We specialise in strong, economical and worry-free structural engineering for architectural homes.

Sophisticated. Spacious.  Stunning.

We bring sophisticated reasoning and creative rationality to create spacious and stunning architectural structures.

We define substance in modernist homes with an intelligent focus on constructability, livability and honesty.

Our favourite structural elements are exposed steel frames and polished concrete slabs. We love expressed masonry facades and timber’s natural beauty.

Natural, honest structures that make you feel at home.

How much does an architectural engineer cost?

The cost of an architectural engineer depends greatly on the project.

Some architectural engineers prepare quotes only on square metres of the house or the estimated cost of the house.

At Cornell Engineers, before we prepare a quotation for architectural engineering, we:

  • Assess the architectural drawings to understand the architect’s concept and style.
  • Check our time chedule to ensure we can complete the structural engineering design in the allotted time frame.
  • Check Dial Before You Dig to see if there are any underground services where the building work is proposed.
  • Determine whether a soil report is required and how much one will cost.
  • Determine whether a site visit is required before we start work.
  • Estimate design fees and drafting fees.
  • Prepare a concise fee letter which sets out what will can help with, what we need you to provide, how long we will take, what we will charge and when and what you will get for your investment.

We firmly believe that the process we follow for structural engineering  gives us the best chance of preparing a thoughtful, economical design.

That gives you and your builder the very best chance of building a beautiful architectural home with exactly the right amount of strength, stiffness and structure.
