We execute complete technical documentation for the Structural and Civil Engineering branch at all possible stages of a design: a concept design, building permit design, tender design, executive design, workshop design. We carry out technical expertises of building structures and constructions that enable to determine technical conditions of facilities, a possibility of weighing a structure down, introducing (upward) extension or changing an occupancy type.
We execute vibrations influence analyses, optimization analyses and verification of structural designs. We create designs of new buildings and prepare documentation concerning modernization, extension or demolition of existing buildings. We offer our services for projects connected with the management of construction works, pilotage and the technical supervision of building sites. Moreover, we prepare the multidisciplinary documentation in coorporation with our business partners.
We offer a full service of the entire investment process: applying for a zoning permit, preparing a complete building permit design in order to obtain a building permit, preparing a multidisciplinary executive design and the supervision of construction works on site. We cooperate with reliable and renowned architectural design studios, geological survey offices, MEP engineering companies in order to provide the effective and complete project implementation.
Our potential and wide experience allow us to provide complete services throughout the period of project development.
The preliminary design is made up of basic layouts and section views. It serves especially to present a notion of a building, outline of a construction project and conception for main construction systems. The descriptive and drawing parts of the project provides a slight degree of detail. It is created in the first stage of the investment process.
The design constitutes the basis to execute works by a building contractor. It completes and provides details to the building permit design in the scope necessary to construction works execution. Furthermore, it contains drawings drawn to the scale adjusted to the specific character of ordered works and provides precise information concerning the design solutions which will be implemented.
The analysis of building structures located in the zone of dynamic influence e.g. places in which communication infrastructure space overlaps with usable space. It investigates the harmful impact of vibrations transferred from the subgrade to building structures and determines the vibrations influence on people inside the buildings. The analysis aims at presenting a method of reducing vibrations.
Geotechnical Unit has been creating structural designs in extremely difficult geotechnical conditions and in tight, compact urban development since 2010.
FORT POLSKA specializes in geotechnics connected with residential, office and industrial construction of underground and overground structures. We analyse and verify interplay between structural elements of a building and the subgrade. Basing on soil mechanics, we judge the physical and mechanical properties of the ground and we verify stresses and strain states of the ground caused by the impact of new building structures.
We analyse building structures and constructions in the view of difficult geotechnical conditions. On the basis of soil investigations, we solve problems concerning exchange, strengthening and evaluation of soil.
Structural elements and the subgrade affect each other during the use of a building. The Influence of a load-bearing structure is transferred through a foundation to the subgrade and causes the subgrade strains. The deformation of the subgrade, occurring as a result of the transferred influence, causes deformation and dislocation of the load-bearing structure.
FORT POLSKA designs foundations, excavations protection, cut-off walls and diaphragm walls using the up-to-date software supporting the geotechnician practice.
Our structural engineers design safe and stable structures and suggest economical solutions which enable efficient project realization in the prevailing conditions of construction.
Structure designing is based on the knowledge from the scope of structural analysis, strength of materials, theory of elasticity and plasticity. The quality of our elaboration is provided by the team consisted of highly-qualified technical and engineering staff that uses modern computer software in the process of designing.
Calculations and structural analyses are made with the use of software such as: Robot Structural Analysis Professional, GRAITEC ADVANCE DESIGN, LIRA, RM-WIN/PL-WIN, SCAD, ABC Płyta, ABC Tarcza, SPECBUD package. Calculations and geotechnical analyses are made with the use of software such as: PLAXIS, GGU-RETAIN, GGU-SLOPE.
Design documentation is prepared with the use of: AutoCAD, Building Design Suite Premium (Autodesk Revit), Tekla Structures, Nemetschek, AutoCAD Raster Design.
We use the following standards in our projects: European, Polish, French, German and Turkmen. Our documentation is prepared in four languages: Polish, French, English and Russian. We provide complete design documentation in the scope of reinforced concrete and steel structures, it contains structural analyses, drawings and detailed statements.
Steel structures are precisely created in three-dimensional space with the use of Tekla Structures software. Drawings, bills of materials for executive designs and workshop documentation are generated directly from 3D model. We present models and visualisations of the structure at each stage of a project and we have a possibility of exchanging the data with other systems. We deliver 3D models on special request, which can be looked through by means of free software.
Reinforced concrete structures are precisely modelled in three-dimensional space in the licensed software Autodesk Revit. Drawings and bills of materials are generated directly from 3D model. We present models and visualisations of the structure at each stage of a project and we have a possibility of exchanging the data with other systems. We deliver 3D models on special request, which can be look through by means of free software.
We have experience in work with multidisciplinary teams all over the world. We use up-to-date tolls supporting the design process (Tekla Structures and Autodesk Revit). Furthermore, we are able to cooperate and exchange data with all members of the design process.
