This Consultancy Has Engineered A Sale-Ready Business

Brokering the sale is Finn Business Sales’ Laurie Farrell, who was quick to highlight the industry know-how of this business that makes it a cut above the rest.

“The vendor has vast experience and knowledge of building regulations and can offer comprehensive solutions to clients,” Farrell tells me, “If a building approval has been challenged by the local council, this specialised consulting will most likely be a solution to altering the design and coming up with alternatives – it’s this specific expertise and insight that comes from years of working in this industry that can support clients to get where they need to be.”

Asking $175k, this business specialises in structural design and consulting for natural residential buildings – those constructed with straw bale, rammed earth, and mud brick. Their engineer’s service local residential structural design, as well as civil design, and wastewater land application systems. Natural building design is becoming increasingly popular with both individuals and organisations looking for alternative methods to create sustainable designs that minimise their footprint on the earth.

This kind of work relies on experts to power it, and all of the employees in this business are qualified engineers who provide consulting across civil, compliance, environmental and structural – everything from designing multi-story residential homes to commercial straw and earth buildings, all using the very latest 3D-modelling software.

“This business comes highly recommended as an industry expert in this building design field and in engineering computations,” Farrell adds, “They can easily provide these services remotely, making it a fairly pandemic-proof business to consider purchasing – clients are seeking them out!”

With both their Victoria and NSW locations, this engineering consultancy has the ability to work across a large geographic area, and they stay agile with their small team of engineers who work together like a well-oiled machine.

With such developed expertise, it’s no wonder why this business is in demand, well-versed in solving compliance issues both pre and post-build for natural building – an area which is rare in engineering consultancies and which other engineers and architects may shy away from.

Clients flock from around Australia from small businesses or individuals, and many are repeat customers, including architects, and builders, and some once-off clients such as owner builders. 

Naturally, word of mouth recommendations and referrals are strong, and this business also services state and local government agencies through tenders – this wide reach hasn’t needed to be bolstered by extensive marketing and advertising as they are increasingly busy without it, an ideal position to be in for any business. 

For a buyer looking for an ideal balance of success and opportunity for growth, this engineering consultancy offers an undeniable package for expansion, team growth and an even larger slice of the industry pie
