Our Business Approach
Our business approach is based on mutual respect. We interact with clients, builders and construction contractors and mutual respect between all participants is fundamental for good outcomes. The building and construction industry is forever changing and innovating and we can all continuously learn from each other. For more than 30 years SJE has tried to exceed our client expectations.
Managing Director

A creative

Engineering designs can sometimes be repetitious and formulative. However, we try to have a pragmatic and creative approach to our work to achieve the best solutions.

SJE is careful not to over-commit our team and we are selective about the type of work we take on. Each project gets our full attention and commitment to be completed on budget and on time.

Doing interesting and varied work attracts good talent and our SJE team is highly skilled.

We encourage continuous training and learning for all our people to ensure we can provide state-of-the-art solutions and outcomes.

We work on projects collaboratively, as a team, to utilise the collective wisdom and experience of our people.

We like challenges and we understand to maintain high consistent standards we will often be judged on our last job or project.
