Structural design

The company “Descon” makes calculations and develops the required project documentation for post-tensioned structures being applied in construction of civil, industrial buildings, sports or other facilities. We do have the necessary permits and licences for designing and projects are developed in accordance with the European standards – Euro Code (EC2) or in compliance with the Russian standards SNiP/SP.
 
Design of post-tensioned structures and calculations are made using modern software being provided by the companies – “ADAPT Corporation” and “SOFiSTiK AG”. The given software tools allows us to do complex design calculations for buildings and structures. In particular, for buildings and parking facilities of reinforced concrete, slab-on-ground, foundation, load-bearing beams and bridge structures.
 
Development of a new post-tensioning system design
 
It is possible to order development of a design for an object to be constructed applying the technology of post-tensioned reinforced concrete. This progressive construction method has the advantages of extending the architectural and structural possibilities and solutions. The technical and economic benefits from application of post-tensioning technology can be assessed already at the design stage. It should be noted that this technology among other things allows reducing the costs of materials and speeding up the construction time.
 
Optimization of an existing project (design)
 
Rather often the construction of an existing project of monolithic reinforced concrete can be optimized reducing total costs and improving overall structural performance. In practice it can be achieved by applying tensioned structural elements that are capable of withstanding the necessary loads. Optimization of the existing project also enables to achieve improved economic performance and reduce the construction time.
