ONE’s inhouse structural engineering consultants provide the expertise that our clients and professional colleagues need to create innovative, economical and robust buildings and infrastructure.
Our clients benefit from a combined and fully integrated team of skilled Civil and Structural engineers that is adept at tackling complex engineering challenges.
We provide the full spectrum of structural engineering services and engineering management and work closely with clients and designers to form the key technical interface to the contractor. Our expertise in BIM removes any potential issues before any work on site and we always respond quickly to requests for support from site.
ONE’s inhouse Civil and Structural team members have extensive CVs having worked on iconic national and international projects with exceptional clients.
We have an experienced and qualified team of chartered structural engineers that have completed a diversity of projects: from small building extensions to huge multi-storey structures, and pretty much everything in between. Our in-depth knowledge of materials, methods of construction, and how buildings get built, has been honed by years of practical experience.
We don’t outsource projects, which sometimes happens in engineering companies, but instead they are completed by our inhouse UK based team who ensure the highest quality and that all the appropriate inspections and analysis take place.
Value engineering from the ground up
Value engineering is not the same as cost saving – we understand the difference and always work to “value engineer” right from the start. A lot of money is spent on risk and often the biggest risks to a project are in the ground.
The foundations of any building always carry risk and are expensive. Our team has saved our clients hundreds of thousands of pounds through the introduction of innovative ground improvement systems to overcome difficult ground conditions in a cost and time efficient manner. We also replace expensive piled foundations with specialist ground treatment systems to reduce costs, time and embodied carbon in the buildings we design.
We relish the challenge of making structures that are not only lighter and less greedy with materials, but also elegant, efficient and easy to build. That’s not just good for budgets; it promotes sustainability and is better for the environment.
Working across sectors
ONE has many years of experience across all sectors including healthcare with the Structural team having won the prestigious Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) Midlands award for Healthcare Structures and the Industrial category. We have worked on many fantastic residential developments, some really exciting projects for a range of high profile commercial, industrial and education clients and infrastructure projects. The team is also very experienced in working sensitively with historical buildings and those with listed status.
Whatever the project, you can rely on an innovative, cost effective solution that also considers sustainability as we work to decarbonise buildings through construction engineering.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) eradicates issues
Our use of technology means that site challenges and queries are virtually eradicated and our clients also benefit from the fact that we are Certified to BIM Level 2. Working in the virtual 3D environment, with our proactive Building Information Modelling (BIM) approach, our engineers can successfully translate designs through to the finished built environment. Our skilled engineers are, however, on hand should the contractor need support when on site to ensure the smooth delivery of a project.
When should you hire a structural engineer?
Involving our Civil and Structural Engineers at the pre-concept stage for engineering services can pay dividends and identify and challenge the constraints met by projects. This can open up new design possibilities and set achievable parameters that enhance projects through to construction. Whenever we join your team you can expect a proactive approach for the best possible solution.
Whatever the project, the team can help. You may be searching for a structural engineer near me to find a structural engineer or looking for structural engineers in London, however, whether your project is local to one of our offices (Worcester, Birmingham or London) or anywhere in the UK or overseas – distance is no barrier.
Contact us today for an engineering company that you can trust. Talk to a senior structural engineer or our Technical Director about your project, it would be great to hear from you and our team will fully guide you through the engineering design process.Back to services
