Based on years of experience and participation in post-earthquake reconstruction in Posočje, Slovenia, we specialize in Earthquake Reconstruction and rehabilitation of buildings. We make you a complete reconstruction building project, taking into account the actual technical characteristics of the structure in compliance with the European design codes EUROCODES.
We produce project documentation for all types of building structures, reinforcement plans for RC structures, fabrication plans for steel structures, fire resistance calculation of building structures including consultation on the most appropriate fire protection if it is needed. We are authorized to revise the project documentation of complex objects too.
Based on the experience which the holder of structural engineering design Primoz Kvaternik gained in the structural engineering company Gradis BP, we also produce project documentation of bridges and bridging structures. We use the latest state of the technology and implementation of contemporary European regulations for bridges EUROCODE EN 1991-2, EN 1992-2 and others.
To ensure adequate seismic safety of structures we use the latest findings in the field of earthquake engineering. We design structures so that we select special parts of the structure and force them to behave in a ductile manner, where seismic energy is dissipated. The other parts of the structure are so dimensoned using over design factor which means with some additional capacity. In short, we design the capacity of the structure so, that failure occurs just in ductile parts of the structure, where damages are not so crucial for the structure. This design approach is inevitable in the design of multi-storey buildings or facilities of the wider social significance because it provides in addition to the load bearing capacity of the structure also the ability to survive large plastic deformations which occurs at strong earthquakes.
We are authorized also to revise structural engineering projects, for which we have an appropriate license of Slovenian Chamber of Engineers (IZS). The revision verifies that structural engineering project fulfills the essential requirements of mechanical resistance and stability, fire resistance, safety in use and others.
