Engineering Consultancy

Our passion for engineering has led us into a wide range of engaging projects, often requiring novel and innovative solutions. However, to minimise project execution risks we strive wherever possible to transfer knowledge, lessons learned and introduce standard, field proven solutions to projects.  We are equally at home developing concepts and then producing the detailed engineering design or simply assisting clients with third party review and engineering management of projects designed by others.
