How We Help  ↓

Practical solutions to your structural engineering problems


Building Design

Design of new buildings and structures to suit what you need. We have experience in everything from small residential projects to large multi-storey commercial buildings, and everything in between. We have experience with buildings of varying importance levels including IL4 post disaster structures with SLS2 requirements.

Alterations to Existing Structures

Review of existing structures and design of extensions and modifications. We can work direct for you on smaller projects or with an Architect of your choosing for larger projects.

Seismic Assessments

We can complete the seismic assessment of your commercial building with straight forward easy to understand advice. We do not just jump straight into an assessment, but first review the building and suggest the assessment that is right for you.

Seismic Restraint of Non-Structural items

We have experience in the design of seismic restraint of plant and ceilings to NZS 4219.

Construction Monitoring

We can oversee the construction of the structural elements designed by us and others to achieve compliance with building consent requirements.

More About us

Strengthening Existing Buildings

With existing buildings it is always important to get an idea of what we are working with up front. Our first step typically involves review the existing plans, where available, followed by a visit to the building. From here we can then get into what is required.

Designing New Buildings

For new buildings it is important for us to understand what you want and why. Sometimes the why can be more important than the what, and can change our direction at an early stage.
