Structural engineering is a discipline within civil engineering and a vital element for any structure.
Structural engineers analyse and design load bearing components of a proposed building. It is a creative and technical discipline, using physical laws and the knowledge of the structural performance of a variety of materials and understanding how they will perform.
They focus on the stability of a structure and how it can work in a safe way and is a fundamental part of any structure or building. At Archibald Shaw our structural engineers will work alongside civil engineers and architects on a variety of projects from beginning to end, including:
- Theatres and stadia
- Bridges and tunnels
- Houses and high-rise buildings
Like civil engineering, there is also a professional body for structural engineers. The Institution of Structural Engineers was founded in 1908 to provide information and education, and to represent the profession.
