Structural engineering

Vasko+Partner’s structural engineering focuses on resource-saving, lean, and economical construction. We view the architecture and the structural framework of buildings as symbiotic. Accordingly, we attach great importance to close collaboration with architects whose concepts we translate into structures. Vasko+Partner undertakes projects of any size, from loft conversions to high-rise buildings.

We use all kinds of materials: concrete, reinforced concrete, steel, wood, and glass, as well as composites and high-tech products. The special know-how we have acquired, including economic factors, based on experience, for instance, in practical and theoretical calculations and engineering, is vital not only to the design of structures but also with a view to cost-effectiveness and architectural as well as aesthetic aspects.

  • Steel construction

    One of our core capabilities in structural engineering is steel design. We use our in-depth knowledge in this field to design the structure that best fits your project, always in line with our principle of producing delicate, sustainable concepts.

    We calculate structures in collaboration with renowned steel companies and monitor their assembly on site to completion to achieve fast design and construction processes for you.

  • Reinforced concrete construction

    Reinforced concrete – a composite of concrete and reinforcing steel – is a suitable material for many major projects with sophisticated architectural features.

    We make use of its compressive and tensile strengths and prepare the most economical concept including precise structural design for your reinforced concrete building.

  • Wood construction

    We appreciate wood as a sustainable building material – not just for framing.

    At the design stage, we assess options for sensible and economical wood construction. There are a variety of possibilities to use wood in construction: in conventional roof trusses and roof structures for halls, but also in urban densification projects.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

  • Delicate roof structures

    Whether steel, wood or glass – we design the ideal roof structure for your building. We claim that less is more, based on our conviction that load-carrying structures should be unobtrusive, lending lightness to buildings. Only in this way can delicate roof constructions be realised.

    We calculate the maximum bearing load in advance and generously allow for potential loads.

  • Buildings as art

    As a matter of course, our approach is to transform ideas into realizable concepts: we put ourselves into artists´ minds and create the planning bases for the execution of their works of art.

    In the resulting delicate constructions, structural aspects are rendered secondary to make ample room for artistic expression.

  • Reviews of structural analyses

    To put you on the safe side, we review the design prepared for a particular structure for potential risks, recalculate the results of the structural analysis and confirm or complement the structural design. We check both the dimensions of the structure and the economic efficiency of the calculations.
