DTCE are structural and civil consulting specialists in residential and commercial works. We have been operating in the Wellington region for over 30 years and whilst we have grown, we still pride ourselves in the personal service we provide.


We have built up a strong reputation for producing quality engineering solutions to meet our clients' needs and work on a large range of projects, from designing specialist structural systems for large commercial buildings to small retaining walls.

Whether our services are engaged from the start through to the end of a project, or as a consultant during the construction process, we aim to produce the best possible solution to meet clients' needs and within the desired budget.


We provide customised and experience-based solutions for small to medium structural projects and have a special interest in domestic structures, and seismic strengthening. We form joint-ventures for larger and multi-disciplinary projects from a pool of similarly experienced fellow professionals.


Over the decades we have continued to grow and are always willing to find a solution to a unique structural challenge


We currently have 13 engineers as part of our team, with 8 being chartered professional engineers (CPEng). This high ratio of professional engineers ensures our technical knowledge in all aspects of structural and civil engineering exceeds that of many firms of our size. All our projects are conducted or supervised by one of our chartered professional engineers to ensure accuracy in our designs and reports.

As part of our team we also employ 3 structural draughtsmen who provide all our in-house drawing requirements. With in-house draughting, our engineers can collaborate directly with our draughtsmen to provide a better, more efficient design phase for our clients. 

DTCE provides the technical knowledge and quality of larger firms, with the personal touch and affordability of smaller firms

Ongoing Improvement

We have a culture of ongoing improvement within DTCE. With our size, we are agile enough to adapt to new systems, softwares, and processes to continue our service improvements. Over the last couple of years, we have updated our internal systems, branding, and project management system in an ongoing effort to improve value for our clients.
