Read what our happy clients had to say about our engineering services
Peter Talevski has been an invaluable resource during the design and construction of my 1000m2 factory units in Peakhurst.
He has overcome many challenges including negotiation with local council and water authorities to ensure timely development approval.
His engineering and building expertise has saved me considerable costs, and he has fast-tracked my project despite the road blocks I have encountered.
Due to his hand-on approach, Peter has intimate knowledge of every aspect of my project and I highly recommend Peter for your building or engineering consultancy requirements.
I have used Peter Talevski's services for many projects I have been involved in over the last 15 years, from simple renovations to complete new builds, in commercial and residential construction projects. I have no hesitation in recommending his engineering services to anyone, Peter's wealth of experience, coupled with a systematic approach to problem solving and overall User Friendliness has made him the structural engineer I turn to.
Thank you for all the help you gave us, we don't think we could have done it without you.

I have no hesitation in recommending Peter to anyone who requires Engineering and building works.

I engaged Peter and his team for the design and installation of two beams and the construction of a staircase. The entire engagement was fantastic.
Peter takes the time to understand the requirements and designs a solution. Execution is flawless with Peter clearly articulating the process and indicative times of what's happening when.
I would recommend anyone looking to get work done on their home to speak to Peter first. He is happy to give you the guidance you need and take you through the process with confidence and a level of comfort I haven't experienced with other builders, engineers I've encountered.
Thanks for your work Peter.
I am pleased to give testimony on behalf of Peter Talevski, Consulting Civil and Structural Engineer.
I have been using Peter's services now for several years, he has always been prompt in responding to my requests for advice on various Projects,
minor or major. His knowledge is wide ranging, which on occasions has led to alternatives that have saved site and construction costs for me
and my customers. His fees have always been reasonable and I have no hesitation in recommending his services.
Shopping around for prices and searching for experienced engineers proved to be a more difficult task then we imagined. We had a starting point (our unit) and an end expectation of how we wanted our first home to be and feel. We now needed the in between to be fulfilled.
As first homebuyers and first time renovators the experience can be daunting. Engaging the services of Peter was the best thing we ever did.
Peter’s vast range of knowledge far exceeded other professionals within the civil engineering industry that we had encountered. We knew this by the way he would take the time to sit down, listen to us, propose solutions, and explain everything (down to minute details, no one had even thought of); ironing out any confusion to a point of understanding.
Peter was there through every step of the journey – coaching us, suggesting things, and even helping us deal with unhappy neighbors complaining to strata over our renovation noise level.
Peter delivered to us more than our expectation. Our unit truly is a home, everything we wanted and more.
Thank you Peter!

Over the past 15 years I have used Peter's engineering expertise for several home building projects for our family. Normally this has involved design, approval, inspection and certification - the complete package. He has always been able to come up with practical, cost effective designs and solutions to problems. He is reliable, highly qualified and extremely helpful. In particular he attends to any matter such as site inspections without delay. I can highly recommend Peter without any reservation.

Over the last 12 months I have dealt with Peter Talevski's engineering firm on multiple occasions for 2 separate projects. The first for construction of a large set of external stairs over difficult sloping terrain to access the waterfront. The second for assistance with structural engineering advice and certification for a new medical practice that I am building.
As a doctor who deals with hundreds of people on a weekly basis I believe that I am an authority on assessing people.
Peter Talevski is an honest, very experienced and trustworthy professional. He is a highly skilled engineer who is fair and very reasonable.
I have no hesitation in recommending his engineering skills for any project, big or small, that you may require. Not only is he professional in his approach, he is also a gentleman.
I look forward to working with Peter again on my next project.

I have never gone astray following Peter's advice. He has been my engineer for over 7 years now and all of my team welcome him on site. His designs and drawings are always kept simple yet smart and we enjoy the fact that he is not 'Just' an engineer. He comes with over a decade of building experience and has paid from his back pocket for his experience and knows how much things cost.
It's a bonus that he takes economy into account when designing. He was also flexible enough on one project to allow for my desire to build more with timber and less with steel as I didn't have the manpower at that period to fabricate steel so he designed a timber structure that did the job.
If ever you think he may have 'overdesigned' something, do not fear there are a myriad of factors that Peter takes into account and he 'builds' your structure in his mind as he's designing and takes things into account that you perhaps haven't even thought of yet. I also enjoy the fact that Peter does not design to 'minimum' Australian standards. If you want quality structures designed intelligently then do yourself a favour and heed his advice.
Peter can be a hard man sometimes but in this business every client deserves to have a 'hard' man as their project engineer to ensure that shortcuts aren't taken. I highly recommend Peter to anyone wanting successful design and / or advice to solve problems from concrete cancer to underpinning to suspended slabs and everything in between. And, off the record, if you have a
cappuccino with one sugar ready for him when he comes on site to inspect, he may just leave you with a few extra pearls of wisdom which has always saved me money .... but it has to be Campos Coffee.
