ENGEO has chosen the Sunshine Coast as the home of its first office in Australia.
Founded in the United States in 1971 and New Zealand since in 2010, ENGEO officially opened its Maroochydore premises on the 7th of June 2018 after opting for the Sunshine Coast ahead of opportunities elsewhere. It has plans for eight full-time staff on the Sunshine Coast over the next two years and up to three new Australia offices in the next five years.
The employee-owned company also has offices in Christchurch, Wellington, Auckland, Tauranga, California and Nevada, with around 270 employees servicing a diverse range of public and private clients.
ENGEO Australia director Guy Cassidy said there were a number of excellent reasons why ENGEO chose the Sunshine Coast as the first location for the firm to touch down in Australia.
“We could see the growth potential and opportunities that exist when we made our visits to the Sunshine Coast, and that really cemented the decision,” said Mr Cassidy.
“There’s a market demand there for the responsive geotechnical and environmental engineering services that we provide. ENGEO has completed all types and sizes of projects in multiple market sectors and it’s exciting for us to get under way on the Sunshine Coast. We look forward to assisting local companies in every phase of project development from the due diligence for land acquisition and planning through entitlement, permitting, construction and project build-out. Over the past 47 years, we’ve built a reputation for finding solutions instead of problems and embracing project challenges as opportunities to serve and innovate.”
