Erection Engineering and Site Logistics

Erection Engineering and Site Logistics

Site and Sound Theatre, Missouri

Structural members and assemblies experience different loading and support conditions during erection than in their completed state. Erection engineering addresses the structure in its incomplete state, including erection procedures, the adequacy of elements to be part of the permanent building and design of elements used as temporary erection aids. Our services include assistance with construction equipment selection, determining construction sequencing, estimating manpower and safety guidelines. We also assist the structural steel erector in the development of lift plans and rigging. Logistics, equipment and site planning services include engineering checks for crane capacity, investigation of soil conditions to support equipment and optimization of crane locations.

Stability Engineering

Stability Engineering

Consol Energy Center, Pittsburgh, PA

All structures are subject to temporary forces during construction. Sometimes these forces can be resisted without additional bracing but temporary support is required. Thornton Tomasetti provides stability engineering for all aspects of construction including long-span steel structures, sequencing of high-rise structures, larger concrete structures and substructures. These efforts are most often developed in collaboration with the installing contractor to develop a constructible and cost-effective solution.

Equipment and Logistics

Equipment and Logistics

Greenside Hangar, Quantico, VA

We provide logistics, equipment and site planning services to general contractors, fabricators and erectors to assist in bringing a project from the planning stage into the construction phase. This includes preliminary engineering checks for crane capacity and equipment selection, investigation of soil conditions and existing structures to support equipment, and optimization of crane locations for critical construction sites where crane capacity may dictate the construction order.
