Structural Engineering

Austin Engineering’s team is ready to design the bones and muscles, as they say, of any structural job small or large. Calculating the stability, strength, and rigidity of structures, the team makes creative and efficient use of funds, structural

elements, and materials to achieve goals that often surpass clients’ expectations. Structural project planning, design, cost estimation, and construction services are delivered for structures comprised of steel, concrete and timber.

The Trail, B.C. company uses fatigue and failure analysis, condition assessments, construction contract review, progress reporting and transmission, and distribution analysis to get the job done.

Inspections and Condition Assessments


At Austin Engineering, a large part of our work consists of inspections and condition assessments. We firmly believe that a thorough look into a specific defect provides the premise for any good solution. Inspections may be visual or may involve sensing technologies such as ultrasonic testing.

Austin Engineering uses drones to survey conditions from an aerial perspective as well. We note all deficiencies from the start, streamlining processes to ensure construction stays on track from a safety perspective and for the bottom line.

Design and Construction Management of Timber, Steel and Concrete

Austin Engineering tackles technical challenges with creativity and balanced clarity. We contribute to infrastructure creation in a way that best meets the criteria of the environment while also supporting our client’s vision. Our work begins with the planning and designing stages, developing drawings as a guideline for construction using multiple materials.

We work closely with tradespeople, sharing in the goal of getting the job completed on time and on budget. Construction management of industrial, commercial, municipal, or environmental site development keeps us close to each project. At Austin Engineering, being part of the team that brings a plan to life and sees it through to completion is incredibly satisfying.
