Industrial and commercial

ARC Engineers is experienced in all aspects of Commercial and Industrial projects including office developments, retail schemes, warehouses and production facilities. Our structural design team specialises in four areas of industrial projects:


  • Infrastructure

  • Foundations

  • Floor slabs

  • Superstructure steelwork


These elements should not be considered in isolation. Good foundation design can help reduce the weight of steelwork; expert assessment of ground conditions can result in economic foundations, floor slabs and infrastructure design.




ARC Engineers can undertake the design of all infrastructure work associated with industrial and commercial developments including:


  • Ground improvement works and external surfacing design to car parks, yard slabs and access roads tailored to suit subsurface conditions, appropriate levels of axle loads and vehicle movements

  • Drainage network designs and storage calculations for attenuation purposes.



Foundations can be one of the most expensive parts of any project and ARC Engineers has the necessary skills to be able to determine the most cost effective substructure solution for any given site and building. Piling, ground improvement, strip and trench footings, pad bases, ground beams and reinforced concrete rafts can all be designed by ARC Engineers.




Floor slabs

Floor slab designs and construction details for large bay pours or conventional strip construction.




Superstructure and steelworks

Getting the right structural frame for the functions of the building is paramount. Using the latest analytic and design software our consultants can swiftly develop several options to determine economic spans and member sizes, overall tonnages of steel for costing purposes and foundation reactions to enable back-to-back design with the substructure works.
