Shawton Engineering Ltd are able to assist clients with the structural design of their projects. We ensure that we are available in the early stages of design to ensure the most economic and cost effective solution is proposed to suit your requirements. We consider this to be the period when the maximum benefit can be realised in terms of the specialist contractor’s knowledge and experience in determining the structural layout and any interface details whilst enabling any value engineering options to be introduced and built in from the outset of the project.
We are available to offer a complete design package from:
- Structural Calculations
- Detailed Manufacturing Drawings
- Construction Reviews
We have complete control of all clients designs and the above process is undertaken and controlled by our designers/technicians.
Good design is crucial if a system is to be efficient and productive. And a key to good design is a good working relationship between us and our clients, a relationship that involves discussion, dialogue and debate. Quite simply, as we all know, it’s good to talk.
All our designs begin with a period of in-depth client consultation. This could involve helping to develop an initial concept or assessing the viability of a project but whatever the subject, it is the start of a dialogue that continues long after the project has been commissioned.
At Shawton Engineering our own in-house team is complemented by a network of specialists and consultants, ensuring that we can provide the latest, innovative solutions across every aspect of a proposal and design.
Our experience shows that the following are the keys areas where our specialist input can have the greatest impact:
- Outline Designs & Concepts - carried out from both a technical and commercial perspective
- Tendering - with an emphasis on best value solutions
- Detailed specification and design
Technological advancements in the structural steelwork industry have been considerable over the past 5 – 10 years in terms of development of modeling software and CNC fabrication machinery.
Shawton Engineering have made considerable investments in these areas in modernising the working practices and processes operated.
