As urban greenfield sites become scarce and more buildings achieve heritage status, opportunities for developing assets turn toward Re-engineering.

Re-engineering is the process of structural modification and strengthening of a building to allow you to renew, refurbish,
or retrofit the building and optimise its potential as an asset.

After identifying the specific goals for your asset, which might include maximising rental income and property value, accommodating tenants, or addressing building efficiencies, we work with you to meet those goals. Through informed planning, analysis, and consideration, we help you to determine the best Re-engineering strategy for your building.


Following the detailed structural analysis of your asset, using our multi-disciplinary approach to Re-engineering we will take you through the following stages of your tailored Re-engineering strategy:

  • Smart Planning – we help identify planning limitations to make informed decisions on alternative strategies for delivering the desired function for your asset.
  • Advanced Strengthening – our clever Re-engineering can apply design approaches that can deliver upfront emission reductions.
  • Future Proof Operation – we ensure your asset operates efficiently.
  • Efficient Construction – our Construction Engineering team can help you build efficiently while reducing risk.

Macquarie University Law School

The original 3-storey concrete framed building underwent adaptive reuse, with a key driver being to minimise the impact on the rail corridor beneath the building's foundations. The upper 2 floors of the building were demolished, then reconstructed to create a 4-storey structure with a new atrium roof over existing courtyard.
