Buildings and Structures
Xi Engineering Consultants offer a wide range of services to the construction and property development industries. Xi have worked on improving building acoustics and performing completions testing for rating partition walls as well as at designing floors and tuned mass dampers for removing problematic resonances within buildings. Some of Xi’s modelling work has involved identifying areas with high background vibration levels to find ideal locations for housing sensitive machinery and workshop equipment. Xi also examine the effects of external noise and vibration sources such as road and rail infrastructure and design mitigation against ground-borne vibration.
As well as internal building dynamics, Xi have been involved in looking at the planning side of new developments. Performing environmental impact assessments and creating environmental statement chapters for submission to planning is also one of Xi Engineering’s services. On top of creating the documents, Xi Engineering can also review technical documents on behalf of planning committees and for third party reviews before final submission.
