Overview:

With Nearly 30 years of Australian Experience Diskoros Engineering is a structural design and consulting firm. specializing in the design of commercial and residential building projects and refurbishment of existing buildings.

Diskoros Engineering provides complete building consultancy services, structural Engineering solutions and Due Diligence evaluation reports. Our engineers are experienced in designing structures using steel, concrete, masonry and timber. Our portfolio includes a wide range of building projects including residential alterations and additions, new dwellings, Dual occupancies, granny flats, office, educational, institutional, healthcare, warehouse/distribution, apartments, villas, and town houses.

Vision:

The structural engineer’s responsibility is to design a building that meets the Australian Standards and Building code of Australia requirements, including fire safety standards which must be integrated into the aesthetic and functional characteristics that the architecture desires.

Importantly, construction costs are critical to the viability of a project. Therefore, producing a design that maximizes structure efficiency is essential. We believe the ability to provide a design that meets all of these demands is the essence of good structural engineering.

Project Approach:

Diskoros Engineering works with the builder, project architect and owner to develop a structural concept that integrates the architectural aesthetic and functional requirements with the most appropriate structural system.

Our initial systems analysis considers the design requirements that the other project consultants including mechanical, civil, electrical, and landscaping may have on the structural system to better insure that the structural design contributes to an overall building cost that meets with the owner’s construction budget expectations. A well detailed structural design document gives cost certainty and avoids cost over runs. This project approach has enabled Diskoros Engineering to establish and maintain relationships with architects, owners and builders that have remained strong since its formulation nearly 30 years ago.

Diskoros Engineering also provide consultancy services assisting our clients in solving complex operational challenges, blending strategic thinking with hands-on practicality.
