S H Structures Limited is committed to an active involvement from the earliest stages of a project, aiming to develop a supportive relationship with the client’s professional team. Assistance is provided with both, technical and budget issues and carefully considered value engineering, the development of connection details and innovative erection schemes frequently providing benefits to the construction programme and the scheme budget.
Seeing the benefit of 3-d modelling some years ago the company is now at the forefront in the use this technology during the development of steel structures. All our projects are produced using Tekla Structures software, which enables us to develop the complex geometric shapes and forms often required by our clients, turning abstract concepts into a working reality.
The software is used throughout the project’s early development right through to on site erection and produces the various general arrangement and fabrication drawings. It also provides additional benefits, such as determining the centre of gravity for intricate assemblies. This information is used in the development of erection schemes to provide detailed plans for complex lifts, ensuring the correct placement of difficult items ‘first time’, reducing the potential risks to operatives working at height.
