Structural Engineering & Fabrication

Structural Engineering

Design: Structural engineers use mathematics, physics, and computer-aided design (CAD) software to create safe and efficient structures. They take into account factors such as the purpose of the structure, the materials to be used, the environmental conditions, and the anticipated loads it will face.

Analysis: Structural engineers perform thorough analyses to understand how a structure will behave under different loads, such as dead loads (e.g., the weight of the structure itself), live loads (e.g., occupants or furniture), wind loads, earthquake loads, and temperature changes.

Material Selection: Engineers choose appropriate materials, such as concrete, steel, wood, or composite materials, based on the specific needs of the structure and its intended use.

Safety Regulations: Structural engineers must comply with local building codes and safety regulations to ensure the safety and integrity of the structure.

Construction Supervision: They often supervise the construction process to ensure that the design is accurately executed and that any changes or unexpected challenges are handled appropriately.


Fabrication refers to the process of manufacturing or constructing structural components by assembling various materials to form a final product. In the context of structural engineering, fabrication typically involves working with steel, aluminum, concrete, and other materials to create structures.

Steel Fabrication: This is a common type of structural fabrication, where steel beams, columns, and other elements are cut, welded, and assembled according to the engineering drawings.

Welding: Welding is a critical process in structural fabrication, as it involves fusing metals together to create strong and reliable connections.

Quality Control: Fabrication companies maintain strict quality control measures to ensure that the components meet design specifications and safety standards.

On-Site Assembly: Once the structural components are fabricated, they are transported to the construction site and assembled according to the structural engineering plans.

Modular Construction: Fabrication allows for the creation of pre-fabricated modular components that can be assembled quickly on-site, reducing construction time and costs.
