Regarding inner city and inner west properties our company’s specialised engineering skills for the typical type of buildings in the inner west adds tremendous value to your project through our ability to successfully deliver the engineering needs.

Inner west properties generally are subject to alterations and additions as knock down rebuild is generally not permitted as the buildings are in heritage conservation areas.

The structures are quite often terraces or semi-detached. The engineering design for each building is often bespoke as they are not modular or project type-built structures, and older buildings often require remediation strategies as part of the new structure design.

  • Understanding site constraints and suitable material selection (site access can be difficult on these sites).
  • We have developed in-house, specific design modelling and analysis skills for these types of structures.
  • Design is aided with specialist structural software – 3D and linear modelling for concrete, steel and timber.
  • Our principal engineer has 10 years’ experience in construction and 15years experience in design.
  • Ross Engineers is approximately 11 years old and has designed over 2000 to 3000 alterations and additions projects for inner city architecturally designed homes.
  • Our Staff are all qualified engineers.
  • Our principal engineer registered and chartered as a civil and structural engineer.
  • Potential savings and efficiencies due to being able to service both civil and structural designs required for inner city projects.
  • Familiarity local council’s stormwater codes.
  • Familiarity with the relevant Australian standards for structural design – loading, concrete , steel, and timber.
