Structural Design

Why Structural Design is Important?

The foundation of any enduring civil engineering marvel lies in its structural design. The primary goal of structural design is to craft structures that are capable of withstanding the forces of nature and time. A well-executed structural analysis and design ensure that a building can bear all applied loads throughout its intended lifespan. 

The repercussions of an inadequately designed structure are evident – from high repair costs to the gravest consequences, including loss of life. Therefore, the importance of structural design cannot be overstated.

Nexus Engineering – A pioneer structural designing firm. We design structures that are stable, durable, and cost-effective. Our unwavering commitment to designing resilient and cost-effective solutions makes us stand out in the competitive market. 

Nexus Engineering Structural Design Process

Nexus Engineering Structural Design Process

Nexus Engineering offers a transparent procedure that we employ in our structural design. 

#1 Initial Consultation

The design process commences with an initial consultation phase where we engage in discussions with clients to gain insights into their vision and requirements. We prioritize active listening to make sure their goals align with our design objectives. We determine the type of structure required namely, residential, commercial, or industrial. Furthermore, we define the project’s purpose, goals, and objectives and also take into account budget constraints.

#2 Conceptual Design

The conceptual design phase is where the architectural vision starts to take shape. We proceed to collect essential site data including soil conditions and environmental factors. In case of a renovation project, our structural engineers review existing site conditions and examine existing structures. Next, our BIM modellers develop a preliminary design. At Nexus Engineering, we strive to present clients with a range of innovative options that address their needs and preferences.  

#3 Structural Analysis and Design

Structural analysis involves evaluating and calculating the behaviour, stability, deflections, and safety of a structure. Different load combinations defined by Australian Standards and simulations are tested to verify the structural integrity of the designed building or structure. Our RPEQ-certified engineers scrutinize results and cross-check designs to ensure safety, durability, and performance requirements based on the results of structural analysis. Throughout the design process, we employ advanced structure design software that enhances our accuracy and efficiency.

#4 Detailing and Documentation 

We further developed modelled concepts into detailed plans and specifications. Every element is carefully outlined including materials, dimensions, construction methods and safety measures. Documentation is not only necessary to enhance project clarity but it plays a vital role in regularity compliance and quality assurance. 

#5 Construction and Quality Control 

To ensure that the project is constructed as per the design specifications, our team oversees the construction process. Likewise, rigorous quality control measures are implemented to verify that the project outcomes have the highest quality standards. 


Nexus Engineering Structural Design Services

Nexus Engineering offers a wide array of structural design services

Nexus Engineering Structural Design Services

  • Structural Load Calculations involve determining the magnitude, distribution, and types of loads (such as dead loads, live loads, wind loads, snow loads, seismic loads, etc.) that act on a structure. These calculations are a fundamental part of structural engineering and are used to design and ensure the safety and stability of buildings, bridges, and other structures. 
  • Foundation Design: We specialize in foundation solutions that provide the essential stability and strength needed to support any structure. 
  • Roof Structure Design: Our roof designs are developed to harmonize with the overall aesthetics of your project. We create roofing systems that are not only functional but also enhance the overall visual appeal of your structure.
  • Reinforced Concrete Design: Concrete is the backbone of many structures, and our reinforced concrete design ensures durability and longevity.
  • Timber Design: Timber offers a unique blend of natural beauty and strength. We design structures that are not only sturdy but also visually pleasing. Avail our timber design solutions such as deck structure design and transform your outdoor space. 
  • Steel Design: Steel is the symbol of strength. Our steel design harnesses this strength to create structures that can withstand every test of nature and time. 
  • Retaining Wall Design: Retaining walls serve a crucial function in managing earth and water. We design a diverse set of retaining walls including concrete sleeper retaining walls, timber retaining walls, and block retaining walls to mention a few.
  • Stress AnalysisGlass partition Design: We specialize in creating innovative and aesthetically pleasing glass partitions that enhance the flow and appearance of interior spaces.
  • Aluminium frame design: Aluminum is a versatile material known for its lightweight strength. The structure built using aluminium is both durable and efficient.
