Company Background

SWConsult (Stephen Waite)

In 2003 Stephen Waite founded Structural Waterproof Consulting (abbreviated to SWConsult) to provide forensic remedial building consultancy in Greater Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Northern NSW. SWConsult provides remedial and structural engineering services primarily to Strata and Body Corporate Managers of residential, commercial and resort high rise buildings as well as local government, property and management services. We also consult to the remedial building sector (Contractors) who require Structural Engineering advice.

With over 15 years experience in superintendence/project management and trouble shooting difficult building issues in the remedial building sector; we’ve got you covered. The SWConsult team offers maturity comprising several decades of experienced remedial building Consultancy and Engineering.

Our core competencies are in forensic analysis and back engineering to find the causes of issues in buildings and then specify a remedial solution. Issues such as structural cracking, concrete cancer, balustrade defects, waterproofing and glazing frame defects, we also consult in replacement or remediation of roofs and whole of building envelopes. We carry out building condition/defects audits, dilapidation surveys, technical and options reports for clients to plan their maintenance expenditure on their building over future years and protect and maintain owners and investors assets.

Note we principally consult on existing structures and are regarded as specialists in this field. Stephen Waite [MSc – Structural Engineering, BSc(Hons), RPEQ] is our principal Professional Engineer supported by his team of engineering consultants.

SWConsults’ success is evidenced by our record of 98% referrals and repeat business. Our services are competitively priced (we are not the most expensive consultancy or the cheapest) but we value our Customers and strive to achieve the best cost effective and successful solution to remedy our clients building issues.

If you value your asset then it pays to employ  professional independent engineering consultants to give the correct advise and specify the works before going to market to find a builder, who, is often not a remedial specialist builder and will not solve the issue.
