Structural Engineering Process

Structural Engineering Process

Our Structural Engineer Design Process 

At PorthouseDean, the consistency of our work is key. Providing a quality service is, without question, one of our greatest priorities when we’re dealing with a client. However, the speed and reliability that we provide it is what makes us truly stand out. 

Our structural engineering process begins by assessing the enquiry to ensure that the quote is as accurate and watertight as possible. From here, we will agree on a structural layout and produce detailed design documents. Once our work is completed, we will contact you to ensure that you are 100% happy with every single aspect. As design specialists, we offer basic structural calculations to provide blueprints for safe and compliant residential structures. It is then up to the construction teams to execute these designs properly. 

We have provided assistance and consultation on a huge variety of different projects across the UK. Therefore, if you’re looking for a residential structural engineering service you can trust, you’re in the right place.

About Porthouse Dean

Our team of expert structural engineers are trained in all the latest techniques and equipped with the most up-to-date technologies. Founded in 2012, the PorthouseDean brand is built around you — our service is catered to what you want and how you want it. 

Consistent Quality Assured

At PorthouseDean, the quality of our work is vital. We aim to always do what we say and say what we do. To help us with this goal, we implemented a robust quality assurance system into our structural engineering process. This measure is in place to minimise mistakes, and maximise efficiency and effectiveness.  

Engineering for Architects

We understand that for architects, it’s crucial that a structural engineer can collaborate effectively with you. That’s why we’ve dedicated time to perfecting our structural engineering process to perfectly align with the unique needs and requirements of architects. Because for us, excellence isn’t merely a goal; it’s a commitment.

The Importance of a Comprehensive Structural Engineering Process

Our meticulously created structural engineering process is essential to ensure that your project’s design is high quality and functional —  all while meeting the needs of every stakeholder. Ultimately, a reliable structural engineering process is vital to ensure that the low-rise residential building projects we work on can be completed safely and securely, with considerations for cost-effectiveness and compliance with required regulations. For a residential project to be successful, it requires collaboration across all stakeholders — to ensure that the work is done to the maximum of its potential. For a job done properly, you’re in the right place. 

A well-structured engineering design process is a vital step in the successful delivery of a project for a number of reasons. These include:

Maximising Safety

The primary role of a structural engineer is to help make sure that a structure is designed to be both strong and durable — to enable the architectural designs to be realised as safely as possible.

Ensuring Efficiency 

A properly devised structural engineering process ensures that a design is optimised for maximum efficiency. This includes minimising material wastage, construction time, and costs. 

Simple Solutions

By ensuring that anybody can understand the work PorthouseDean do, we can significantly minimise the risk of confusion and misunderstandings, as well as possible delays that can follow.

Clear Communication 

A well-structured design process should guarantee clear communication between engineer, architect, and other stakeholders. Clear lines of communications are key to getting everybody on the same page.
