Our main focus is on delivering structural solutions to the mining industry – WE MINIMISE UNPLANNED SHUTDOWNS.

We do this by designing fit-for-purpose structures from the beginning, or fixing them and maintaining them throughout their design life.

Structural Design

The basic objective is to produce a structure capable of resisting all applied loads without failure during its intended life.It’s also about making it constructible and fit-for-purpose.

We use our own in-house design criteria and Aussie Standards to ensure our designs are compliant but not excessively so.

We design using latest software and technologies – and always challenge the status-quo.

Here’s just some of what we do:

Bins & bunkers | Buildings | Bulk solids handling | Ball mill footings | Conveyor structures | Cranes and monorails | Crusher footings | Dynamic analysis | Earthquake resistant design | Equipment footings | Fatigue analysis | Finite Element Analysis (FEA) | Industrial projects | Innovative products & materials | Jetties | Lifting apparatus | Marine structures | Modular structures | Offshore structures | Process plants | Temporary works | Trippers | Warehouses…

Structural Drafting

We usually work with client’s drawings, but also have in-house capability to produce models, design drawings and shop details.

Certified structural design
Specialist Services

If you want a structural engineer, there’s plenty out there. But how many of them have the experience and certifications to do the harder stuff? How many of them even want the challenges that come from performing difficult engineering?

I don’t know. What I do know, is WE DO!

  • 3rd Party Review & Certification
  • Finite Element Analysis
  • Forensic Engineering
  • Dynamic Analysis
  • Seismic Design
  • Expert Reports
Structural Inspections

Old, or new – we ensure it’s manufactured and maintained to ensure compliance with Australian Standards and remains safe.

We get up close using drone survey, rope access, crane box – whatever is required to properly inspect and assess a structure for defects.

We’ve developed our own iPad reporting App.

On most structural audits, the report, which includes a risk summary and practical recommendations, is complete and ready for issue


Bored with the usual reports? So are we. We can prepare an interactive 3D experience that you can “walk-through” and discover the critical work items.

Remedial Solutions

When it doesn’t comply, we choose the best solution to ensure safety that also minimises or even eliminates shutdowns.

Just because it’s corroded or damaged…

Doesn’t mean it has to be replaced!

Remedial work costs a fortune, and almost always results in production down-time.

“Some of our best remedial design work results in no work for our client!”

Because we understand structures, we can sometimes circumvent problems uncovered during a site inspection by considering alternative load paths.

It means thinking outside the box. That’s what we do.
