What kind of projects do structural engineers work on?

Structural engineers are the specialists who design buildings and other structures that you see around every day like bridges, roads, and highways. While Architects design a building or structure from an aesthetic and functional standpoint, structural engineers design the all-important structural elements of buildings and structures so that they do not crack, move, or worse - fail completely. As you can see, structural engineering is an important part of the design and construction process.


Structural engineers are highly trained in areas such as physics, mathematics, and chemistry. Using these disciplines, structural engineers specify building materials and construction methods based on their ability to withstand various design loads under certain site conditions.


At Inhouse Consulting Engineers, our specialist structural engineers work on a variety of projects, including the structural design of new buildings and structures and designing alterations to existing ones. Our structural engineers will design your building or structure to ensure that they are safe, serviceable, cost-effective, and built to last under the toughest conditions.




Some of the buildings and structures we have designed over the past 30 years include:


  • Houses
  • Apartment buildings
  • Bridges
  • Dams
  • Storage tanks
  • Parking garages
  • Sports stadiums
  • School buildings
  • Churches
  • Health care facilities
  • Industrial units and factories, and
  • Landscaping structures and retaining walls




When designing renovations to existing buildings, our structural and civil engineers often team up with architects to design alterations to or remove of some of the buildings load-bearing elements. For example, when planning a first-floor addition to a dwelling, new load-bearing walls or reinforcements will need to be added. We recommend that architects work closely with our structural engineers early in the project to work out the additional loads and how they can safely add to the structure without causing any damage to the original structure and ensure a successful property development project.


However, all structures have a lifespan depending on a range of factors such as environmental and operating conditions, material choice, construction budget and method and maintenance and upkeep through the life of the structure. Inhouse Consulting Engineers can assist in extending the effective life of a building or structure when the structural elements deteriorate and the structural integrity of that element is compromised, it is our job to investigate the structure, the site conditions and recommend remedial works to reinstate its structural capacity.
