Coachable Engineering is an innovative consulting group exclusively focused on providing specialist engineering services. We complement traditional engineers and architects and deliver technical input to improve the quality and efficiency of today’s buildings.
Our approach to the envelope is to look primarily at the vision that has been created by the building designer and to understand the story being told. In realising the concept, we develop a creative narrative to begin the process of delivering a technical solution to an architectural vision.
There are a number of factors our team takes in to consideration including aesthetics, structural and mechanical engineering, material science, procurement, fabrication and constructability. Through a detailed understanding of these specialised areas, we are able to develop elegant and commercially viable solutions to architectural challenges that are constantly being refined. Such solutions can be established with the employment of advanced design and engineering tools such as specifically enhanced software and 3D modelling, technology advancements in materials, and often simply by applying common sense design principles that have been rigorously tested over time.
Our philosophy is centred around finding solutions that cost less, last longer and make buildings more efficient. We are committed to collaboration with other like-minded designers, with the experience and knowledge to understand that successful collaboration will lead to a successful outcome.

Coachable Engineering services provided the client and end users with an optimal theatre at a reasonable cost, that can also adapt to the future needs of the school through careful infrastructure allocation”
” Amazing service!. The environmental ‘crown’ that tops the building is a made up of a fretwork-like pattern of crystalline blades that articulate with the glass below. The crown houses photo-voltaic cells and water harvesting facilities along with spa pools, a landscaped skydeck and skypods.”
