Consultancy, Design & Engineering

With our innovative design, manufacturing and installation facilities across continents, Grankraft crafts grandeur globally.

Our team always strives to achieve the best solutions, develop innovative and optimised structures, and build envelopes considering optimal performance, constructability, budget, and programme constraints. This process starts with the team being fully aware of the client’s and designer’s vision. We collaborate with architects, contractors and owners through all project stages, from early concept design through project completion and operation.

Our Approach & Process

We develop sophisticated solutions, combining our engineering expertise with our superior craftsmanship to form elaborate structures with high quality general and feature metalwork, glass and specialist materials and finishes.

Being involved in the early stages of the design allows us to assist the project team in developing specific solutions considering the principles of engineering and fabrication. We understand that design is an iterative process and meeting the technical and architectural challenges of it is at the core of our business.p

We see ourselves as dedicated partners to develop better solutions considering an economical production and optimised logistics without compromising quality nor the design intent.

Our design packages include but are not limited to:

  • Etabs
  • SAP 2000
  • ROBOT
  • Stad pro
  • Ansys
  • Strand
  • Tekla
  • Advance Steel
  • Solid Works
  • Rhinoceros, Grasshopper
  • Revit, Dynamo
  • CREO
  • Inventor
  • 3d Max

Design & Engineering Services & Capabilities

  • Advanced Geometry Solutions

    We operate as a mediator between architectural geometry and engineering, integrating engineering calculations within parametric models. This means that we can quickly generate our own efficient design engineering options to be reviewed by the wider project teams.

  • Architectural Coordination

    We believe the best architecture comes from a synthesis of all the elements that separately comprise and inform the character of a building: the structure that holds it up; the services that allow it to function and its ecology. By working together creatively from the start of a project, architects and engineers combine their knowledge to devise integrated, sustainable design solutions.

  • Art and Installations

    We work in the creative construction and manufacturing industry. We move towards a more innovation and knowledge-led business that still has fabrication at its heart. The innovation is a function of us having to solve problems in unusual ways, perhaps because of artistic intent, budgetary, programme or physical constraints. We are constantly finding new solutions to problems in creative ways for the creative industries.

  • BIM Specialists

    We have maintained a very pragmatic approach to BIM that complements the industry-wide BIM approach. We are specialised on a Parametric BIM approach, which has been used in large and geometrically complex projects such as Sheybarah Resort and Al Zahia City Centre.

  • Compliance

    When an idea becomes a physical asset with value and usefulness, it represents the culmination of a long process. The construction phase bridges the gap between the concept on paper and a tangible asset. Properly managing this critical phase requires stringent planning and logistics.

  • Environmental Engineering

    Environmental systems must be conceptualised in harmony with the architecture to support sustainable development. We specialise in MEP engineering; sustainable environmental analysis; sustainable environmental master planning and infrastructure engineering.

  • Fit Out

    Utilising our in-house network of specialist contractors, coupled with our extensive local and international supply chain we offer a complete interior solution, fulfilling the need for project management, engineering, value engineering, design-build, procurement, and fit-out all under one contractor, to the highest standards of workmanship.

  • Materials R&D

    We look at current and new materials, products, companies, technology, innovation, sustainability, and technical issues. We come across with business solutions to help our teams and clients find cutting edge material solutions to fulfil every and any requirement.

  • Pre-Contract Design Collaboration

    Project structures have evolved from straight-forward client-consultant-contractor relationships to more integrated structures with complex financing arrangements, early engagement of the supply chain, and the introduction of contractor and supplier design. We establish early-stage collaborative practices on building design and construction projects, facilitating a smooth transition for the project from design to construction, avoiding duplication of work and contractual gaps on the scope of works which translate into a more design integrated and cost-effective final product.

  • Specification Advice

    We collaborate with designers and consultants at early stages of the projects and provide free of cost advice to facilitate their production of specifications. We provide support by contributing to guidance, research and development of the technical design, and documentation.

  • Structural Engineering

    The structural team works on the design and delivery of projects all around the world. The design ethos of the team is to find the most efficient resolution to the structural challenges of a particular project. The team has the technical knowledge and experience to address projects of varying scales and complexity. There is a strong emphasis on research and development, with senior members of the team contributing to design guidance of the UAE Construction Industry.

  • Surveys

    Whether for a single project or as part of a larger program, our team brings your design to life with a sharp focus on cost, schedule compliance, safety, and risk management. We closely monitor construction activities and offer advice on issues such as constructability, contract packaging, coordination of contractors, temporary work requirements, supply chain capacity, and capability.
