Simplify has been appointed as structural engineers for a new residential development comprising of basement and 2 levels.

We offered 2 alternative solutions for the scheme. The first option included secant piles basement walls with composite slab floors and steel frame structure. The second solution included a ground beam with underpinning basement construction, a composite slab above the basement and SIPs for the superstructure. The chosen solution was the latter as it showed more consideration towards the structural integrity of adjacent structures during the construction stage and it was more financially viable for the client.

Simplify offered value engineering throughout the design process and further prompt and effective onsite support as and when needed. The project ran smoothly, and communication was the key, ensuring any delays were avoided.
