buildings. We are expert in concrete, steel, timber and masonry. Consulting our team will lead to innovative yet simple design solutions that are feasible, sustainable and cost effective.

Types of residential buildings:

– high and low rise buildings
– luxury residencies
– single and double storey
– dual occupancies
– extensions and renovations
– decks, pergolas and carports

Types of floor framings:

– precast flooring such as ultra-floor
– suspended concrete slabs
– bondek, condeck and the like
– timber framing

Constructions And Renovations

ANH consulting engineers offer innovative and creative design solutions with affordable fees and fast turnaround. No matter what the ground conditions, we have seen it all, from construction of buildings on filled sites through to excavations into rock. We are experienced with waffle rafts, raft slabs, strip footing, piered footings and underpinning.Our vast experience and knowledge in structural design extends from new constructions to renovation projects and residential structures such as retaining wall and pergolas to floor extensions in large commercial entities.

You can view some of our past and current projects in the project section.

Footing Design

Soils that are not compacted will lead to a settling in the foundation of the structure which can lead to cracked plaster, masonry, drywall or structural failure if there is severe displacement.
No matter what the ground conditions, we have seen it all, from construction of buildings on filled sites through to excavation into rock. We are experienced with waffle rafts, raft slabs, strip footings, piered footings and underpinning.

Different types of soils have different load bearing pressures. Therefore, soil tests are often required before the footing design process can proceed.
There are all kind of soil such as such as sand, gravel, silt, sedimentary rock, and clay – all soils that are incapable of supporting larger loads will necessitate the installing a wider footing.

If the footing is inappropriate, the concrete can crack. It is therefore crucial to have proper concrete dimensions in order to ensure a stable footing. Precision calculation of floating dimensions for varying soil types, the structural sizes, and requirements of steel reinforcement are mandatory to ensure proper structural integrity.

Reports

As structural engineers we provide a wide range of investigations and compliance inspection reports. This includes pre-purchase reports for residential buildings and investigation of damage to buildings.

Pre-Purchase Structural Reports:

If a buyer has concerns with the structure of a property they are looking to invest in, we can provide a pre-purchase structural report that will give a highly useful and concise summary of the structural issues with the building

Dilapidation Reports:

We provide reports on the condition of the buildings adjacent to a construction site as a reference for identification of any movement or damage that is incurred during constructions.

Damage Reports:

Investigation of the cracks in building such as from foundation movement, undermining of footings and from other causes such as trees.
