Design & Engineering Support


Certified engineering designs, installation advice, and technical support are provided to any stakeholder in a construction project. Following from early feasibility through to final commissioning of the work.


J Steel Australasia provides engineering foundation design and certification for all stages of a civil or marine project. We also provide engineering and technical support for third-party designs and work closely with engineering consultants and our clients to optimise their design solution.

Our services provide a tangible difference to the success of a project by drawing on a knowledge base from a vast amount of historical projects and experiences from around the world. Our skilled in-house engineering and technical staff have international experience and specialise in innovative efficient foundation design, and can also draw on the expertise of Giken ArcelorMittal and our other partners. The focus of our sustainable design is on safety, utilising global best practice born from local and international design standards, codes of practices and guidance.
