Infrastructure is a fundamental aspect of successful project delivery. DRA Global’s dedicated professionals provide comprehensive project management, engineering and design capabilities across the infrastructure, structural steel, concrete, marine and architectural disciplines. For more than three decades the organisation has assisted clients with requirements that range from conceptual engineering and detailed engineering, through to the provision of technical specifications and bid documentation for EPCM contracts, including project management and construction supervision. All projects adhere to approved specifications, from feasibility studies and initial ground breaking, to commissioning and final sign off.
DRA Global’s infrastructure team has provided design and drawing services for most of the structures, systems and facilities needed for successful project implementation.
The organisation’s drawing office utilises the latest design and modelling software packages to deliver total solutions including take-off quantities, 3D models, 2D layouts and rendered models for presentations and BIM services to meet any project requirement including safety, environmental and community development requirements.
DRA Global has designed structures both on land and in the marine environment. This includes marine structures of all descriptions, from permanent and temporary works to land-based industrial, commercial and residential buildings. Through specialist experience in numerical analysis and the use of FEA produces, the organisation carries out advanced dynamic or nonlinear analysis of any type of structure.
Services in structural analysis and steel component design include:
A broad spectrum of concrete engineering design includes heavy civil engineering infrastructure associated with both large- and small-scale projects and public and private sector developments. Sustainability is a key concern and the organisation is committed to delivering projects safely, with minimal environmental impact to ensure clients meet international industry specific environmental standards.
Structures in the mining, industrial, private and commercial sectors, include the following:
