Product innovation_

Product Innovation showcases our partnering of engineering with business. We aim to provide creative design and construction solutions to meet our clients’ needs and provide advice to further their goals.

Cross Laminated Timber_

Engco’s ongoing product development work transforms everyday materials into products which are a touch more efficient and effective. Our team love to work on groundbreaking engineering products.

We are the New Zealand leaders in the implementation of cross-laminated timber (CLT) and have become the manufacturer’s engineers of choice.

Our industrial design consultation and collaboration with CLT suppliers will optimise planning your project and ensure your project risk is managed by the experts.

Concrete Waffle Flooring Systems_

Concrete waffle slabs such as the Firth Ribraft® System have become increasingly popular for residential and light commercial floor systems due to their speed of installation and superior structural strength.

The system uses polystyrene pods separated by plastic spacers that quickly secure reinforcing in position with minimal tying of steel required. The pods can easily be site cut allowing for simple installations of drains or modification where complex geometries are required.

Engco worked with Firth to enhance this system to cope with the loss of bearing requirements of TC2 & TC3 site conditions.

Product enhancement included the addition of steel fibre reinforcing and the development and testing of a relevellable jacking system, which has now been adopted as the standard solution for those sites by many engineers.

Seismic Dampers_

Recent seismic events causing large scale damage and loss of life have highlighted a real need to provide innovative and robust structural solutions for the protection of buildings and bridges in high seismic regions.

Engco has provided 2.2GForce with technical expertise and commercial guidance in the development of their innovative low-damage seismic damping systems.

This partnership builds upon Engco’s existing culture of innovation and prior experience in developing seismic systems, including understanding the needs of the market place.

Panelised Construction Technology_

Fitting with our ethos of clean and green this company demonstrates “building better” in a controlled environment with high quality, less waste and defects and better health & safety.

As one of NZ’s prefabrication suppliers, we have partnered with Concision to help develop the critical key connections between the prefabricated panels.

The focus was very technical in developing an efficient system that would work well in the manufacturing process.
