Structural engineering

When it comes to structural design, you need consulting engineers you can trust. With innovative structural design and practical solutions Milward Finlay Lobb can deliver real results under the direction of our Chartered Professional Engineer – Kayne Robinson.

Whether it be industrial, agricultural, commercial or residential developments through to basic retaining wall design or foundation testing, the structural team at Milward Finlay Lobb are here to help you with your next structural project, big or small.

Our structural design services extend from structural building inspections, construction advice and certification to the structural design of multi-level buildings, residential additions and alterations as well as the industrial design for light and heavy industrial developments. We employ a structural draughts person to draw and detail our designs so we can show the client the design and use the drawings to obtain consent.

We provide our clients with a highly personal service often neglected in larger practices and offer the direct involvement of a director in all stages of the project. We appreciate that every project is different and design all our structures to reflect the specific constraints of an individual site.

Our aim is always to produce a structure that complements the aesthetics of the building and enables the intent of the architectural form and detailing to be maintained without excessive cost.

We specialise in:

Design of Single & Multi Storey Industrial and Commercial Buildings

Structural Design for Residential Construction

Road, Rail & Pipe Bridge Design & Inspection

Plant Foundation Design for Mechanical & Electrical Installations


Seismic upgrades of buildings
