Temporary structures like formwork, scaffolding, platforms and earth-retaining structures are not part of the permanent structure, more often than not upkeep and regulation of these structures is neglected in most constructions which may lead to catastrophic effects. We focus on temporary structure design, thereby, ensuring safety of workers and avoiding failure.

With Jacob Engineers handling structural analysis, you can rest assured of zero instances of failure. Our holistic approach ensures the stability of both permanent and temporary structures. We provide trusted and comprehensive temporary structure design for the highest degree of safety and stability.

Frequently Asked Questions

Construction support in structural engineering refers to the assistance provided by structural engineers during the construction phase of a project. It involves activities such as reviewing construction documentation, conducting on-site inspections, resolving construction issues, ensuring quality control, and documenting construction progress.

Construction support is important in structural engineering because it helps ensure that the design intent is properly implemented during construction. It helps address any construction-related challenges, ensures compliance with the approved design and regulatory requirements, and helps maintain the structural integrity and safety of the completed project.

Structural engineers review various construction documentation, including construction plans, specifications, and shop drawings. They verify the accuracy and compliance of these documents with the design intent, applicable codes and standards, and regulatory requirements. They also assess the coordination between architectural and structural elements to ensure a seamless construction process.

On-site inspections are conducted by structural engineers to monitor the progress and quality of construction activities. They assess the implementation of structural components, such as foundations, columns, beams, and connections, to ensure they are constructed correctly according to the approved design. On-site inspections help identify any construction deviations or deficiencies that may affect the structural integrity and assist in resolving them promptly.

Quality control in construction support refers to the activities carried out by structural engineers to ensure that construction materials, techniques, and processes meet the required standards. This includes conducting inspections, tests, and checks at various stages of construction to verify compliance with design specifications, industry codes, and regulatory guidelines. Quality control measures help maintain the integrity and reliability of the constructed structure.
