Growing local - MIEngineers open Wollongong office
We have always been proud of our local roots, having started in the Shoalhaven region more than three decades ago. And now we are very pleased to announce that our Wollongong office has opened in May 2019.
The new office will be led by Graham Stokes, Design and Project Management Lead, and he will be represented by Emil Toussis, who brings 35 years of local and professional experience to MIEngineers and our new office. Emil has with him a team of Civil & Structural engineers based in Wollongong and supported by the wider group.
“Part of what makes MIEngineers successful is that we are dynamic,” Emil says, “we put communication at the heart of everything we do.”
Graham Stokes agrees, adding that “we’re looking forward to supporting the significant contacts we have in the area, including everyone from architectural firms to local council and other public authorities.”
In many ways, we’re the perfect fit for Wollongong right now. We’re large enough to have the capability and resources to service larger challenging projects. But we also put the client’s needs first in a way that many of the bigger companies simply can’t. With Wollongong continuing to grow, we know that MIEngineers is going to bring good value to clients in this thriving area.
As part of our growth, we’ll be co-located with EWFW, a local building services company. Working together, we’ll be able to provide a one-stop solution for building projects. We’ll be able to focus on the structural, civil, project management and costing aspects of a project, while EWFW will bring their proficiency in hydraulic, fire, mechanical and electrical services.
“Architects don’t have the time to chase all the variables,” Graham explains, “by providing everything under one roof, we’ll be able to save clients time and money.”
It’s our intention to keep providing our client-focused service to our new location. MIEngineers has been successful because we care about our customers. We have always been family owned and run, with offices in Redfern (Sydney) and Nowra, and that really sets us apart.
“Other firms talk about being part of a team,” Graham says, “but we actually do it! Working with architects, councils, and clients, every day we demonstrate our commitment to the local community and businesses.”
