FORM Engineers is a consulting engineering design firm. We pride ourselves in our superior approach to identifying the ideal engineering solutions for structural, civil, building services and sustainable design projects.

Our methodology is simple yet creative. The design process often starts with quick and concise hand drawn sketches outlining numerous engineering possibilities.


 Fundamentals are always at the core of FORM Engineers work, matched with the latest technologies. Experience has proven that this approach is superior in rapidly identifying the ideal engineering solution, while maintaining a high quality and standard of delivery at all times. Clients review concepts and informed decisions are then made on the best way forward for their project. The process is completed with clear and comprehensive documentation.

The FORM Engineers’ team is articulate, founded in quality of service with a comprehensive understanding of the procurement and construction processes. We have the experience to manage the challenges of construction and design programming and the diligence to work within demanding deadlines.
