SERVICES AND EXPERTISE
Honeycomb has a skilled team, well versed in the delivery of projects of all sizes, from feasibility through to occupancy. We pride ourselves on our ability to develop sound, constructible and cost-effective designs for new builds, and to assess existing structures (whether concrete, steel, masonry, or wood) and provide swift but well-considered opinions and recommendations for proposed additions, modifications, or renovation work. Our team’s technical proficiency also extends into more unique areas of structural engineering – cold formed steel studs, precast concrete, shoring design, retention of heritage structures, and overbuild of existing structures.
The design of multi-family residential projects requires a thorough understanding of the entire development and construction process, and thus the importance of early, accurate definition of a cost-efficient, constructible structural system. We understand the requirements of the sales/marketing team, the nature of the municipal approvals process, the effect of heritage components, the value of efficient rebar detailing, and the overall need for responsiveness and flexibility at all stages of the development.
Working within an existing building presents constraints and opportunities that our team is prepared to explore and embrace. Honeycomb’s advanced proficiency in all material types allows us to bring an enhanced level of creativity to the development of the best-suited of the many unique solutions for the project. Combining the more popular materials – concrete, structural steel, and masonry – with steel studs, timber, uni-strut, fibre-reinforced-polymers, to name a few, allows us to offer more efficient designs resulting in more cost-effective budgets.
