We have been analysing an old church roof prior to alterations. It has been modelled in 3d due to its complexity. Here are a few views of the frame and output.
Due to an expanding workload, we are recruiting a structural engineer. The candidate must have an interest in designing in all materials and exhibit an ability to think through a problem and determine an appropriate solution. This could be a graduate, chartered or senior engineer.
At our office in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire.

We have updated the website and given it a new theme.
Bouncy floors can be a problem in older houses. Over the lifetime of a building, the services such as plumbing and electrics can be replaced a number of times. If the positioning of notches and holes is not controlled then you can end up with quite bouncy floors, as was the case with this one.
These notches (top and bottom of the joist) were at the mid span. This had significantly reduced the load capacity and led to all the furniture wobbling when you walked through the room.
