The high density and rapid rate of development in the Hong Kong SAR has led to a need for skilled structural engineering services to meet the demands of owners and developers and the rigorous standards of design and supervision imposed by the Government.
ESA is fully familiar with the requirements of the Buildings Ordinance, supplementary regulations and practice notes that are used to control developments in the private sector. They are also cognizant of the requirements of Architectural Services Department, Housing Department and other quasi-government organizations for public sector works.
Conversant with Hong Kong practice, Chinese codes, British and other international standards, ESA is able to design solutions in a variety of construction materials. These include reinforced, pre-stressed and pre-cast concrete, structural steel, timber, masonry, aluminum, glass and others.
With knowledge and experience ESA is able to advise Clients on project feasibility, planning and investigations and can often suggest ways to shorten the approvals programme. This expertise is also used to improve works programmes by developing and justifying innovative and state-of-the-art construction techniques.
Authorized Person and Registered Structural Engineer services are also provided and building surveys, in accordance with the Buildings Department Safety Inspection Scheme, are undertaken. Planning of investigation works, preparation of demolition method statements, design of new buildings and structures, alterations and additions to existing structures and supervision during construction are all routinely administered by ESA.
