From annoying to catastrophic, vibration can affect all buildings. Our vibration engineering team can map the dynamic behaviour of existing and potential buildings, identify design interventions or measures to minimise nuisance, maximise safety and provide dampening for critical environments.
Introducing vibration engineering expertise into our designs has resulted in innovative solutions that mitigate for the impact of vibrations arising from anything from machinery to vehicles to human activity.
Earthquakes and seismic activity can have a significant impact on buildings, commercial activity or livelihoods. With natural gas extraction also linked to seismic activity, the risk to existing buildings is evolving and the need for earthquake resilience becoming more widespread.
Our highly experienced earthquake engineers are not only able to design new buildings for earthquake risk zones but can also take on the complex and demanding task of assessing, adjusting and retrofitting existing buildings to ensure people and structures are protected.
With decades of experience and the expert application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), our team of engineers can shed light on how the flow of wind, and gases might impact your site, building or project. Helping you design for the causes at the outset, or remedy the implications via retrofit measures.
Whether helping avoid pedestrian discomfort or protecting the heritage of Netherlands’ windmills. We can take you beyond compliance to set the standard.
When significant damage to buildings and infrastructure occurs, the causes need to be identified quickly, lessons learnt, and preventative measures put in place. Our forensic engineers call on expertise from across our specialist advanced technology & research team, as well as their own depth of experience to deliver rapid assessments, suggest short-term measures and design a long-term solution.
Using a depth of expertise in structural safety as our foundation, we specialise in untangling the many layers of engineering to find the root problems – helping you fix it and giving you peace of mind.
