Get to know us

We are a local business that’s big enough to make an impact but small enough to care.

We bring structural engineering concepts and creative designs to life through a strong relationship with our clients and most importantly our people. It’s what sets us apart. We believe in the power of a small, tight knit team because that’s what gets the best results.

At Structex, we're a family. We're passionate. We're pragmatic. We want everyone in our team to unleash their potential and to do this we nurture, mentor and challenge each other to step outside our comfort zones. Just as you would expect in any family dynamic.

We have each other's back, and our mindset of helping each other out means you are never alone, no question is too big or too small for us to want to listen. We’re smart, but more importantly, we’re consultative, creative, and genuinely relationship-focused.

We are 100% employee owned!

The business is 100% owned by our senior leaders and an Employee Share Trust, which holds shares and investments for the benefit of all our team. Being employee owned means that we get to decide what is important to us, what opportunities to pursue and where to focus our energies. When we reach our goals we all benefit and can celebrate - we've got skin in the game and every person on the team can make an impact by what they contribute.

We give back to our industry and community

We are proud Professional Development Partners with Engineering New Zealand and members of ACE NZ, annually we engage with our local University of Canterbury to employ Civil Engineering students for Summer Internships which is a direct pipeline to our graduate programme.

Our team are also actively encouraged to engage with other relevant industry groups such as BIMSINZ, Timber Design Society and Human Resources NZ by presenting seminars, participating in research or hosting workshops/meetings.

Our team help drive our direction and planning

Every year we head away for our annual Strategic Planning Summit which sees our team contribute to the setting of company wide strategy and actions. In 2023 we headed to the scenic Hanmer Springs where our focus was remained on our continued sustainability journey, as well as how we can leverage teamwork to boost quality outcomes for our clients.
