At Insight Design, we extend comprehensive structural design services to help you efficiently design, analyze and collaborate with architects and MEP engineers.
Our structural engineers develop efficient 3D structural detailing plans to assist contractors, EPC firms and steel fabricators in erecting facilities of immense strength. We aid sheet metal fabricators and plant owners by developing 2D drafts and 3D CAD models for metal structural element such as glazing, claddings, enclosures, etc. and improve their productivity.
Our team of structural designers and steel detailers delivers steel detailing and rebar detailing plans for angle section, roofs, trusses, columns, foundation and every other critical structural element in the building. Our hands on expertise with detailed structural design in Tekla and structural 3D modeling in Revit allow us to deliver flawless structural designs.
We provide detailed structural steel drafting services to structural engineers, architects, engineering firms, contractors and steel detailers. Our services enable multi-disciplinary coordination, and empower contractors to practice modular construction and increasing on-site safety. May it be design development, schematic design, construction documents or shop drawings; we assist our clients across building design development phases.
we have the extensive domain experience, knowledge of industry standards, and well-trained engineers who understand Structural Engineering Services and are innovative in their solutions. While endeavoring to maintain international standards in quality, our engineering team strives to reduce product design cycle time while ensuring cost-effectiveness. Being a leading structural engineering design service providing company, our strategic approach allows us to develop well-engineered building designs with improved look and feel. We follow a customized process for every single structural engineering project.
The files can be sent in any graphics format like TIFF, JPEG or PDF. Paper drawings can be couriered to our office. AutoCAD drawings may be emailed to us for 3D modeling and animation.
We follow the standards you set. We can also use default standards such as the AIA guidelines.
Communication can be done by email, phone, fax, or online chat. We can also set up an FTP transfer for our clients.
The paper drawings can be scanned starting from 150 DPI – 200 DPI, and the most important part is the clarity of the information sent.
A Structural Engineer can perform a range of services to assist you in the assessment of your home or to assist with the design of your home projects. Whereas an Architect may design the appearance and layout of a property, a Structural Engineer can perform design checks using various structural products and materials to ensure the proposed works are structurally safe and buildable. All of our design work is carried out in accordance with relevant Building Regulations and British Standard Codes of Practice and we can provide any necessary calculations or drawings..
Structural surveys or inspections are carried out for a variety of reasons including the assessment of structural defects, general condition surveys and pre-purchase surveys, looking at the feasibility of proposed alterations and extensions and for insurance purposes following a fire, flood or collapse. Structural Engineers can also advise on works required to comply with the requirement of the Building Regulations.
The type of inspection or survey would depend on your particular requirements and may range from a non-intrusive visual inspection through to a more intrusive structural survey. A non-intrusive inspection is where a trained engineer will visually assess your property both inside and out to look for evidence of structural problems e.g. structural movement or decay. An intrusive survey is more disruptive and would involve the use of a builder to carry out some opening-up works to remove internal finishes and dig trial holes to determine the existing foundation construction. In the first instance, we would usually recommend a non-intrusive visual inspection as this would be sufficient in the majority of cases. We would normally only recommend an intrusive survey where there is evidence of structural problems and we are not able to determine the cause of these without further investigation.
Note that we are Structural Engineers and our inspections and surveys are normally limited to structural elements only i.e. we will not comment on electrics, plumbing, fixtures and fittings, or finishes. We would also refer you to the services of our fellow professionals where the required inspections are required to go beyond our own area of expertise e.g. it would be necessary to appoint a timber specialist where a timber and damp survey is required.
If you are concerned about the structural integrity of your property or have been advised by a third party to obtain a structural report e.g. by a mortgage lender, then we suggest you contact us to discuss the matter further with one of our engineers. If we think a survey is required, we will guide you through the process and advise the type of survey we think is most appropriate to you. If we think that your problem would be better dealt with by another construction professional e.g. an architect, we would be happy to point you in the right direction.
Where it is proposed to carry out structural alterations to a property we would normally recommend an inspection is carried out in advance of any works being designed. The inspection allows us to record the arrangement of existing walls, floor, roof, beams and lintels so that we can accurately design the proposed works. The starting point of any works to an existing property should be a thorough understanding of the existing structural form and behaviour of the property.
If you are proposing to buy or sell a property and are concerned there may be structural problems, then it would be advisable to appoint the services of a Structural Engineer. A structural inspection report will give you peace of mind that there is nothing significantly wrong with the property or make you aware of any structural problems that are likely to cost money to put right in the short or long term.
If you are proposing to make changes to your property e.g. internal alterations or an extension, the services of a Structural Engineer will likely be required. Usually, we become involved once you have chosen an Architect and he has developed plans for the changes. If you have architectural plans for the proposed works or you think that an architect is not required and would like to speak to us about your proposals then one of our engineers would be happy to discuss your project further with you.
The cost of providing structural engineering services very much depend on the complexity of the project and how much time we need to spend preparing drawings, calculations, reports and visiting the property. Fee levels for all of our projects are calculated on a time basis and in the majority of cases, we will be able to advise you in advance of the full cost of our involvement.Structural calculations and drawings :$10/hrs
