Burns Beach Drafting

I run a drafting business and have worked with Brett many times over the past year when I’ve subcontracted structural engineering work to him. Brett is always fast, efficient, competent, responsive and reasonably priced. I’m looking forward to continuing working with him on future projects.

Joe Palumbo

I am a member of a strata committee for strata units in Palmyra. We arranged B Waddell Consulting Engineers to carry out an engineering investigation on the sagging roof structure over the units. The company inspected the roof and checked the structure to the relevant Australian Standards. It was confirmed that the roof is structurally adequate and thereby saved the unit owners thousands of dollars . We recommend B Waddell Consulting Engineers as a reliable and competent consultant.
