What We Do
Optimum Design Private Limited
Optimum Design is a structural engineering firm located in Noida. We provide services to developers, owners, architects, government enterprises, and contractors. Our portfolio includes projects of all sizes and complexities ranging from independent homes to townships housing 5000+ families. For 25 years, our primary approach has been to provide innovative yet economical structural systems and designs having optimized performance.
We offer a broad spectrum of structural engineering services from project inception to project completion.
Our excellence in structural design is visible in more than 500 projects and more than 150 million square feet of area. Our projects include some of the most challenging and ground-breaking structures designed in a cost-effective manner.
In addition to providing increased confidence in consistency and constructability of design and drawings, our peer reviews can add tremendous value to your project. We minutely study the design documents, models, and drawings to identify areas of under or over-design. Our recommendations which are focused on value engineering, performance enhancement, and code compliance can transform your project.
Restoration and Renovation
We leverage our experience in structural design to restore and renovate vulnerable structures. The structure could be restored to meet the latest codes, or the performance objective specified by the owner. Our focus is to preserve the original structure while allowing maximum occupancy during the restoration process.
Performance Based Design
Performance Based Design
When conventional codes are either inadequate or don't make sense, performance based design is the way to go. Upon finalizing the performance objective with the owner, we conduct multiple iterations using advanced analysis techniques such as non linear time-history analyses until those objectives are met. Ensuring that the resulting structure not only meets the performance criteria but exceeds code expectations as well.
Our infrastructural services include bridge design, bridge launching scheme design, retaining wall design and Building Information Modelling (BIM). We have designed or launched numerous bridges including foot over bridges, rail over bridges, road over bridges and culverts.
Site Specific Hazard
Site Specific Hazard
While planning an important, special, or landmark structure, site specific hazard assessment can either be an additional assurance measure or a code requirement. We perform probabilistic seismic hazard analyses (PSHA) modelling all the sources capable of producing significant shaking at the site and the probable distribution of all such sources. The deliverables include the Uniform Hazard Spectrum (UHS), selected time-histories and deaggregation for the site.
We are a team of dedicated professionals consisting of project managers, engineers, draughtsmen, administrative staff and contractual staff led by....
