STRUCTURAL GLAZING, D+B, FABRICATION AND GEOTECHNICAL
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the service received from PRO Structures. Very good communication, and even when I had to put the engineers under a lot of pressure for an unexpectedly quick deadline, we still received what we needed in time to finish a successful project.”
– Andy Gainey, Project Coordinator, The Window Glass Company
A smaller but equally important area of PRO Structure’s workload comes from specialists and other engineering consultancies, for example geotechnical engineers, structural glazing specialists, steel fabricators and design and build contractors.
We have ongoing relationships with various organisations in these fields, such as Ridgeway, the WindowGlass Company, AF Drew Steel Fabricators and E-metalfab (Bristol), and have in fact specifically recruited a structural glazing specialist so we can best meet our clients’ needs.
On these projects our focus is to ensure we fully understand the client’s business model and their specific structural requirements, providing a bespoke service to fulfil their brief. Specialist structural engineering input is needed for large glazed elevations, especially when they are faceted or inclined, which requires structural design checks of the aluminium window mullions and transoms to make sure they can withstand both wind and vertical loads.
Examples of projects where we have partnered with specialist consultancies include London’s Caledonian Road/Royal Wharf 15-storey mixed use development; the St Nicholas Market mezzanine extension, Bristol, for Taste Ltd, and meanwhile our work in the field of structural glazing is showcased here.
