From cars and ships to bridges and skyscrapers, steel is one of the most common construction materials used around the world – and has been for more than a century.
Structural steel is integral to the ‘skeleton’ framework of most multi-storey buildings, whether through columns, beams, and cores or foundations and floor systems.
The strength, durability, and flexibility of steel is ideal for the fabrication of architecturally impressive structures, but steelwork design wouldn’t be possible without structural engineers.
Experts like RD Engineering are needed to carry out and refine the complicated analysis and calculations involved in creating structural steelwork design specifications.
With our help, steelwork designs can progress from conceptualisation to completion, achieving a robust and beautiful structure that both meets client needs and complies with regulations for structural steelwork in the UK and Europe.
Structural Steelwork Design
Steel design is a key part of structural engineering, as frames and pipelines of this material are implemented in all kinds of domestic, commercial, and industrial structures.
From high-rise buildings to aircraft hangars, train stations to sports stadiums, the design of structural steelwork is essential for urban construction projects of all sizes. It can incorporate not just the framework, but also elements such as walkways, mezzanine floors, stairs, and fire escapes.
Steelwork engineers like ourselves can work with teams of project designers, architects, and construction contractors to provide the most appropriate steel design solution.
Starting with the architectural design, we can assist with or fully manage the structural concept development, through analysis of the steel structure design to verification of materials and load conditions. Our specialist CAD software (computer-assisted design) ensures accuracy and efficiency for the design and planning of any kind of steelwork project.
