Reinforced OR Post-tensioned Concrete Slab Design:
Do you have a residential/commercial multi storey project? Depending on the column layouts, available headroom and the client requirements, either conventional reinforced concrete or post-tensioned slabs may be suitable. Rise Engineers have got the experience to recommend the best and most economical slab system for any projects.
Reinforced and post-tensioned concrete frames are the most popular type of construction for multistory residential and commercial projects in Australia.Advantages of post-tension slabs include thinner slabs, faster construction, reduced overall weight of the building and hence smaller footings.
Pre-tensioned Concrete Design:
This is mainly for the precast concrete items such as precast floor beams where form work erection may not be feasible due to excessive heights or other site constraints. At Rise Engineers we have the expertise and experience to design pre-tensioned elements to speed up construction speed and to allow construction off site.
Structural Steel Design:
If your project demands a structural steel frame, our experienced engineers can design and detail structural steel frames to satisfy your project requirements. Common for warehouse and industrial project as well as some of the roof of the residential/commercial towers. Steel frame offers a faster erection of light weight construction.
Composite Steel/Concrete Design:
Do you have a project where floor to floor headroom is not an issue? If yes, then the composite steel/concrete floor can offer a fast and economical construction to your project. Rise Engineers have the knowledge and knowhow to economically design the composite floors. Common for warehouse/office construction and industrial developments with large floor plates and where headroom is not an issue. Primary and secondary steel beams with welded shear studs and a form of proprietary formwork sheeting is the typical floor structure for this type of construction.
Whether you prefer timber or steel frame, Rise Engineers can come up with the most economical structural design for your residential project.
Depending on the number of basement levels, height of the ground water table, type of soil to be retained and the lateral loads to be resisted the following shoring systems can be recommended: anchored or cantilevered soldier/contiguous piles, secant piles, cutter soil mix, sheet piles, combination of the above.
Finite Element Analysis:
At Rise Consulting Engineers, we use FEA as a primary tool to understand and make enhancement to the structural behaviour of buildings. Our engineers have a wide range of design experience in using aset of softwares to evaluate several variations of design concepts to propose economically viable solutions.
Many structures are designed for temporary use, this does not however change the overall expectation for safety. It is essential to design temporary structures to suit the specific intended purpose.At Rise Engineers, we have the expertise for proper design and documentation of any temporary structure such as excavation platforms, propping sequences and temporary decks and formworks.
Tower crane base pad footing design
Tower cranes can lift heavy weights and are slender cantilever structures. They can also be restrained by ties back to the building at certain levels to increase the capacity of the crane. The base pad footing of the crane is an important component of the crane structure as it resists both vertical loads and base moments stabilising the whole crane structure. At Rise Engineers, we provide ultimate solutions in designing appropriate crane base pad footings. Our professionals will design optimised pad size, concrete strength, and the large anchor bolts as required.
Wind and Seismic Analysis
In addition to gravity loads, lateral wind and seismic forces are alsorequired to be resisted by building structures and therefore are required to be considered during the structural design processaccordingto the current Australian standard requirements.
Whether it is a low, medium or high-risestructure Rise Engineers have the experience to design shear walls and cores to resist lateral loads.
Structural inspections and reports
At Rise Engineers, we are ready toarrange inspections with our qualified engineers at a convenient time to you. Whether it is a critical stage inspections, structural defect inspections or pre-purchase inspections, our engineers have got the experience to provide any type of structural inspection services.
Innovative solutions for retaining wall structural design whether it is a 1m high wall or a giant 20m high retaining wall with live traffic adjacent to it, we will come up with an economical structural design solution for it.
Rise Engineers also provide solutions to designing swimming pools whether suspended on a roof structure or inground. Our professionals can cover the structural design of all types and shapes of swimming pools.
Stormwater Drainage Design – MUSIC modelling, WSUD
Rise Engineers are familiar with every council development control plan for stormwater drainage design across NSW. MUSIC model and WSUD are now part of most council DA requirements for improving water quality and Rise Engineers have the knowledge and knowhow to satisfy the local government authority requirement for any type of project.
Do you have a new subdivision project? Let Rise Engineers experienced staff design the road alignments for authority approvals.
This involves the inspection of the damaged/defect areas, investigation to identify the cause of the damage and preparing specifications for the required remedial repair work.
Forensic and Remedial Engineering
We are experienced in determining the cause of the defects and offer suitable remedial solutions. Rise Engineers undertake comprehensive investigation on cause of the defects, prepare repair specifications and tender documents and supervise the repair work. We provide remedial engineering services to body corporates and strata plans, government authorities, private owners and commercial properties.
Building Information Modelling which is done in 3D model helps to integrate the architecture, structure and building services in to one model to identify any clashes between different building elements so when the construction starts on site it can progress smoothly without delays due to uncoordinated design issues.
This inspection is carried out for the adjoining neighbouring properties and infrastructure before the commencement and after the completion of the construction works to a site. The Local Government Authorities generally require this inspection to be done prior commencement and after completion of the construction works. The purpose of this inspection is to report on the existing condition and defects of the neighbouring properties and infrastructure and to determine if any damage has occurred to the surrounding public and private properties as a result of the construction activities.
