Our civil and structural team is committed to providing sustainable, creative & efficient engineering solutions for our communities.

How can we help?

Our civil and structural engineers work with each client to realise their vision, providing a full range of professional services from concept development through construction. We understand that each project and client are unique, and work closely with our clients to design projects that meet their goals, while balancing site constraints, the environment, and costs.

All our site design work is completed by a collaborative team of engineers, landscape architects, and environmental scientists, including LEED and low impact development specialists. We strive to maintain the most up-to-date knowledge of advanced site design processes and to minimise our environmental impact in all our work.

We understand that civic development requires a balance of meeting the needs of community leaders and the public, while also being mindful of funding constraints. Additionally, we provide a full range of structural consultation for our clients, including architects, developers, contractors, private clients, local authorities, and government entities. Our team is focused on creating people-oriented designs for the development of the places that truly connect and nurture communities, developing strong ties to the residents they serve.
