Engineering Certifications

Whether you are planning to build a new house, planning to extend/renovate your existing house, or planning to build/modify any other residential structure, Design Engineering has the structural/civil engineering capabilities to provide the required engineering certification documentation for council approval. We have extensive experience in dealing with the local councils in the Perth metropolitan area and are familiar with their requirements.

Retrospective certifications are required when there is an unauthorised structure which needs certification. To start, we can perform the inspection and engineering analysis of the structure and provide engineering certification for council approval, or provide recommendations for remedial work if required. In fact, we work closely with our clients to ensure they are aware and comfortable with the modifications which may need to be made in order for the structure to comply with the Building Code of Australia and the relevant Australian standards.
