"OUR ENGINEERS CONTRIBUTE HOLISTICALLY TO ALL PROJECTS, CROSSING TRADITIONAL PROFESSION BOUNDARIES TO STIMULATE CREATIVE THINKING AND ADDING HUGE VALUE FOR OUR CLIENTS." Michelle McDowell, chair of civil and structural engineering
Our civil and structural engineering teams are proactive in anticipating and solving challenges. We look to apply technology to refine design, increase efficiency and improve buildability.
As an established practice with over 50 years knowledge and experience in the industry we are outstanding communicators and our approach is integrated and collaborative working closely with the client, design and construction team. This and our creativity is what make us special.
What gives us an edge is our unique experience in contributing right from the start of projects, before the architects’ ideas begin to form.Michelle McDowell chair of civil and structural engineering
We are also an industry leader in the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM). This technology enables us to offer clients earlier visualisations, more accurate material quantities, better supply chain management and faster build schedules.
