KMH will develop structural concepts for all parts of the project and determine appropriate design criteria for the project. The structural engineering team familiarise themselves with the Client objectives and then start to develop the engineering design basis and principles. A Concept Design report will be provided to allow the client to review progress and approve the way forward for Detailed Design.
The goal is to produce Detailed Design/Tender Design documentation that will sufficiently describe the project requirements and allow the Client to carry out a competitive tender process for the structural engineering works of the project. Finally Construction Drawings / GFCs/Working drawings are published.
The scope of works for the value engineering at KMH Engineering, is to carry out an extensive design process to identify value engineering opportunities and provide the necessary structural analysis modeling and supporting computations to substantiate the recommendations.
Value engineering exercise for the foundation, Initial appraisal of the schematic design to assess whether the value engineering exercise is justifiable.
Value engineering exercise for the whole project. This will be done in parallel with the peer review to fast track the process to suit the current accelerated construction program.
Appropriateness of structural philosophy - Correctness of design criteria - Validity of modeling/analysis assumptions - Identification of key elements and areas of concern for the structure.
At KMH Engineering, we Review relevant architectural information considering relevant reports relating to the structural design which have either been prepared by the primary consultant or have been prepared by others and made available to the primary consultant by the Client - Review design criteria, code compliance and design assumptions for practicality of relevant construction techniques - Review structural drawings to ensure that they are representative of the design intent at appropriate design milestones.
KMH discuss on any detailed supervision scope required by the client as a project manager or client’s representative. We preferably provide:
Site visits and meetings with contractors - Witness Excavation for foundation works and meetings with Geotechnical engineers - Reinforcement checking - Joint meeting at site to discuss the site related and coordination and critical issues - Coordination to site queries, emails, and messages related to day to day construction issues.
