Zenith Consultants operate the most up to date design and analysis software that supports all of our engineering services. In conjunction with a fully trained and experienced team of Engineers, Technicians and Administrators, this forms the core of our business.
In addition to traditional Civil & Structural engineering consultancy services, we are also capable of surveying, assessing and reporting on all types of existing structure, be it a simple precast concrete lintel or a complex multi-level steel frame or stack for our industrial sector clients. Our principles of analysis and utilisation of applicable design standards and codes are the same throughout.
We are able to generate 2D and 3D models from captured survey information and existing drawings. We can accurately determine revised capacities and assess the life extensions of existing structures and structural elements. Decay, loss of section, material properties, geometry and change of use are a number of variables that can affect the performance and life span of any building or structure. This can all be modelled to represent a snapshot in time and assist with determining the structural integrity of existing assets.
All of our software interfaces with our drafting resource allowing us to accurately schedule components for fabrication purposes or cost analysis. By merging this data with our software we can generate powerful and detailed 3D graphical representations of any structure, or structural element, to better present our analysis results to our clients. These models can also be used to assists in desk top reviews of operational requirements where lifting or sliding of complex fabrications require to accurately interface with (or bypass) existing structural components or services.
Software suites commonly used:
- Autodesk Suite / AutoCAD / Revit / structural detailing
In conjunction with the analysis output (and information obtained from survey inspection) we use our extensive knowledge and experience from our exposure to the Civil and Structural Engineering industries to ultimately draw our conclusions and recommendations to our client.
