Health & Safety comes first

DB Consulting Engineers has driven many improvements to ensure that the health and safety in our workplace is of the highest priority.

We have in place a Health and Safety Management System which has been certified as compliant with the Australian, New Zealand Standard (ASNZ4801).

In order to keep our employees safe, and to maintain our responsibilities under current health and safety legislation, hazard identification, control and management are paramount. Prior to sending our engineers and technicians on site to carry out engineering inspections and fieldwork, we will research relevant health and safety information for your site. This may include ringing you for site specific information and in some cases contracting site services locators.

We are committed to quality work on time, completed safely and without injury.



Our Branding

In 2018, we transformed our brand to signify strength by the use of geometrical forms, and ‘outside of the box’ thinking for clients. Our brand marks the beginning of a new chapter with senior team members buying into the business, while remaining rooted to our core fundamentals of innovation, strength and people.

The Elements

  • Triangles: The triangles symbolise strength – built up by 35 years of business, a robust team, and demonstrated success in delivering in both structural and civil engineering.
  • Open Box: The open box is one that we strive to think outside of – driving innovation in design.
  • Colours: Blue and yellow represent our two main services – structural and civil engineering, which overlap to to show the merging of these services i.e. foundations & retaining walls.
