Farr Engineers has built a strong reputation across our education community. We provide a wide range of Civil Engineering and Structural Engineering services for educational buildings including:

  • initial engineering consultancy
  • final design and documentation
  • site inspections and certification

Our work includes primary and secondary schools, and tertiary science centres and facilities. Most of the educational projects are constructed while schools remain open and operational. Due to our extensive experience, we have gained valuable knowledge of the importance of the construction methodology for Educational projects to mitigate risks.

This was proven on our engagement as Structural and Civil engineers for Kelvin Grove State College – GLA Year 7 building. The selected site for the new building was on very steep slope which would have made constructing the suspended floors the conventional way very difficult. Our experience with precast beam and column systems allowed us to develop and design a self-supporting floor system over the steep slopes where propping was not required.

We have forged a close working relationship with architects and builders to achieve the best outcome for all involved parties.
