structural design services
Tensis is one of the leading specialists in the design of custom-built Tensile Fabric Structures.
Working in partnership with Architects, Consultants, Steel & Concrete Contractors, we provide a complete and detailed set of fabrication drawings and calculations.
To meet the unique technical challenges, specialist tools have been developed to assist in the design of special structure buildings, including 3D software tools and spreadsheets.
Tensis frequently works on international projects as part of a multi-disciplinary design team. To create the often spectacular designs we draw on a wide range of high-tech structures and materials, including high tensile cable nets and trusses, tensioned fabric structures and timber grid-shells
Our FEA expertise includes the modal and response spectrum analysis of Steel and RC frames, simple structural and stress analysis of steelwork connections (linear and Non-linear) and the dynamic and fatigue analysis of bespoke structural parts. We have a number of different software packages and techniques available to use, from basic hand calculations, through to complete finite element analysis models using ANSYS. This enables us to tailor our services and offer a cost effective solution.
Tensis offer an independent timber design services to timber frame manufacturers, builders and individual self-builders. Services include a complete timber framing service from design through construction to the final raising of the timber frame. We design structures to EuroCode 5 and utilize the latest 3D modeling and engineering software as well as the latest CAD/CAM planning and production software. We offer the complete structural design and engineering service required to design, fabricate and install engineered timber building structures.
PV Mounting Design
We are a leading consultant in the design of PV mounting systems and structures. Employing our extensive experience in the structural design of lightweight & tensile structures, we offer design services for PV mounting systems where materials specification and installation method related design are paramount in ensuring robust and economic performance.Tensis has successfully completed numerous projects in UK, Denmark, Greece and India of which we worked closely with clients from the project inception.
Steel & RC Design
We undertake conceptual, preliminary and detailed design projects using steel or Reinforced Concrete including seismic analysis and complex 3D dynamic modeling using Finite Element Analysis (FEA).
We also provide RC detailing and bar scheduling services in UK and we can provide detailing drawings for RC elements on request. Please contact us and we will be happy to provide you with a competitive fee quotation for your package of work.
