Do I Need An Architect For My Construction Project?

Architects play a crucial part in the designing, planning and development on the construction of the desired property. Architects now make use of the latest technology when it comes to the planning of the design for your perfect property or new business. With the latest technology available, Architects are using 3D Modelling to show the clients a virtual image of the project at hand.

What is 3D Modelling and how is it used?

3D modelling is a technique in computer graphics for producing a 3D digital representation of any object or surface. An artist uses special software to manipulate points in virtual space (called vertices) to form a collection of vertices that form an object. When 3D printing architectural models, you combine the precision of virtual 3D modelling with the tangibility of a physical object. Architects used to create scale models mostly out of wood or foam, but more and more of them are embracing the benefits of 3D printing their newest designs

Why hire a Civil and Structural Engineer?

Civil and Structural Engineering goes back to ancient times when people started constructing shelters for themselves. The history of civil and structural engineering dates back to 2700 BC when the step pyramid for Pharaoh Djoser was built by Imhotep, the first engineer in history known by name.

But what is the difference between Civil and Structural Engineering?

Civil engineering focuses more attention in design elements, Civil engineering informatics is on fundamental methods, models and processes of civil engineering, as well as information technology. This provides the basis for the systematic mapping of problems to the computer in such a way that the potential of information technology can be fully exploited. Structural engineering is more concerned on inspecting materials to be used for the construction. Structural design is conducted by a structural engineer whose role is to ensure the safety, stability and performance of the structure. Structural engineering also involves the analysis, design, construction and maintenance of structures that reinforce or counteracts loads such as skyscrapers, dams and bridges.

Do I Need A Mechanical Engineer and What do mechanical and electrical engineers do?

Mechanical engineers design power-producing machines, such as electric generators, internal combustion engines, and steam and gas turbines, as well as power-using machines, such as refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. Mechanical engineers design other machines inside buildings, such as elevators and escalators

Why are mechanical engineers important?

Mechanical engineers are involved with the design, analysis, testing, manufacturing, control, operation, and maintenance of mechanical systems. Mechanical Engineering is important. It deals with all aspects of the conversion of thermal energy into useful work and the machines that make this possible.

What is special about mechanical engineering?

Mechanical engineering is the discipline that applies engineering, physics, engineering mathematics, and materials science principles to design, analyse, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production, and operation of machinery.

What is Electrical Engineering?

Electrical engineering is one of the newer branches of engineering and dates back to the late 19th century. It is the branch of engineering that deals with the technology of electricity. Electrical engineers work on a wide range of components, devices and systems, from tiny microchips to huge power station generators. Generally, the task of an electrical engineer is to design high voltage equipment such as wiring systems, lighting systems, and generators.

An electrical engineer is someone who designs and develops new electrical systems, solves problems and tests equipment. They study and apply the physics and mathematics of electricity, electromagnetism and electronics to both large- and small-scale systems to process information and transmit energy.

What is a Fire Consultant and what do they do?

Fire Engineer/consultant is a specialist whose knowledge covers a wide range of scientific, technological, sociological, management and legal topics related to fire and its prevention and extinction. Fire safety is the set of practices intended to reduce the destruction caused by fire. Fire safety measures include those that are intended to prevent ignition of an uncontrolled fire and those that are used to limit the development and effects of a fire after it starts.

Fire Engineering is the application of scientific and engineering principles, rules and expert judgment, based on an understanding of the phenomena and effects of fire and of the reaction and behaviour of people to fire, to protect people, property and the environment from the destructive effects of fire.

Construction Industry Trends 2019

As many things in life, the construction industry also evolves and improves in many ways, of which many construction trends develop as well in the process.

Here are a few construction trends that are happening in 2019.

• Single-Design Models
In general, documents that are created by engineers usually are given to the contractors to adjust the information on the drawing according to their working process. But that is in most cases not how the process proceeds. Nowadays, time is most certainly of the essence and construction trends need to be implemented and with this, it all becomes in-house from engineering to coordination. Which means that models should go directly from engineering to construction.

• Materials
Materials are being recycled and reused in every way for our environment. For construction, it is not about how good the quality of a material is anymore, but also on how the material is being used for the construction process.

• Energy Efficiency
Everything is dependent on energy and it becomes more and more of a problem, especially here in South Africa. Energy consumption should thus be taken in regards to construction and systems should be implemented, such as systems that recover energy through heat wheels and occupancy sensors.

If you do require more information about our industry, please don't hesitate to contact us. We can move forward, together.

Elements of a successful safety program

Before starting any project, there are a few elements that need to be checked for safety, called a safety program that needs to be followed. Not all companies have the same safety programs to follow, but there are 5 components to keep in mind when setting up your safety program:

- Leadership Commitment
- Employee Engagement
- Exposure Assessment
- Hazard Prevention and Control
- Extra Safety Training

Leadership commitment during a safety program is a crucial point to be fully committed. It requires an unwavering approach to both financial efforts and adequate resource deployment.
The employees should also be engaged in the safety program as a team, involving all personnel to be equal.
It is critical for a company to be aware of the exposures that might pop up within the safety program, hence the exposure assessment is needed to be divided between employees as tasks to minimize any exposure.
In a safety program is will never be enough to just identifying any hazards in the workspace, but introducing control measures, based on careful consideration and research is a must.
A company can never risk having too little safety training for its employees. It is always good to have extra safety training in the safety program to prevent any losses.

Please make sure that your safety program is in order, before starting with any project.

The importance of finishing up your projects

The importance of finishing up your projects in crucial in the construction industry. It shows that you are prepared to go the extra mile for your client.

Putting the final touches the projects you worked on and that you have spent so much time on, shows potential clients that you not only care for your people, but also for what you do and how much you put into your work. It shows good work ethic and interest from your side to the client and after all, your projects are your window to your capabilities, it is the legacy that you leave behind. The importance of finishing up is so crucial because it keeps the clients coming back to you.
