Home-as-a-sanctuary Structure - Structural Engineering Consultants

Our Why

Homes are a safe space, a shelter and sanctuary, a retreat from the world. It is where family happens.

“It has been my life’s work to create a safe and reliable home for my family and I am honoured to be able to apply my knowledge to help others to do the same. I am passionate about sharing my experience and skills with our clients to help them create their own homes and striving to improve how this is achieved.”

Our Role

As structural engineers our role is to ensure the safety and stability of your home so that it stands strong for years to come. Our aim is to improve the design process for the creation or renovation of your family home.

We take a holistic approach to your project based upon our 25 years of our experience. We do this through efficient selection of structural systems and considered design to ensure a result that is respectful to your budget, the architecture, and the environment.

Whether you are looking to design for a budget, get your project back on track or simply want a great engineering solution for your project to create your new space – we offer great value service, with your preferred outcome in mind.

We offer Structural Engineering consulting services for residential family home renovations and new homes in South East Queensland. We design and document residential structures created from reinforced concrete, structural masonry, timber and steel. Our expertise is balancing structural requirements with functional spaces with the aim of reducing the construction cost. This is achieved through curiosity and creativity and encouraging our clients and other members of the design team to consider alternative approaches.

Sharing our experience and learning from other projects and presenting new ideas is how we add value. The aim of this is to highlight the opportunities to create more liveable, functional spaces, which may not yet have been considered. By implementing a few simple changes to a plan and elevations can often make way for a more efficient structural system, ensure greater performance, reduce material usage and free up the project budget for those things that are important to you.
