Fevia Ltd was founded in the December of 2009, based on our previous successful cooperation as a group of independent engineers during the span of 2007 to 2009.
What we focus on
As an agile team of experienced engineers, we deliver a complete analysis and design of structures - from preliminary concepts to execution documentation. Although steel structures are our main area of expertise, we are also capable of development and design of related concrete structures with our external partners.
How we work
Through the experience of our key associates, we combine long-established hand procedures in the preliminary design with progressive FE methods for detailed structural analysis and connection detail design. Software solutions are complemented by our bespoke in-house spreadsheets based on the latest codes and ECCS, SCI and ICE publications. The designed structures are modelled, reviewed and shared with our partners using BIM tools.
Our engineers have a background working in structural design offices in Austria, France and Hongkong. Our designs are to be found in Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Spain, Algeria, Egypt or South Africa.
