We are an independent and recognised specialist engineering company, located in Auckland and Northland. We are frequently called on to review the work of other engineers and consultants thanks to our practical approach and thorough knowledge as well as rigorous analysis, fact-based risk management and focus to deliver solutions that are fit for purpose, constructible and durable.

At GRIT Engineering, we don’t do can’t. “OWN THE CHALLENGE” is our motto and we live by it. If it is tough, high risk and challenging we want to hear about it.  Every engineering problem has a solution and we specialise in finding ways to assess, modify, maintain and build industrial and infrastructure assets that save our clients’ money (fit for purpose, smarter, safer, sustainable).  At GRIT we don’t do can’t.

We walk the talk every time and are all about adding value in our areas of expertise where we are genuinely qualified and experienced: civil structural engineering and design, durability and rehabilitation, asset management and coatings corrosion protection engineering.

What are we here for? Sustainable infrastructure for NZ’s future generations.

Fit for purpose engineering

We approach every engineering challenge with the aim of delivering a fit for purpose solution, ensuring quality and longevity, whilst minimising costs and operational impact.

To do this, we work closely with you to understand:

  • Critical and non-critical elements or assets
  • Performance and durability expectations
  • Specific risks and mitigation factors
  • Levels of risk tenable to your operation
  • Current regulations and compliance factors

With all of this in mind, design, specification and quality control are tailored to your needs, so you can confidently manage your assets and accurately plan for the future.

Multidisciplinary approach

Drawing on our network of multidisciplinary experts and experienced engineers, we look at ways to deliver efficiencies and the best possible value across the entire project, not just the lowest cost solution for our discipline.

Ingenious solutions

When it comes to complex engineering problems, we challenge the norms and question the status quo, to design ingenious solutions that fulfil all your project objectives, backed up by rigorous analysis and expertise.

What our clients say

  • GRIT Engineering provided structural and durability engineering services with an investigation at Semenoff stadium. The stadium is an important asset for the Whangarei District, availability for large events and public safety are paramount. We found them to be very professional, responsive and competent. It felt we were in safe hands as GRIT engineers were practical and clearly focused on adding value. We would recommend GRIT for structural engineering and assessment projects on this basis.

    — Marie-Katrin Richter - Team Leader Major Projects, Whangarei District Council
  • As contractors on various industrial sites across NZ, we have enjoyed a close collaborative working relationship with Jason and his crew at GRIT. Recently we have engaged with GRIT for subject matter expertise both for structural as well as coatings scopes and make no hesitation in recommending the services and technical know-how offered by Jason and the team at GRIT.

    — Geordie McPherson, Vertech NZ
  • Jason from Grit Engineering has provided invaluable assistance to our client on coating and durability issues as part of a complex building defect claim in the High Court
