Featured Projects

Our philosophy and expertise are best represented by our labours of love.


New Structures

We understand the importance of our role as engineers, in enabling the vision of each new project transforming into reality. We focus not only on the now, but ensure our designs perform well tomorrow and years into the future.

Our mission is to provide our clients with the highest level of skill and attention to every project large or small, and to enable a smooth transition from enquiry to final project delivery.

Existing buildings

Existing structures require an attentive and passionate team, dedicated in preservation and adaptive reuse. We thrive on the challenge of working with structures in need of care and attention, producing solutions for restoration and restructuring to meet the needs of todays’ client. We provide a full structural service for residential and commercial builds.

Unique projects

With more than 7000 projects completed to-date, we have succeeded time and time again in solving unique and complex challenges. While much of our work is often hidden underground or behind fabric and walls, our competency and integrity emanate through our structures, from art to scaffolding, small cottages to multi-level residential, commercial and industrial sites. We also assist in new product development, design and specification.

I have worked on several of our residential projects with Ross Engineers and have had excellent service all the way. They are always prompt, professional and willing to help. John always makes time to meet our clients and discuss the scope and design intent clearly. This clarity is followed through in the documentation which always come through when we need it. On site, the engineers have kept our builders happy with their quick responses to queries and the inevitable detailing changes required when building a home.

I would not hesitate to refer Ross Engineers to other architects.

JKD has engaged Ross Engineers for structural and hydraulic design on several of our residential projects. We have found that using a dual consultancy service simplifies communication and improves co-ordination. John has an excellent understanding of our design intent, and a confident approach to the maze of council controls and guidelines. Documentation is made available on time, in good order, helping us meet our program and commitments.

Jeff Karskens, Designer

I had the pleasure of working with Ross Engineers on a couple of residential projects and was provided each time with highly professional services. John Kantouros was always very attentive to quality of detail and of his structural resolution ensuring it reflects as much as possible the architectural design intent. His structural advise was considered and documentation provided on time. At the end of design and documenting I was happy to provide my clients with consistent professional documentation to their satisfaction.

I am looking forward to the opportunity of working with John and Ross Engineers on future projects and I would like to thank them for their assistance with previous ones.

This is just to let you know I have really been enjoying working with John. It is the 1st time I have been happy with a structural engineer in 5 years now. He is competent, has spent a lot of time on this tricky job, and is very dedicated to helping me.

L Martin, Architect

Since engaging Ross Engineers our hire company has been very impressed by their ability to offer an all-encompassing service to our growing business. They offer a rare customer service focus whilst being flexible to our needs and scope. John and his team have made themselves available (at often short notice) providing the technical advice and solutions to our requirements. Small job or large, I can’t speak highly enough of their service and have no hesitation in making a recommendation.

Thanks for your great on-going service.

Mark Harris, Festival Hire

Appreciate the above and beyond effort on this job.

J Field, Residential Client

Thanks very much John. I think it is a good report, succinct and to the point.

Studio Prineas has been working with Ross Engineers for many years now. They carry out independent dilapidation inspections and reports for us. We love to work with Ross Engineers because they provide a full service in this area which can sometimes be sensitive. They are professional, timely and handle all the correspondence with neighbouring properties. We thoroughly recommend their services.

Hi John,  I have been reading your plans this morning and from what I have gone over so far is well done.  Your designs also reinforce my thoughts of the inadequacy of the previous engineers work so am glad I jumped across to Ross.  I have a number of questions, but I will come back to you once I go over the plans in more detail.  Thanking you and the greater Ross team for the work so far.
