Let’s put it out there up front—we love structural design. Across New Zealand and the world, we’ve built a reputation for translating that deep love of our discipline into robust, resilient, elegant structures of all shapes and sizes. When we sit down at the design table, we’re not looking for awards, or to be clever for the sake of it: we’re simply seeking the best possible structural solution for the challenge at hand.
Holmes Consulting consistently delivers great solutions, combining inventive custom technology with the specialist technical knowledge you only acquire through decades of collective learning. We’re always open to possibility, looking for ways to support brave concepts with great engineering, rather than stomping on the design vision. And, when innovation and imagination are called for, we have them in spades.
In structural design, we’re purists—our view is that any job worth doing is worth doing right first time. Our clients enjoy our forthright pragmatism, and our ability to shed bold new light on age old problems. We’re experts in achieving cost efficiencies through the intelligent use of materials, and skilled at designing for ease of construction. We’ve got a strong green streak, with sustainability never far from our thoughts.
Woven through all the technical knowledge, technology and design genius, we’ve still got that good old Kiwi practicality. We’ll design the most appropriate solution for the situation, delivering on time and to budget. That’s why we’re the benchmark for quality in structural design for buildings the length and breadth of New Zealand, and well beyond.
