Structural Design

Having specialised in large span, tall and innovative structures. MRC had opportunities to take on great structural challenges in designing commercial, residential institutional and industrial buildings. For every project under taken, MRC prepares design criteria which may go beyond the minimum local codes to ensure safety and durability of the building. MRC takes into consideration seismic, wind loads, where relevant snow loading and salinity in the environment, blast resistance, sound attenuation, equipment loadings and special occupancy requirements.

MRC selects structural systems uniquely appropriate for each project considering project locality, construction methodology, effectiveness of various structural materials, architectural expressions, strength and stiffness requirements, environmental durability, sensitivities to sound and vibrations, initial and long term costs, response to catastrophic events and the functional needs of the occupancy.
