Structural Engineering

Structural design excellence for your project

With our team of Structural Engineers on board your projects benefit from practical experience honed over many years, combined with expertise in virtual and digital design technology.

Glanville works closely with clients and architects to provide innovative and economic structural design solutions for all types of building projects, from refurbishment and conversion schemes to new-build, as well as highway structures such as bridges and retaining walls.

Supported by sophisticated computer analysis and a wealth of experience, our structural engineers are able to design using traditional construction materials as well as adopt inventive and sustainable approaches using modern materials and construction methods. The choice of materials and construction technique can be heavily influenced by the environment, so our solutions take account of their surroundings and adjacent buildings.

Our projects vary considerably in size from small scale, one-off commissions to large multi-million pound schemes, but the complexity of the design is not always related to the size of the project. Our approach is to explore a number of design solutions which can then be tested against cost, construction and time constraints as well as how well they achieve the client’s brief and architectural requirements.

We work in partnership with the professional project team and client to deliver innovative and sustainable solutions whatever the scale or complexity of the project.

Specialist knowledge, innovative solutions

As part of your professional team, we not only contribute specialist knowledge of structural engineering design but also bring in-depth technical expertise. Over the years, we have built an extensive portfolio of structural design solutions for building and infrastructure projects of all sizes and across a wide range of sectors.

Each project is unique and presents its own constraints and challenges. Our experience in taking into account the specifics of a project and its surroundings to find the most appropriate materials and structural solution is second to none.

Our approach is to explore a number of design solutions which can then be tested against cost, construction and time constraints, as well as how well they achieve the client’s brief and architectural requirements, to find the optimal economic and buildable solution.

Building Information Modelling (BIM)

BIM brings a more integrated and collaborative approach to design, procurement, construction and the operation of our buildings and infrastructure meaning improved value, cost efficiency and environmental performance.

For several years, we have been at the cutting edge of using BIM in new-build design as well as for managing the development and refurbishment of existing buildings and structures.
