Structural Engineering

Robert Bird Group has successfully delivered major projects in Australia, South East Asia, the United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates and Europe. Our broad experience with concrete, steel, timber, metal and composite buildings includes structures subjected to earthquake, wind and extreme load effects. We possess industry-leading expertise on sites with difficult ground conditions – delivering solutions for excavating and constructing basements and foundation systems in conditions as varying as the volcanic silts found in South East Asia, through to Arabian sand, and London clay.


In recent years, Robert Bird Group’s innovative use of construction techniques such as top-down excavation, jump-start construction and post-tensioning has added value and saved time on major projects around the globe.


Robert Bird Group’s ability to value-engineer solutions to suit preferred construction methods, procurement programmes and changing global markets has led to our recent involvement on major international projects such as Westfield London, Dubai International Airport, London Olympic Athletes Village, and Abu Dhabi Midfield Terminal.


Our advanced understanding of the latest design and construction techniques has also led to our involvement in landmark Australian developments such as Barangaroo in Sydney, Sydney Convention Centre and the Emporium development in Melbourne.
