NIDA can do all of this and more, however it is our aim to make our clients self profficient through the use of our software by working and learning as one.


At NIDA, we integrate safety with every action we make. As highly qualified Engineers, our training and education have firm foundations in safe working practices. The methods we promote and the software we produce give our clients a close understanding of a structure in its environment.

A more accurate and efficent structure is the result and greater flexibility in layout and manufacture is possible. The upper hand may be gained in todays competitive market to offer a more robust and safer steel structure with members working as they should. NIDA considers ductility, redundancy and redistribution of moments which are important factors for safe structural designs.

Nida removes uncertainy.

Nida works to prevent progressive collapse.

Nida delivers the power to our clients to mitigate disproportionate damage in highly unlikely events.

  • Guidance
  • Knowledge
  • Expertise in all environments
  • Risks assessed
  • Workable and acurate method statements
  • Real and buildable solutions can be achieved

Through our software and services we help our customers make the safest and most economical structural selections.


Sustainability is our main motivation. Nida is a researcher, educator, knowledge provider and offers guidance through our software and services, bringing our clients upto date with the newest developments in structural engineering. 

  • Development of technical capability in our industry
  • Improving the knowledge of our colleagues
  • Providing competency for the integrated analysis and design of flexible structural assemblies
  • Promoting and delivering research in our field
  • Developing future advances in structural engineering
  • Supplying economic structures
  • Advancing for our community


Testing and calibration is a fundamental part of innovative designs or schemes that may require new concepts or solutions.

Through our bases at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Imperial College London and the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering Hong Kong PolyU we can offer our customers current and modern testing facilities.

Results and characteristics from tests can then be integrated into Nida models for further refinement and structural system economy.

Testing can be extended onto projects and in the field as client and research needs dictate.
