Who are structural engineers and what do they do?

If we think of a structure as a human body, then structural engineers design and maintain the skeleton. They are the guardians of public safety, ensuring that buildings and bridges are strong enough to withstand all kinds of stresses and strains.

They are a key part of the design and construction team, working alongside architects to create and maintain all kinds of structure - from houses and skyscrapers to sports stadia and oil rigs.

They are creative, trustworthy problem solvers who shape all aspects of our built environment, developing innovative solutions to allow construction in the most challenging environments.
