Engineering

Ingenious engineering solutions delivering results

Our engineering capability is diverse. We have successfully delivered civil and structural, electrical, mechanical, piping and process engineering solutions. Through our innovative engineering design, we optimise our clients’ resources.

All solutions are fit-for-purpose and customised to suit each client and each project. Our people can troubleshoot and solve problems that others can’t. We have an impressive history of achieving well in all settings, including offshore projects and challenging environments. We have expertise in everything from automation and arctic and cold-region ice engineering through to simulation modelling and water management systems.

At Ausenco, our skills, tools and experience make us a leader in creating world-class engineering solutions across all disciplines.
