Pre - 1985

Tony Wilkie, our founder, was involved in Civil Engineering throughout his working life. Upon graduation as an Associate, he furthered his technical skills over the next 17 years serving in engineering and managerial positions.


A.A.Wilkie Consulting Engineers Pty Ltd was established with the opening of an office in Gosnells to provide civil and structural engineering services.

1985 to 2007

The civil component (70% of the business) consisted of engineering design and construction supervision in the residential areas of Southern River, Huntingdale and Gosnells providing several hundred lots for the burgeoning housing market.


We added Geotechnical Engineering services to our service offering, with the provision of Site Classification and Soil Compaction reports for small to medium size developments.


A.A.Wilkie became involved in engineering design and supervising construction of key landmark projects within Fremantle including the Fisherman’s Memorial and the Fremantle Sailing Club.


We outgrew our office in Gosnells and relocated office to Fremantle.


Wilkie secured large subdivision jobs including a 36Ha property within the Shire of Northam.


Wilkie celebrates 30 years of civil and structural engineering services in Australia.


Wilkie is re-branded into “Design Engineering” to widen its appeal to include the residential audience and home renovators.


Design Engineering continues to have a dedicated team of civil, structural and mechanical engineers and designers who continue to provide quality services to a growing clientele.
