Form and Function

Continually seeking the best balance between form and function, sustainability and constructability, our team of engineers work intelligently to bridge the gap between architect, engineer and builder. We consistently challenge ourselves to find new ways to design and deliver projects faster, more efficiently while never compromising on safety and standards.

We have completed thousands of successful projects all over Sydney

We provide structural engineering services to home owners, architects, commercial clients and developers for a variety of projects. From large and big budget projects to simple and smaller sized briefs, we are capable and experienced in providing expert engineering services.

Our Engineers

Our engineers utilize state of the art structural finite analysis software and advanced 3D modelling and are well versed in the use of steel, concrete, timber, masonry, aluminum and composite panels in building design. Staying in touch with technological advances in engineering and design, we are continually up-skilling with new 3D programs that seamlessly interface with architectural software programs.

Shaneel Prasad

Structural Engineer

Working with Ross Engineers since 2012, Shaneel has built up broad structural engineering experience working through hundreds of projects utilising the engineering favourites of structural steel, timber and concrete, aluminium and even stainless steel structures on the odd occasion.

When not engaging with architects, builders and contractors, Shaneel can be found in the office studying codes and running calculations, diligently searching for elegant, efficient solutions. Equally comfortable with a pen and paper, or a keyboard and mouse, he has provided structural design work for artistic installations, industrial-grade structures, construction equipment, and a wide spectrum of residential structures.

As a structural engineer with an artistic side, some nights you may find Shaneel at your local club or venue, performing on keyboards of a more musical variety.

Jason Lu

Structural Engineer

Having graduated with a Masters in Engineering, Jason exhibits a meticulous approach to his work, whether designing a residential studio, or working on large multi-storey structures.

Fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin, Jason has effectively utilised multilingual abilities through working on structural steel and reinforced concrete structures, throughout China and Australia.

Mostly working behind the scenes, Jason’s dedication and conscientious approach to each design brings well-coordinated, timely completion of projects.

Jason’s genial and warm nature permeates throughout the office, creating a calmness more potent than any yoga session.

Pam Gill

Office Manager

While the rest of the office engage in structural and construction talk, Pam’s days are spent focusing on communication and building successful relationships with clients.

With a background in Accounting and Management, Pam brings to the practice a commendable level of organization and care, often successfully restoring law and order by the end of the day.

When not at work, you will most likely find Pam sampling the wares of local cafes in her ongoing quest of finding Sydney’s best cup of coffee!

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.

Ben Johnson, Benedict Design
We have worked closely with Ross Engineers on many significant projects. We are extremely pleased with their work, honesty and integrity. Ross Engineers creatively solve engineering problems working with our team to achieve the best possible outcomes for design and cost.

Their team manage our projects professionally, always responding in a timely manner. We have been extremely pleased with the full range of services offered by Ross Engineers and will continue to work with them to produce excellence in design.

Aaron Stevens, 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.

Stefan Stanowski, Architect
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.
