Our Design Capabilities

Our Experienced Team are pleased to offer you a range of skills.

Structural Design & Analysis

This is carried out through various platforms such as Masterseries, Spacegass, Tedds and Robot. Our designers have wide ranging experience in detailed design of steel, pressure vessels, pipework, concrete, geotechnical and timber.

Connection Design – Finite Element Design

Connection design is carried out using Component Based Finite Element Techniques, which is currently trending to replace the traditional static design methods. By embracing these plastic redistribution techniques, we can offer great flexibility of design, improved efficiencies of material and consumables and an all-round saving of time and value to our clients.

BIM Modelling

Our team are highly trained and BIM compliant. They are highly experienced in a range of platforms, and capable of compatibility conversion techniques to share models in a range of mediums for ease of review by our clients. We operate a range of BIM software mediums to facilitate clash detection and ensure a cohesive integration with building envelope designers.

3D & 4D Timeline Modelling

Murphy Ireland boast a range of photorealism 3D & 4D software tools to provide our clients with animated walk-throughs, which demonstrate constructability, sequencing, lift appraisal and geometric constraints. We have capabilities to assimilate static and dynamic models into geolocation coordinates to visualise structures in their real environment.

Temporary Works Design & Coordinators

Our experienced Temporary Works Engineers are competent to offer solutions for below ground and above ground applications. We can offer FEA techniques for lifting plates and brackets as well as bespoke grillage designs for temporary works design.
