Structural engineering

We specialise in the design of steel, aluminium and composite structures. With over 30 years’ experience of developing structural designs for specialised commercial vessels, our team uses its extensive knowledge to deliver practical solutions.

Our structural design services include:

 

Our structural design experience ranges from small composite production designs to large steel and aluminium vessels that are dominated by complex global loads. This experience, coupled with our proud heritage in the design of high-speed commercial and naval craft, sets us apart as leaders in the field of lightweight and robust aluminium structures.

Our history of working with all the major classification societies gives us huge depth of knowledge and a record of efficiently and effectively achieving full Class approvals. With each Class society subject to its own nuances, we have the insight to engage Class in educated debate at the appropriate points and ensure that designs are unencumbered by heavy, redundant or expensive features.

Many naval architecture offices and smaller shipyards choose to subcontract structural design services, so we provide specialist structural engineering to a wide customer base, often including our competitors in other disciplines. To larger shipyards, we also offer a pool of flexible resource that is available to work in-yard as required.

So whether engaged as a single-source structural designer or reinforcing your existing team, we can provide a skilled, flexible and scalable service that helps you confidently bid, execute and deliver even the most challenging of projects.
