Rushmoor Engineering provides design consultancy to developers, contractors, architects, timber component manufacturers, self-build clients, and private homeowners. We also regularly work with engineering companies to provide our specialist design service.
Architects and Engineers
We are regularly engaged by architects and developers at the sheme and planning stage to provide innovative solutions to unique projects. Timber is visually very attractive and can be used to enhance most buildings. With environmental considerations becoming of paramount importance, timber construction continues to be the preferred method of building. The sustainable credentials of timber are second to none.
Engineers also look to Rushmoor Engineering Services for expert advice on methods of design and detailing in timber. Our thorough knowledge of the timber industry allows us to produce practical constructions using traditional or modern methods and materials. The latest engineered wood products permit the use of larger spans, deeper sections and more efficient connections than have previously been possible. This has considerably expanded the types of structure constructed in timber. We will be pleased to discuss how our specialised knowledge can be of assistance to you
Contractors and Developers
Design and build is an established and successful method of producing modern, efficient and economical buildings. We are often requested to join design teams at an early stage in order to provide advice and preliminary scheme information. This ensures that design methods can be established, costs predicted and the maximum ‘buildability’ achieved for the particular project.
The continuing skills shortage within the building industry dictates that more and more projects are built using modern methods of construction.
Designing and manufacturing buildings with the controlled environment of a factory produces structures that are dimensionally accurate. This combined with the fast erection times (a typical house can be watertight in 5 days), less callbacks and the removal of the brickwork from the critical path has encouraged many contractors to switch to timber frame construction.
We have worked with many contractors on projects such as hotels, student accommodation and care homes.
We regularly work with developers such as Persimmon Homes, Charles Church, Taylor Wimpey, Barratt Homes and Bellway.
Timber Component Manufacturers
Timber component manufacturers are major customers of Rushmoor Engineering. We act as structural designers for timber fabricators throughout the United Kingdom.
Working as the manufacturers’ independent consultant or as an extension to their design team we produce structural calculations, layouts, sections, details, manufacturing drawings and material cutting data for all types of timber buildings. In addition, automated cutting and manufacturing machinery can be directly driven by our inhouse software.
We take particular care to reflect each company’s manufacturing methods and incorporate standard and stock items as a matter of course.
Producing designs and drawings on time, economy of materials and ease of manufacture and erection are our customers’ prime considerations. We could supplement your existing design facility, so please contact us now.
Private Home Owners
Rushmoor Engineering regularly works with private home owners consulting on new builds, extensions and alterations. For self build clients we can offer a one stop service with design advise, inspections, structural calculations and construction drawings.
