Testimonials

Some feedback we've had along the way.

BMC were fantastic in providing multiple structural assessments for our motor vehicle group throughout Christchurch in the wake of the Canterbury Earthquakes. Their flexibility, attention to detail and prompt action led us to utilise their services again for multiple further projects.

Warren Batchelar and the BMC team offer a broad set of skills and are responsive to queries and tight timeframes which clearly reflects their professionalism and the value placed on the customer relationship. I look forward to continue working with them on current and future projects.

Batchelar MacDougall Consulting has provided structural engineering services to Oakwood Properties Ltd for over 6+ years. As owners of a major Commercial and Residential portfolio in the South Island we have found it is critical that we utilise specialist professionals who we can rely on to deliver work to a high quality standard, have integrity, are efficient and innovative. Batchelar McDougall Consulting deliver on all these criteria.

The work provided by Batchelar McDougall Consulting has included assessment, documentation (3D plans), strengthening design, construction monitoring, sign off & building information support. The quality of work is at all times detailed and individual projects are always completed on time. Communication is always clear and pragmatic. The end result always exceeds my expectations.

David Marsh, Executive Director

BMC made an intricate task look easy. The project has many unique architectural features and constraints which required a skilled team to make those features possible and practical. This ability and interest in the work, along with their ability to explain and support the client, were both appreciated and admired.

We have just received some design drawings for pricing for our project and would like to say that they are the best drawings we have ever received from an engineering firm. We sent them off to our detailer for pricing and he came back saying that he has very little to do and no questions to ask as everything he needs to do the fabrication drawings is already sorted out.

This has meant a very low cost for the drafting that I need to incorporate into the price and that will result in a saving to our price, the contract and the client.

Precision agriculture is critical to farm productivity and long-term sustainability – for all types of farming, whether that be dairying, dry stock, cropping, horticulture or others. Implementing best practice precision agriculture begins with accurate GIS farm mapping. Every farm plan and nutrient budget, paddock level ordering and application of fertilisers and sprays, crop planting and yield monitoring, predictive irrigation planning or tile drainage plan relies firstly on accurate mapping.

That’s why for some time now we have been using Batchelar McDougall Consulting to provide us with professional engineering-grade drone maps for our farmer-customers.

There’s an old adage “time, cost, quality – pick any two”. But we’ve found with BMC we happily get all three. Quality comes first, but we also enjoy quick turn around times and market-competitive pricing.

It has paid dividends working with BMC. They have worked extremely well with the project team and site staff. The level of detailing provided in their structural drawings right from day 1 has meant the steel fabricator did not require shop drawings, and, everything has gone together like clockwork”.

We recently engaged BMC, on behalf of our client and vendor, to complete a design solution to improve the seismic capacity of a building in Queenstown we were marketing for sale. We provided a tight timeframe to BMC given we had a fixed Auction date that was pending. BMC provided an innovative, cost-effective and well-presented design solution that was delivered on time and on budget. The solution provided valuable information to our potential buyers assessing the property for purchase. We would engage BMC again for a similar exercise.
