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.
