Sectors we work in

Agribusiness

We understand agribusiness requirements and have experience in elliptical and purpose-built wintering sheds, large-scale grain and potato stores, lobster factories and processing plants in locations as diverse as Fiordland.

 

Arts and Culture

When people think of structural engineering and design, buildings are often the first thing that comes to mind. Our team have been involved in so much more than that. Helping artists & sculptors deliver their visions is another passion of ours.

Our work can be found in single-storey office and retail facilities, multi-storey and multi-tenanted commercial buildings, business parks and expansive portal frame warehouses.
