Creative problem solving
Almost every project – from a retail or office interior to a show or museum exhibit structure – will come with engineering challenges. For example, we might need to develop an intricate fastening detail or find a swift method of assembling or securing a large component.
Engineering is often described as creative problem solving and we identify potential problems early. With flashlight in teeth, we analyze each project, pinpointing areas that require specialist engineering and manufacture. This is especially important for safety-critical or complex structures.
While CAD can simulate components virtually with high accuracy, sometimes only real-world versions will determine how designs will perform in practice. In these cases we can make prototypes or full-size mock-ups for field testing.
We also carry out value engineering. This looks closely at cost versus function, examining materials, processes, time and expected outcome to ensure that clients receive the optimum result for their investment.
