Structural engineering

With the foundation of the office in 1963 Mr Jörss established the emphasis of structural engineering. Since then Jörss – Blunck – Ordemann offers planning services with emphasis on the planning stages 1 to 7 of the HOAI. Due to the proximity of the Elbe and the variety of waterways Hamburg offers a large number of challenges for the civil engineering.

Design planning (Structural planning / construction planning)

The range of services for the design planning consists of:

  • Elaboration of pre-design for permit
  • Obtainment of fundamental data
  • Performance of pre-design calculations
  • Elaboration of cost estimation
  • Preparation of plans for the stage of pre-design

Implementation planning (Structure planning / construction planning)

The structure planning is one of the core competences in the field of structural engineering. As structural engineer we take over the following tasks:

  • Calculations and interpretation of bridge constructions in the field of road construction and transfer lines (like pipe bridges)
  • Preparation of structural calculations for the subsections solid, steel, aluminium, glass and timber construction and geotechnics
  • Performance of complex calculations with the help of the FE-method. Therefore we utilize programs like Infograph, RFEM or ANSYS
  • Creation of position and execution plans
  • Creation of formwork drawing and reinforcement plans


Our team uses the accumulated experience and knowledge as structural engineer to operate as examiner for the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, the LSBG, the EBA and other licensing authorities. We take over the following tasks:

  • Examination in the field of steel construction, solid construction and timber construction (GK3)

Construction supervision

Our engineers supervise the construction sites in respect of examination, consultation and supervision as structural engineer.
