Portals, panels and purlins, from rain gardens to condenser platforms there is nothing we don’t know about the civil and structural engineering requirements for commercial and retail developments.

Having grown our company through the booming bulky goods retail era these developments are our bread and butter.

Any size, anywhere

Empire Engineering has completed comprehensive engineering for an enviable portfolio of commercial and retail developments from K-Marts on the Gold Coast to vast mine machinery showrooms in North Queensland and Bunnings warehouses everywhere in between.

Shopping malls or neighbourhood stalls we have the skills and experience to guide you through the minefield of statutory civil engineering related planning policies and conditions that are now imposed at both local and state government levels.  We have an intimate understanding of the requirements and challenges around stormwater quality and water sensitive design, flood mitigation, traffic and road impacts, car park layouts and numerous other issues that if not appropriately considered could have severe adverse implications for the viability and functionality of your commercial or retail development.

Efficient & affordable

Our structural engineers are also the best in the game when it comes to optimising the cost of your construction.  We have developed and recruited our design resources with specific expertise in formulating viable and functional designs for commercial and retail structures, specifically in regard to concrete tilt panels and hot rolled steel section portal frames.  Whilst our design fees are some of the most competitive in the industry, the real saving with engineering costs on a large commercial or retail structure is in the design itself.  An efficient yet compliant design could potentially save hundreds of thousands of dollars on a large commercial or retail structure, when compared to a less considered design approach.
