This category involves:
- Preliminary designs
- Detailed designs
- Construction supervision of structural engineering works in reinforced concrete, structural steel and timber
Typical projects in the category include buildings, culverts and bridge structures, elevated water towers and ground water reservoirs.
The key consideration in this category of work is the optimization of structural designs to achieve the most cost effective product for the clients while simultaneously ensuring the designs tie in with the client’s long terms plans and designs.
Emphasis in delivery of the design works is placed on ensuring prior adequate information on expected founding conditions at the work sites in order to design appropriate solutions for the ultimate support of the designed structures. Equally critical in the design of building structures is the knowledge of flooding patterns in the different areas of Namibia. This is especially of importance in Northern Namibia where the staff of Ongwediva Consulting Engineers have had the opportunity to design and experience the performance of buildings and other structures over the last decade and a half. In light of this experience, Ongwediva Consulting Engineers designs appropriate and suitable solutions to ensure buildings and other structures do not suffer the effects of floods during the flooding seasons.
