Among the focal points of our activity is the structural engineering of chemical and petrochemical industrial plants.
Various production plants are operated worldwide whose load-bearing structures have been planned in our company. As a rule, we work on the basis of the Eurocodes.
However, where usual structural engineering norms do not suffice, we reach special agreements with our customers to conduct our assessment based on available alternative rules, for instance, US guidelines.
This is particularly the case where there is a need to consider special forces (such as unforeseeable impacts, explosions and earthquakes) or where exceptional safety requirements are of the utmost priority.
