Why structure should matter
Importance Of Structural Design
Our structural design helps our clients optimise the structural performance of their multi-storey building. This helps reduce the amount of support and non-load bearing walls needed, which ultimately reduces the amount of concrete required.
Coupling: The ways in which coupling enables the integration of subsystems to enhance the system’s function, reliability, and resilience.
The structural design of a building is a process of coordinating the details of its components to achieve specific end results: for example, it determines how long the columns need to be to provide adequate support for the floor system, how to reinforce the foundations, and what types of windows to use. Structural design also determines how much load will be borne by the structure, how best to give the building adequate ventilation and how to provide access to the building from the exterior. The structural design, and its integration with the visual design, is a process that can take several months to complete. If done properly, the
end result will be a strong building that provides sufficient support for the floor system, is sturdy enough to resist lateral loading as it will transfer that variable to the column to be supported, and is structurally safe for the occupants. The end result will also be a building that has user-centric spaces and that provides sufficient access space for people to move throughout (Wright, 2008).
The structural design process involves a number of specialized tasks. These tasks are related to the functions of each part of the building. They are carried out by structural engineers, structural technicians, and/or construction, architectural, civil, mechanical, and electrical engineers. The structural design process is designed to ensure that the entire building is safe, stable, and strong enough to support its own weight, withstand the forces of nature, and meet all applicable safety and performance requirements, including those regarding earthquakes.
Design is a critical stage in the building process. It is the first stage in which the building engineer interacts with the design team and clients to determine the performance and efficiency goals of the building, establish the design requirements, and determine the appropriate loadbearing and interior systems. This is an opportune time to establish design rules and develop design recommendations that will ensure the building is safe, secure, and withstands the anticipated performance.
