Be it a school or an administration building, a hospital or a sports venue, a residential quarter or a commercial centre – people’s requirements are increasingly being shaped by a desire for security, comfort, and sustainability. In short: by a desire for genuine living spaces.
For us structural engineers, what this primarily requires is an integral mindset embracing several disciplines. As such, we have long since been devoting greater efforts, for example, to the verification of sound and thermal protection.
Only an interdisciplinary approach is capable of producing such outstanding structures. With new materials and the very highest of requirements with regard to functionality and design. Not to mention economic efficiency and innovation. For structures that offer their users not only space, but living space.
