The backbone of building projects
What are the geometrical requirements of architecture for a building and what is statically necessary to transfer the occurring loads? Can the boundary conditions resulting from the usage requirements and technical influences be implemented constructively at all? And can the planned construction of the building shell be carried out cost-effectively?
All these questions are posed to the structural engineer when preparing the building statics, which is an elementary engineering achievement. This ensures that the building designed by the architect has a load-bearing structure and fully meets its intended use.
What we do
At Kling Consult, engineers and designers work closely together with the object and specialist planners in order to meet static, economic and aesthetic requirements. Structural design for solid construction, steel construction, timber construction, facade construction as well as for civil engineering structures and special civil engineering measures are developed.
The team takes care of the planning and object supervision of existing building projects as well as new buildings of all kinds.
- Construction in existing buildings: For existing buildings, building expert reports are prepared which examine the condition of the supporting structure and make statements on the possibilities of a possible conversion. In the case of necessary renovation work, an attempt is made to preserve the existing structure and to develop load-bearing reserves by using modern computer technology. Together with the client, a resource-saving, economic and sustainable solution is sought on the basis of current building regulations.
- New construction: For new buildings, a load-bearing structure adapted to the use and planning conditions is developed, which is individually optimised for each construction project, from the choice of building materials, the desired appearance to a solid foundation.
Structural design according to standards
The task of structural design requires not only the preparation of structural calculations, but also the elaboration of functional construction plans which guarantee a purposeful implementation on the construction site in compliance with the cost objectives.
In addition to compliance with current standards and regulations, up-to-date 3D planning for internal quality assurance and external data exchange has been a natural part of the Kling Consult team's work for many years.
