Tungsten Structures is niched tightly. We are thus the nation’s leading structural engineering experts in the industrial building sector for the following services:

Structural Engineering

  • preliminary sketch designs (accurate to within 2% of our final design) for project tenders
  • construction documentation delivered as 3D ifc models, 2D pdf drawings, and 2D CAD drawings
  • construction support services from our dedicated site engineering team

Value Engineering

  • reviewing and reporting on your current structural engineers’ designs to remove the inefficiencies, including over-complicated concepts, over-rationalised member-sizing, outdated approaches, systems, and materials, and robotic cut-and-paste solutions
  • reducing the structural materials used for your existing design by 10-40% (otherwise, we don’t charge a fee)


  • re-designing and re-documenting a project’s structural steelwork trade to allow for the inclusion and ‘deemed-to-comply’ certification of an international steelwork solution
  • re-designing and re-documenting a project’s structural steelwork trade with the steel fabricator, allowing you to pass on the design risk (partnering with AG Rigging & Steel, we have delivered multiple successful projects in this manner over the years)
  • re-designing and re-documenting the slab-on-ground trade of the project to allow for substitution of an existing jointed conventionally reinforced system for a jointless fibre or jointless post-tensioned reinforced solution

Whilst we maintain a tight niche, we have considerable expertise in all of the various industrial-sector building types, including:

  • ambient warehouses

  • gantry-crane warehouses

  • cold-store warehouses

  • food-processing warehouses

  • automated warehouses

  • high-bay warehouses

  • big-box retail stores

This is a typical example of our clear, concise, and uniquely presented structural engineering documentation package for a 16,500 m2 ambient warehouse with high-level footings, jointless fibre-reinforced slabs on the ground, jointed conventionally reinforced external pavements, portal-framed roof, and dado concrete panel walls with a two-storey office constructed with a suspended conventionally reinforced band beam-slab system.

This example drawing set is from one of our 2022 projects. It includes the entire general arrangement set of drawings, footing set-out plans, slab and footing plans, external pavement plan, roof framing plan, purlin framing plan, elevations and sections, suspended floor, and reinforcement plans that we include as standard. The set excludes our structural specification and detailing to keep the example project anonymous.
