Structural Design Solutions is a privately-owned, boutique structural engineering consulting firm servicing the needs of clients throughout Australia, and internationally.
Founded in 2005 by Dr Robert Facioni, B.(Hons,) Civil Engineering, PhD, Structural Design Solutions was established on the premise that the building industry needed consulting structural engineers who provided effective services based on solid relationships which, in turn, gave clients the experience and results they paid for.
Rob came to this conclusion after having worked in some of Australia’s largest and more prestigious consulting firms, where he was an integral team member of many significant projects including; Sydney Harbour Casino, Emirates Twin Towers in Dubai, Melbourne’s Federation Square, Citibank Tower in Sydney, The RAS Showgrounds Homebush, The Sydney 2000 Olympics Baseball Stadium and the AMP Sydney Olympic Sculptures.
Since 2005, Structural Design Solutions has landed many major contracts with a wide variety of developers, builders, architects and consultants within Australia and internationally, including Fiji and the UAE. See Projects and Clients pages (links)
Structural Design Solutions’ continued success comes down to our collaborative approach, good communication and strong technical excellence.
The foundation to achieving successful results for our clients comes through our expertise in engineering cost effective and timely design solutions.
When working on any project, we listen to the needs of an entire project team – developer, builder, project manager, architect and other consultants. We are proactive in communicating the pros and cons of the various structural engineering options to each member of that team. We then work with the whole team to develop viable concepts which meet the needs and add value to each individual project.
Through this collaborative ‘whole-of-team’ approach, and our innovative designs, we are able to provide excellent project outcomes. The foundation to achieving this is through our internal ‘engineering’ of cost effective and timely design solutions that result in solid relationships which build mutual respect with clients, project designers and construction teams.
Dr Robert Facioni gratuated from The University of Sydney with an Honours degree in Civil Engineering in 1990. He has a PhD specialising in The Vibration Control of Wind Sensitive Tall Buildings.
Structural Design Solutions currently has offices in Sydney and Broadbeach, on the Gold Coast, Australia.
