A core part of our skillset, we’ve been helping shape the structural landscape for over 30 years. We relish the challenge of bringing a vision to life while ensuring its integrity and strength will withstand the demands placed upon it.

Our experienced team of structural engineers, architectural designers, draftspeople and technicians provide design and assessment services for a broad range and scale of projects; from large scale commercial buildings to home renovations.

We’re with you throughout the whole project, working closely together from developing the outline brief and concept design, right through to detailed construction documentation, consenting, procurement, contract management, and construction monitoring.

Our service can be tailored from a structural only service to the convenience of a fully integrated design offering. By tapping into the collective skills of our multidisciplinary Eliot Sinclair team, we’re able to ensure an efficient and well-coordinated design process right from the outset.

Our structural engineering services are available for projects throughout the South Island, with capacity to offer them directly from our Queenstown, Hokitika and Christchurch offices. We also frequently have staff in Nelson.
