A holistic approachOur structural engineers’ holistic approach aims at developing optimal structures that also meet architectural, economic, environmental, fabrication, transportation, and construction requirements. This requires skill, experience and a detailed understanding of local contexts.
Structural engineering is also about exploring the limitations of materials and getting inspired by nature. At Ramboll, we are proud of our ongoing work developing new types of innovative structures and setting new standards in the business – both in terms of structural concepts and geometric complexity. We use the most advanced engineering software and develop our own when our needs go beyond the limits of commercially available software.
Our areas of expertiseWe design conventional structures as well as advanced structures such as:
- Structures for ultra-high buildings (+300 metres)
- Structures made purely from glass
- Composite steel and concrete structures
- Structures made from Glass-fibre Reinforced Plastics (GRP)
- Cable-supported structures
- Membrane structures
- Shell structures
In addition to streamlining the design process, 3D modelling makes it possible to use complex shapes and models as never before, often resulting in more organic-looking buildings.
