Role of a structural engineer
A structural engineer will work with the project manager, architect / designer, fire, mechanical and hydraulic engineers to make sure designs accommodate other services and comply with the National Construction Code and Australian Standards. This guarantees that your build will be function, suitable and structurally sound and that you receive structural engineer certificates for the premises.
Our structural engineers are always up to date with the Australian Standards and National Construction Code and are always aware of the latest developments and which materials are best for the relevant job.
As industry leaders, our structural engineers can assess a build or building site and then directly apply solutions to any potential problems. We are dedicated to creating structures that are functional and engineered to stand the test of time.
A structural engineer has to be precise, from roof structure down to the structure of the concrete slab and foundations. Every detail is calculated from the bolts to the thickness of a concrete slab. These details may seem trivial but it is such precision that ensures the structure stands firm and is future proof.
Inhouse Consulting Engineers has been operating for over 35 years, providing structural engineering for residential, commercial and industrial buildings across Sydney since 1988. As experts in the industry, we understand the importance of the relationship between home owner and structural engineer. Whether you are designing the new build of your dreams or just need to solve the cause of the cracking in your structure, we offer a transparent and friendly relationship so you have complete control, awareness and understanding of what is going on with your project.

Once your architect or building designer has drawn or your plans, the job of a structural engineer is to make sure the structure is adequate and meets any safety requirements and all relevant building codes and standards.
Our structural engineers will factor in conditions like site soil conditions, along with other load requirements, to guarantee your structure will be sturdy and stand firm, minimising risks of cracking, moving or failure.
We coordinate our work with architects, building designers and hydraulic engineers to ensure that the footing design is calculated to ensure that storm water drainage designs meet council requirements and does not present a risk to your home or commercial structure.
After considering these factors, our structural engineer will then detail, draft and create designs indicating the correct measurement of your buildings structure. For example, they will specify the right thickness of concrete and steel reinforcement and the correct size of posts and structure of the beams for the framing of the foundations. They are capable of fine tuning the slightest detail from the design of a bolt or a weld to ensure all the structural elements for harmonious and the structure will match your needs and requirements.
Our team of experienced civil and structural engineers at Inhouse Consulting Engineers are always available to talk you through our drawings and reports to give you confidence every step of the way.
Our best work usually ends up buried beneath the ground, brick-clad or covered in concrete but we don’t mind. The best and most successful designs are the ones which stay hidden for years to come. They remain in place until the structure itself is removed, upgraded and transformed into something even better.
