Given the variety of building materials used in the construction industry today, Engineers need to have broad consulting expertise. But many prefer to specialise in working with a particular type of material e.g. steel, concrete, light steel, masonry etc. This presents a challenge for clients who have projects designed using multiple materials. The need to seek the consulting input of several Engineers can potentially, add additional time and cost to the overall construction costs of any given project.
We have broad consulting expertise with a wide range of materials and a deep understanding of how various materials behave in certain conditions. In the event input is required from a Mechanical/Electrical/Geotechnical Engineer, we can liaise with them on our client’s behalf. We can also undertake liaison with other construction industry specialists such as Architects and Building Contractors.
As a result, we’ve saved our clients a lot of time and stress and provided them with the reassurance of a fair and accurate quote.
