WebbConsult | About

About

WebbConsult is focused on providing optimised solutions on all projects, large and small using advanced technical expertise, balanced with practical application, by understanding the client’s and architectural objectives.

At WebbConsult we pride ourselves on the application of original thinking to all projects, rather than churning out repetitive designs without searching for continuous improvement.

WebbConsult aims to incorporate ecologically sustainable design principles into every project. This is achieved by optimisation of the structural solution, consideration of the specific site constraints, and through careful integration and coordination of the structure, to complement the requirements of the architect, builder and other disciplines.

WebbConsult has particular expertise in the design and analysis of light weight roofs and geometrically challenging architectural projects.

WebbConsult also excels in structural investigation, reporting and remedial works due to its drive to determine and understand the root cause of any structural problem before deriving a purpose designed solution.

Michael Webb, Director

A thorough, logical and creative structural engineer, Michael is one of Australia’s foremost professionals in the field of steel, timber and concrete frame buildings, and sculptural form design.  Both at home and abroad, Michael’s intuitive analysis of lightweight roofs, architectural steelwork, timber and concrete framing has resulted in the realisation of numerous state-of-the-art structures.

Michael’s first five years of practice was at a leading international engineering consultancy, were he gained valuable experience in many prestigious local, national and international projects.  This experience included 12 months secondment to the UK, and set Michael up with a reputation for excellence in design of architectural, light weight roofs and analysis of high-rise structures.

Since then Michael has continued to broaden his experience and expertise at three of Melbourne’s reputable, medium sized consultancies, applying cutting edge technologies to the design of large and small projects. He established WebbConsult in 2010 and has developed it into a the highly successful boutique consultancy it is today.

Solving new problems, especially those posed by great architectural ideas, is what excites Michael most about engineering.  “Watching design concepts start out as sketches and calculations and turn into a reality is, without doubt, the most exciting aspect of every project”.
