Quality management

At Don Thomson Consulting Engineers, we pride ourselves on our efficient and cost effective procedures. When you engage us, we strive to deliver our services on time, and on budget. To achieve this, we have quality management procedures in place that every engineer must follow, and peer review processes to ensure all projects meet Council regulations.

 

Design Stage
When you first come to us, we will assess your needs and determine whether DTCE has the capacity to carry out your plans.

If we have the capacity, an engineer will be assigned to your project by our Director

If other technical skills (geotech, architect, drafter) are required, the engineer will arrange the appropriate personal resources

The engineer will then liase with you and go to site to determine the scope of your project and create a fees agreement that will outline our involvement.

When you agree to our fees, the engineer will communicate with you and any developers and contractors involved with your project and carry out any calculations, reports, or specifications needed

Once these are completed, we will send you our certification ( Producer Statement-PS1-Design) along with all calculations necessary to lodge a building consent

 

Construction Stage
As part of the Building Consent, input from the design engineer is generally required during construction. This is known as construction monitoring

To complete construction monitoring, your engineer will communicate with your builder and come to site as required to provide site observations and documentation for the Council

If any remedial work is required, we will liase with the builder to ensure this is carried out to our standards

Once our involvement is complete, all site visit documentation will be sent to all relevant parties along with our construction certification (PS4-Producer Statement-Construction)

Your builder will then send the certification to the Council for final inspection
