our ENGINEERING SERVICES include:
- Structural Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Remedial Engineering
- Forensic Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Acoustic Engineering
Our engineers are experienced in all the fields listed above, providing you with comprehensive engineering services, but we specialise in structural engineering. Structural engineering is a major sub-discipline of civil engineering, which deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment. This means dealing with anything from buildings to bridges, but structural engineering primarily concerns itself with the analysis and design of structures that support or resist loads - especially for us this means buildings. We have qualified people who are able to assess the bearings or loads, for example, in roofs, carparks, floors of apartment buildings, balconies etc. and other important structures that may have been damaged or are being worn down. Our consultants can determine whether those materials and loads have been structurally compromised or not and how to maintain, repair or replace them, without causing harm or compromising the surrounding structure.
Remedial Engineering is a corrective branch of engineering, involved in the correction of bad engineering, and the improvement of engineering skill and work, and so this is also obviously important for TBES Consultants to be familiar with because we often find that where there is a defect, it is due to a poorly constructed or planned engineering feature or failed construction design. Our team is experienced in remedial engineering, but generally this is used when the original design is entirely flawed and a new design needs to be created, approved and installed.
Our team is familiar with forensic engineering (the investigation of materials, products, structures or components that fail or don’t function as intended), electrical engineering (generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism), and acoustic engineering (a branch of engineering concerned with the design, analysis and control of sound and vibration), but we do not specialise in these areas and do not often require these skills in general defect assessment and project management.
