Whether it is a simple double storeyed residential villa in Tamilnadu or Maharashtra, a structural engineer plays a crucial role, especially Structural engineering have to ensure that they follow all the guidelines while taking care of both durability and safety aspects. Safety is the most critical aspects that structural engineers will need to look into. While architects focus chiefly on the visual appeal of a structure, it is up to the structural engineers to take care of all the technical aspects. The most crucial person who decides a lot in the entire construction process is the structural engineer. Therefore structural engineers will have to keep all the safety regulations in mind. Apart from safety durability is also another critical aspect. There cannot be any compromise in the quality of material used in the structure, because it can be highly risky in the long term. While constructing a villa, a structural engineer plays a crucial role, especially with regards to safety as the well the durability of the structure. Whether it is a residential structure or commercial structures, architects to play a crucial role in construction. These architects are also responsible for the visual appeal of the villas. There was a time when the aesthetic appeal of the villa was considered secondary, but now architects look beyond all this and look in the functionality as much as the aesthetic appeal. Architects have a lot to do from the beginning stage of deciding on the structures right up to the final structural design.
When deciding to building design, one of the most crucial aspects that the designers and engineers have to make provision for is the safety aspect. A building should be able to withstand natural calamities like heavy winds and rain, as well as disasters like earthquakes. Another thing to look for is for fire safety. Fire Protection Consultants will guide on this aspect as Fire safety standards are mandatory in most places around the world. A fire can start due to many reasons, and it could be due to a short circuit, or due to natural disasters. A building has to be constructed in such a way that the risk of a fire accident is minimized. As stated in the saying “better safe than sorry,” the same holds true in the case of fire accidents. When it comes to finishes, especially internal finishes, there is a possibility that this could itself be a source for the fire to begin, because they can be highly ignitable and combustible. Materials used for building such as textiles, plastics, and even furniture have different risks for fire. Some catch fire easily while some don’t. Structural engineers and building designers have to make provision for fire safety, and some of them include fire extinguishers at every floor, fire alarm systems that detect smoke and the occupants of the building are informed about it. The fire should be contained as fast as possible to prevent it from spreading to other parts of the building. The idea of having such a safety precaution is to ensure that the damage through fire is contained as fast as possible.
