Structural Design and Engineering

Create a building that stands out from those around it.

Structural Concepts Ltd are leaders in their field of Structural Engineering and Design, from simple beams to complex multi-level and major industrial and commercial buildings.

Your Building Project and Materials – Working out What’s Best for Your Project

Providing structural design and engineering services from the start of your project, we’ll take you through the design process, produce documentation for council and work with you throughout the construction phase and to final council sign off, removing the hassle and confusion of handling everything yourself.

Working with your requirements and vision, we’ll complete a structural analysis and design, looking at all elements of the design and build. We’ll assess a variety of materials for your building structure, including Timber, Concrete, Steel and any others that may suit. Our structural engineers regularly work with timber, steel and concrete structures, so you can be confident we have it covered.

Your Building Investment Needs to Work For You

Understanding that your building project needs to work financially for you is at the forefront of our minds when undertaking the structural design process. Buildings in different sectors need to work differently. You wouldn’t build a food processing facility the same as a warehousing facility; they both have different functions and working needs.

Be confident that we’ll listen to your specific needs as we work with you during the design phase, ensuring these are incorporated in the end design. You’ll get the most cost effective design that also meets your end needs and those of the building/project’s.

You can also expect honesty from us. If we feel something will or won’t work, we’ll give you advice on the most effective option for your situation and build.

Gain Confidence in our Team’s Design and Engineering Experience

Our three Senior Structural Engineers have between 20 and 30+ years’ experience each in the Structural Engineering field, so you can be assured that working with us provides you with confidence. Our three Senior Structural Engineers are supported by a team of intermediate and graduate Structural Engineers, along with our in house Draughting and Admin teams.

Completing Your Project on Time

Completion of your project on time is important for many reasons. Communication is key and you will informed of where we are throughout your project design. Times frames will be discussed with you and time estimates given as to a completion date for your project.

“I’ve just been checking the building consent application for a property in our district for compliance against the District Plan. There are no planning issues with the proposal.  I’m only emailing you because I was very impressed with the plans provided. All of the planning issues were covered and the information was easy to find. This is unusual – we often have to request further information. However, it was a pleasure to work with your plans.

Keep up the good work!”

Wendy Harris
