About Us

Established 1993

Steve Thorne and Steve Dwyer formed Thorne Dwyer Structures in 1993 to offer a high quality design service.

Both Steve’s have since retired from their roles as Directors, but their legacy lives on while they still work closely with the current directors who all share a strong belief in engineering as an art, which while making use of scientific laws relies as much on our intuitive and imaginative skills as well as our experience to arrive at good solutions.

Guy Wood and Damian Linehan took over as Directors in 2017/18 and in 2020 changed the name to TD Structures.

The company continues to build on a reputation for high quality analysis, design and documentation. This is maintained by established in-house quality procedures and an ongoing commitment to the currency of our skills.  Our practise is geared to carry out large and small projects utilising a number of computer based analysis, design and drafting programs.

 

“For us, engineering should not dampen aspirations through heavy handed application of design. Rather it should respond to demanding design intentions with sympathetic and cost effective solutions.”

 

The Team

We have a team of experienced and well qualified engineers and CAD technicians who are encouraged to keep growing their skills and extending their capabilities. We have experience in the design of a wide variety of projects from residential retaining walls to 6 level commercial and public buildings including the seismic assessment and upgrade of existing structures.
