A match made in heaven!
Being a member of the IDEA StatiCa team is a privilege, as we have the opportunity to work with people from the most innovative companies in the UK working on cutting edge projects. One such company is Kingscote Design Limited, which was established in 2012 and provides technical support and detailed design services to A J Morrisroe + Sons Ltd.
Problems solved with IDEA StatiCa Detail
Kingscote Design Limited is a specialist structural concrete and temporary works design consultancy and has one of the largest post-tensioned concrete design teams in the UK. They are particularly focused on integration both in relation to the design of temporary works and permanent works as well as the integration of design and construction.
Being an innovation driver, Kingscote Design Limited was one of the early adopters of IDEA StatiCa Detail and a user of the underlying CSFM method, which is a big improvement over the current approach proposed in the code, the strut & tie methodology for discontinuity regions.
IDEA StatiCa Detail proved to be an indispensable tool in the experienced hands of Kingscote Engineers during the execution of two iconic projects, where this tool was used in numerous places. In this article, we picked two very interesting use cases that proved to be very challenging for the currently established design methodologies.
