Geostructural Design

3D Finite Element Software – provides in-house capability for modelling structures in 3 dimensions, using finite element methods in an AutoCAD environment.

Housedeck® and Comdeck® are complete design and build packages. Abbey Pynford’s in-house Design Department provides detailed pile layout drawings, slab design, bending schedules and calculations for submission to Local Authority Building Control (LABC) or NHBC. The design software Sofistik is one of the most advanced flat slab software packages in Europe. This software allows piles to be relocated on screen and immediately produces pile loads and reinforcing steel requirements thus allowing a prompt response in addressing the presence of obstructions such as tree roots and man made obstructions.
