Carterton Events Centre

We strive for technical excellence in everything we do

We excel in structural design and many of our projects go on to win awards for our clients.

Opus’ structural design capability spans the complete range of building structures, from earthquake resilient design to long-span structures in materials from reinforced concrete, structural steel and timber. We deliver these services through local contacts in our 40 offices, five major design offices and 100-plus professional structural engineering staff.

Our clients come from a diverse range of government, local, national and private sectors including education, defence, retail, commercial, housing, hospitality, aged care, community and health.

Because of the extent and depth of our network, we can offer local expertise supported by extensive resources based in design teams across the country.

For clients with a geographically diverse portfolio, we offer a single client contact, usually in the same location as our client’s head office, combined with local contacts. For single project commissions we are able to deliver project work and client management co-located or out of different locations.
