Senior Structural Engineer + Structural Team Manager
BEng (Hons) Nat. Dip Civ Eng.
Carmel brings a high level of multi-disciplined expertise to the Prendos team of structural engineers, having first qualified as a civil engineer before studying structural engineering at Ireland’s prestigious Queens University.
She has gained international experience in countries including Ireland, the United Kingdom, the Middle East and New Zealand, and is particularly adept at quickly gaining an in-depth understanding of local design codes and building standards. Having knowledge and experience of how other countries would approach certain construction challenges is certainly an advantage for her clients here in New Zealand.
Buildings, their design and construction, have always held a fascination for Carmel.
Carmel has been involved in the design, technical delivery, client and council liaison and project management of numerous projects including hospital and medical facilities, schools and childcare facilities, art gallery buildings, one off high end new residential buildings to minor alterations and structural assessments, remedial work to existing wharf structures, strengthening design of heritage structures, pedestrian footbridges, multi-storey car park, new commercial and industrial buildings and the relocation of existing steel and timber framed buildings. She has even worked on a palace! Carmel has experience in the design of the various traditional structural materials. These projects have ranged in value up to AED 1 billion.
At Prendos, Carmel’s work involves the structural design of residential and commercial buildings as well as the assessment, repair and strengthening of existing buildings to ensure they conform to the updated Seismic Strengthening Regulations. She is also involved in the day to day management of the structural team.
