Company Profile

Forth is a Perth based consulting business that provides multi-discipline engineering services. 

We focus on working in very close consultation with our clients and design teams to understand the key design issues and project/stakeholder objectives and then leveraging off our experience to deliver functional, buildable, efficient and successful projects.

A key point of difference that Forth offers is that our Directors and Senior Engineers will be key team members throughout the full project duration. Their recent experience is supplemented by project experience obtained whilst working and occupying senior positions at a number Perth based global sized engineering companies.  At Forth, we are proud that our Directors and Senior Engineers can be hands on throughout the design process which we believe is one of the keys to being successful in our market.

We provide engineering services across the structural, civil, façade, mechanical, electrical, fire and hydraulic engineering disciplines. Our project portfolio spreads across most market sectors undertaking developments throughout the Perth Metropolitan area and regional Western Australia.

Communication
 

Building friendships
with our clients

Delivering simple, efficient,
uncomplicated design solutions

Listening and understanding
our clients' objectives

Enjoying our work
 

Being a proactive
and flexible business
