Structural Engineering Services

Structural design shall be performed prior to construction to ensure the structures are capable of resisting the intended loading and resist potential environmental conditions without failure during their design lifespan. Structural designing provides all the necessary information regarding the foundations, walls, floors, roof kinds, steep beams, material quality, and more. Besides that, the structural engineer shall determine the appropriate material grade to ensure the safety and operational use of structures while avoiding unnecessary costs. IPM Professional Services provides various structural design consultancy services including reinforced concrete design, steel design, temporary structure design, machine foundation, structural assessment/ investigation, load analysis, bridge design, etc.

Scopes of structural engineering services that we provide:

    1. Reinforced Concrete (RC) Design
      Reinforced concrete is a highly durable material and can provide a long service life with minimal maintenance cost. It can be also molded into any shape to accommodate artistic architectural designs like arcs and domes. Over the years, IPM Professional Services has gathered a wide range of experience in RC design for residential, commercial, and industrial project developments. The latest engineering tools and technologies are adopted to provide efficient and optimum design.
    2. Steel Structure Design
      Steel structure is often adopted in commercial and industrial buildings, like factories and warehouses due to its capability to provide a long clear span with minimal deflection. Its lightweight not only allows easier handling and installation on site but also reduce the size of the supporting foundation. IPM Professional Services has vast experience across different scales of steel design projects such as billboard, spreader beam, sculpture support, temporary structure, factory, warehouse, gas plant, etc. Engineering software are utilized to ease the tedious calculation process, reducing the possibility of human errors and presenting the outputs professionally.
    3. Temporary Structure
      It is a type of structure that serves temporary purposes. It is built to assist the construction of permanent structures and will be removed after the permanent structures become self-supporting or completed. Temporary structures aid the construction of buildings, tunnels, bridges, and other structures by providing protection to the structure under construction and access to the workers as well as assuring the safety of workers and the public. Common temporary structures include access scaffolds, props, shoring, excavation support, falsework, and formwork.
    4. Machine Foundation
      Machine foundation is a specially engineered foundation provided underneath a machine that induces frequent vibrations or mechanical motion. The machine foundation shall be designed with adequate weight to resist resonance between the machine and the supporting soil. There are a few types of machine foundations available to accommodate different machines such as block type, box type, wall type, and framed type.
    5. Structural Assessment / Investigation
      Building inspection aims to investigate the existing defects in the early stage to allow the remedy to be taken before the defects form or worsen over time. Detailed investigation and data collection will be conducted on site to determine the root cause and extent of the damage. Non-destructive tests and destructive tests may be performed depending on the site problems and actual situation. The recommendations for rectification will be provided too in the engineering technical report with professional endorsement and submitted to the building owner at the end of such assessment.
    6. Load Analysis
      An accurate estimation of the structural loads is important in ensuring the design structure is safe for its intended usage during its service period. In the absence of specific loading requirements from the project owner, buildings are typically designed to withstand the recommended design loading provided in British Standard, Eurocode, UBBL, or other applicable standards. These minimum design standards may not be always sufficient for the intended usage throughout the building lifecycle. Load analysis is, therefore particularly critical for structures with altered use as the magnitude and pattern of loadings could be very different from the original design. Besides, it is also very common to come across scenarios where the structural design capacity of the building is unknown to the building owner due to the absence of well-documented structural drawings and design records. In all cases above, the building owner is advised to engage a professional engineer for a load analysis to ensure that the structure can safely withstand the new loadings without failure.
    7. Bridge Design
      Bridge design is a specialised engineering discipline branching from conventional civil engineering that involves surveying, planning, design, construction, management, and maintenance of bridges to ensure the safe transportation of vehicles, humans, and goods. There are seven (7) main types of bridge designs that have been adopted and enhanced over the years, which are arch bridge, beam bridge, cable-stayed bridge, cantilever bridge, suspension bridge, truss bridge, and tied arch bridge. Each bridge has its distinct capacity for better handling of some specific types of loads and design requirements.

We provide professional structural engineering design services including:

      • Provide detailed design drawings.
      • Prepare bill of quantities and tender documents.
      • Tender evaluation.
      • Obtain construction approvals.
      • Monitor the construction to ensure conformance to the approved drawings.
      • Obtaining supporting letters from local authorities and related external technical agencies which will be construed as compulsory documents for CCC.
