Geotechnical Investigations

Geotechnical Investigations

Today, we’re going to talk about geotechnical investigations, which are an important requirement for any project. They should be carried out to determine the existing ground conditions on site, with the goal of providing the information that the structural...
Formwork in Construction

Formwork in Construction

If you stopped by back in July and read our post about Falsework,you’ll remember that we promised we’d also cover formwork within the construction industry. Today, it’s time for us to make good on that promise. The first and most obvious questions...
Commercial Buildings

Commercial Buildings

Here at LSY, we’re involved in a number of commercial projects that we’d like to talk to you about. This includes an exciting project in Chelsea which we’ll talk about some more in a future blog, so keep your eyes peeled. Today, though, we want to...
Falsework Used in Construction

Falsework Used in Construction

We live in a time in which there’s a plethora of options when it comes to falsework systems for supporting concrete during construction in the UK. This means that there’s plenty of choice when it comes to picking out a falsework system. Back in our July...
Women in Engineering and Construction

Women in Engineering and Construction

Saturday 23rd June 2018 marked International Women in Engineering Day, and it got me thinking about some of the female engineers that I admire. Some of them are more well-known than others, but each of them is an inspiration and an example of exactly why we need...
Moment Frames as Stability Systems

Moment Frames as Stability Systems

Last month, we continued our series of posts on stability systems by taking a look at framed bracing. Today, we’re building on that and bringing the series to a close by taking a look at moment frames and their role in the stability of buildings. The vast...
Framed Bracing as a Stability System

Framed Bracing as a Stability System

Last month, we took a look at the use of walls as a stability system, highlighting when to use them and when not to. Today, we’re going to build on that by moving on to another type of stability system. It’s used on steel buildings all over the world....
Using Walls as a Stability System

Using Walls as a Stability System

In my last post, I talked a little bit about the horizontal stability systems and load paths that are available to structural engineers. Today, we’re going to build on that by taking a look at the topic of walls, which have been used as vertical stability...

Horizontal Stability Systems and Load Paths

At the end of our last post, we promised to take a look at some of the horizontal stability systems which are used to keep buildings safe from withstanding lateral pressures. It’s time to make good on that promise. One of the most important things to consider...
