We encourage our team to spend time on site so that they understand the complexities of the live environment and appreciate how their contribution impacts the overall project. Our Civil Engineers have a broad knowledge of civil engineering assets i.e. bridges, earth retention and buried structures.
You will find that our design teams and supply chain are proactive in seeking buildable solutions that fit the project constraints. VEDA is a reactive consultant that understands the importance of rapid engineering support to the success of civil engineering projects such as; embankment stabilisation, bridge bearings, tunnel relining.
Between our broad in-house capabilities and our robust supply chain, we offer clients a single source for a range of engineering design services – from project inception through to handover.
We have the skills and experience to understand and deliver your brief in line with your budget and programme constraints. We are skilled at developing client remits and providing engineering innovation that considers both the end product and buildability.
We are lead consultants in the rail sector and well versed in the assurance of Network Rail and London Underground projects. Members of our rail team have undertaken Contractors Responsible Engineer (CRE) and Contractors Engineering Manager (CEM) roles for Network Rail that enables them to sign off assurance documents and engineering management plans.
In addition to our in-house skills we work collaboratively with our trusted supply chain to provide OLE, Track, Signals, Telecommunication and Electrical capabilities. VEDA are able to deliver the large multi-disciplinary projects, whilst maintaining our high standards and personal approach.
Whether it be an existing building, foundation or a bridge our team have extensive experience in the reuse of existing assets and the knowledge to strengthen and extend the design life of such structures.
We will provide advice on the most commercially viable and practical design solution that could also include demolition and replacement if the future design life cannot be guaranteed or the testing is to be prohibitively expensive.
The Structural Engineering team at VEDA Associates provides clients with a highly professional structural engineering consultancy service. We work closely and cooperatively with our clients and invest time in understanding our clients’ objectives.
We are experienced in a vast range of building types and structural materials and deliver coordinated three-dimensional designs. We deliver a wide range of projects from small extensions to new multi-storey buildings and provide the same innovative and cost-effective design approach for both.
VEDA’s field engineers are well equipped to conduct detail examinations and analyse structural and civil engineering assets of all ages to determine residual service life.
We are employed by both maintenance and reactive works contractors to undertake both visual and detail examinations of buildings and rail structures. On the emergency response works our engineers will analyse the structure and provide a temporary works solution to prevent progressive failure and where possible maintain the use of the structure until a permanent solution is installed.
VEDA Associates have a dedicated temporary works team that are employed by National Contractors to act as their temporary works designer. Our temporary works expertise includes; hoardings for highways and rail environments, ground support, façade retention, propping & hydraulic jacking of bridges and structures, pipe jacking & thrust walls, damming & over-pumping, tower and mobile crane lifts, and automated monitoring systems.
We work closely with our client to understand the construction methodology, site and project constraints to develop an innovative temporary work solution that utilises where appropriate the latest techniques, products and machinery.
