The name YENEM is almost always misspelt YEMEN, and being associated with that country is not the best thing!
The word is an acronym for MENEY – the surname of the founder and director, Dave Meney.
Dave started the business in 1995, having secured a pretty good engineering foundation under the leadership of aspiring engineers such as Ron Toussaint, Dave Richardson, John Ellis (R.I.P), and Graham Bodycoat.
For 11 years he consulted from a home office in the Perth Hills, taking care of structural engineering for the likes of Metplant, Minproc, JR Engineering, Eastman Fort, among many others.
In 2003, he realised his purpose…
“2003 was a pivotal period in my life. Among many discoveries, I realised that I had something to offer the profession as well as my clients.”
Dave Meney, Director
So began a journey of training young engineers. We’re proud to have had a positive impact on around a dozen young engineers so far who chose Yenem to launch their career. Some of those remained for several years and contributed to the growth of our company. Some of those are still with us.
We exist to enrich the lives of the Yenem Team. To build knowledge. To push boundaries. To challenge existing methods and discover new ones. To educate our clients. To understand their needs.
Ideally, our purpose is to teach a respect for structures by our clients, our team, and our community.
Guided by our purpose, our vision is a big one!
If we can foster awesome knowledge in our young engineers, and empower them to become leaders and continue the cycle, well,
we will become the most sought-after structural engineering company in Australia!
Engineering is the fusion of mathematics and science. We give meaning to algebra and calculus, trigonometry and geometry.
We use those strange buttons on a scientific calculator!
We use computer software to solve complex problems.
But mainly, we design things so they don’t fall down.
It was once said “[Structural] Engineering is the art of modelling materials we do not wholly understand, into shapes we cannot precisely analyse so as to withstand forces we cannot properly assess, in such a way that the public has no reason to suspect the extent of our ignorance”. This pretty much sums it up!
In order to carry out this deception, we use computer software tools such as Microstran and Space Gass for analysing structures, and Strand7 for finite element analysis (FEA) and dynamic analysis.
We design your structures to rules and recommendations in documents such as Australian Standards, the Building Code of Australia (BCA), Mining Act & Regulations, International Codes, Industry Publications, client’s design criteria and our own research and experience.
