Structural Engineering Designs of Propping System
Wilkie Civil Engineering has provided structural engineering consultancy services for the part or whole demolition of various buildings (residential and commercial) in the Perth Metropolitan Region.
Wilkie provided efficient engineering design solutions for the assessment of existing suspended slabs for the use of plant and equipment to perform the demolition works. This includes traditional reinforced slabs, pretensioned slabs and precast decking systems. Engineering checks were performed on adjacent structures to design efficient propping system to maintain their stability and functionality during demolition works. Challenges overcome included analysing old buildings without structural drawings and limited client budget.
Wilkie worked with Delta group to develop the most efficient demolition strategy with minimal propping while remaining on schedule.
