Theming Design

Theming is an integral part of providing the end-user with a well-rounded experience. Belt Engineering works seamlessly with the theming team to turn concepts into constructible cost-effective designs. As we evolve the concept and ideas with you, we’ll get into the details of the project. Our goal is to meet your budget and schedule to ensure maximum success.

ACCESSORY AND SPECIALTY STRUCTURES

Every part of a building is subject to the effect of outside forces and early specialty structural engineer involvement ensures these forces are taken into consideration over all aspects of the project prior to finalizing design. Your unique project requires experience and expertise to get the job done right. We plan, analyze, design, and oversee a variety of projects working harmoniously with owners, architects, general contractors, and ride manufacturers.

If you are looking to fast-track it’s often necessary to issue structural construction documents within demanding schedules. Close coordination between our engineers and other members of the design team is essential throughout the process. You can ease your mind knowing that we have project management experience to bring the project to completion efficiently.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Project management for theme design is made simple with Belt Engineering. Coordinating plans across disciplines to bring your idea to life requires a detail-oriented firm with experience. Keeping your project on track is our main focus.

We become a centralized person that you communicate with and we relay all relevant information to other parties working on the project. Our experience across a range of projects fuels our efficiency and customer satisfaction.

CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION

Many dynamic industry factors are accounted for during the design and construction process. The importance of an effective submittal process cannot be overstated and for this reason, the administration is a critical component of any project.

We work seamlessly with ownership and architects to provide a quick turnaround time and clear instruction to the general contractor for all RFIs, shop drawings and unforeseen field related questions.

STRUCTURAL & THRESHOLD (SPECIAL) INSPECTIONS

Evaluating structural competence is critical at any age of your project. Whether it is a new design or longstanding favorite, Belt Engineering offers structural inspections and Threshold (Special) Inspections to ensure the safety of the structures at your amusement park. Our team of engineers has the experience, training, and education to provide to inspect challenging coaster projects as well as conventional structures.

ESTIMATING

The process of estimating the cost of a project is a meticulous job. Our goal is to provide you with an accurate estimate, utilizing our experience on similar projects, so you are not surprised by unforeseen costs.

SHALLOW FOUNDATIONS

Shallow foundations are a type of building foundation that loads close to the earth instead of a subsurface layer. By distributing the structural loads over a wide horizontal area, we are able to support structures with a shallow depth to resist the forces acting on the foundation while achieving the stiffness requirements set forth by the ride manufacture.

DEEP FOUNDATIONS

Structural elements that transfer loads through weak, compressible soils to competent soils or rock are deep foundations. These are used for existing structures and installed prior to building construction as well. We can provide the optimal depth solution for your project.

TEMPORARY SHORING

Excavation shoring can be complex and takes many factors into account including the depth of cuts, groundwater elevations, soil considerations and more. Shoring provides a means of safety and greatly improve the utilization of site development.

Projects are often being constructed within the constricted site. Belt Engineering’s experience in working on challenging sites allows us to identify areas that will require shoring early in the design process.

RETAINING WALLS AND SITE WALLS

Retaining walls are used to keep soils in place that would otherwise slide naturally. They provide long-term structural stability when done right. Engineering retaining walls is a critical construction component.

TRENCH AND TUNNEL DESIGN

Trenches and tunnel design is paramount to provide a unique experience to the end-user and as such our engineers are equipped to take full responsibility for designing these challenging elements with a cost-effective solution.

PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE DESIGN

Pedestrian bridge design considers the site conditions to ensure the safety of passage. A lot of pedestrian bridges are located in spaces subjected to harsh elements or in remote areas. They must be designed to provide performance and durability as required for the intended use.
