Ask anybody: What makes a real engineer?
And everybody will answer: A real engineer is one who designs bridges!
For that reason alone, even if we disregard all the other designs ISC has produced, ISC consists of real engineers. ISC designs bridges, lots of bridges.
Large and small, long and short, wide and narrow, high and low, fixed and moveable. Everywhere. All over the world.
The aura of marvellousness originally connected to the offshore business – the establishing of regular islands on legs far out in the sea populated by tough men with helmets and big gloves, struggling with heavy equipment in howling winds and huge waves – has somewhat diminished.
Nowadays “offshore” has become a household word like many others in modern business life.
With more than 35 years of experience within the offshore oil- and gas sector, ISC has accumulated a comprehensive offshore structural expertise.
Since then ISC has successfully added the detailed design of more than 15 offshore substations to the list and this portfolio clearly demonstrates the comprehensive expertise within the field of offshore substation design including a broad spectrum of topside layouts, as well as jacket and monopile substructures.
The term house building covers a very large variety of building types and utilizations ranging from what are normally on your mind when thinking of house building, namely blocks of flats or family houses, to a number of more or less specialized buildings: schools, nursing homes, office buildings, canteens, exhibition buildings, parish halls, kindergartens and student hostels.
Through the years ISC has gained comprehensive knowledge and much experience concerning all aspects regarding the planning, construction and operation of airports.
An airport is a complicated machine where passengers, baggage, cargo and catering meet the aircraft and its crew and where a team of skilled mechanics has ensured the proper maintenance of the aircraft and a team of skilled air traffic controllers will organize safe maneuvering of the many aircrafts on ground as well as in the air.
In the early days of industrialism more than a century ago, an industrial plant often contained an imposing main building – with more than just offices – and in addition to that a Klondike of odd shaped building volumes budding and deliberately hidden behind the dignified main building, but distinctly signaling the nature and purpose of the factory’s activities.
With 7,000 km coastline and 400 islands, Denmark always has been a country and a population in close connection to the sea and its role as a both separating and connecting element.
Through the years ISC has designed many rather different projects with relation to the sea.
Client consultancy is one of ISC’s key services, especially in connection with tender invitations to turnkey contracts for building assignments. The client’s consultant always acts as the client’s delegate in all matters.
In case of turnkey contracts the design and the construction of the project is entrusted to a contractor and the consultant is selected on the basis of the client’s requirements with regards to the purpose of the structure, the function, the space, the quality etc. stated in the building program.
ISC designs process installations for both oil and gas processing and for the utility systems off- and onshore.
ISC has more than 20 years of experience with the design of process installations.
A process installation can consist of production wells; separators for oil, gas and water; pumps for transportation of the various phases and compressors to compress the gas before it is sent ashore.
From the first hesitant beginning in the middle of the 19th century with the railroads between Copenhagen and Roskilde and Elsinore respectively, the building of railways accelerated; and around the turn of the century and in the beginning of the 20th century the railways were numerous and the plans for new sections were even more numerous.
ISC has followed today’s trend and has set focus on sustainability in the design of buildings. Clients will receive the best possible advice on the most favourable solutions, based on the full analysis of the cost-effectiveness of various relevant sustainable measures.
In the early design phase the dialogue is taken up with the architect and the builder, so that sustainable solutions are taken into careful consideration from the very beginning of the project and the most suitable energy- and resource-conserving measures can be implemented.
ISC possesses all the skills and tools to meet the requirements for “Digital Construction”.
“Digital Construction” is mostly used when an assignment is within the public sector. This way a general overview of all procedures is present from the idea to design, tender, building information model, faults, handover, management and operation of the building.
The increasing focus on public health has given every town and every school their own sports facilities – naturally varying in size – but every self-respecting small town has invested in sports centres enabling its inhabitants to engage in a diversity of sports.
Most of them are multi-functional centres for badminton, handball, tennis, volleyball and basketball. A true confusion of markings in different colours, but strangely enough no one is in doubt when playing.
Modern society uses an incredible amount of electricity for a vast array of purposes. Naturally, this results in a deep dependence on safe supplies, as was illustrated when a shortcut in a transformer in Sweden a few years ago left Copenhagen and most of Zealand without electricity for many hours when nothing worked.
Technical development in the field of computer technology is moving fast – very fast – and the programs for finite element analysis that were introduced in the middle of the 1960’s, have today developed into highly advanced programs needing special competence to fully utilize.
ISC has used finite element (FEM) programs for analysis since the middle of the 1970’s and has consequently generated the necessary expertise in the field of advanced FEM modelling and analysis.
