Peace of mind
With the expertise to ensure compliance with the standards set down in the New Zealand Building Act 2004 and relevant New Zealand Standards, Engineering Design Consultants (EDC) play a crucial role in the safe construction of your project. We are also highly skilled in other areas that require structural expertise including: bridges and culverts, commercial signs, shade sails, retaining walls, silos and tanks and the support structures for various industrial processes.
Structural analysis and design
EDC produce detailed structural design drawings for small to large-scale buildings and industrial projects, and also provide a structural design service for the renovations to existing buildings; using 2D and 3D computer software to provide safe and cost effective solutions.
Seismic analysis and design
We can inspect the condition of existing buildings and recommend seismic upgrading work, or start from scratch with a proposed building to advise and design the necessary seismic design features to the current standards within New Zealand.
Where required, we inspect the construction work in progress and liaise with the contractor and issue instructions on the relevant technical matters. Our chartered engineers can certify the completed construction work using the Producer Statements required by council, in accordance with the Building Act.
