Construction Design Services

Barden Chapman’s Construction Engineering service provides engineering support to both contractors and owners during active construction. We also offer procurement-stage support when construction methods have substantial influence on the finished structure. 

Our services include the design of temporary works to facilitate the construction of permanent structures, the development of engineered procedures and sequences for construction and deconstruction of structure, the provision of alternative designs to suit preferred construction methods, and assistance to contractors and owners in addressing unexpected site conditions or errors in construction.
