& Civil Engineers

Our Core Beliefs

Hive Engineering is a high end engineering consultancy designing building structures. We offer a high quality service and specialise in buildings with complexity.

We are sensitive to architecture.

We are interested in quality design outcomes and challenge ourselves on every project to deliver the finest results.

We believe in craftsmanship.

We provide a new level of service utilising the latest in design and 3d modeling technologies. Clarity of communication is achieved on the most complex designs. The result is faster documentation delivery with an extremely high degree of accuracy.

We are experienced.

We have a diverse knowledge of buildings. We understand that the structure impacts on other parts of the building, and so we prefer to think holistically about the whole build. We consider how the structure fits together with the mechanical, drainage and other services. We considered how the structure can integrate with the architecture to achieve the design intent with the least impacts.

Jon Anderson Profile

Jon Anderson has nineteen years of structural engineering experience in residential and commercial building design. Jonís background was as an engineer with major consulting engineering firms, Meinhardt and Bonacci Group, working on iconic projects including Federation Square and the QV redevelopment.

Jon worked as an in-house Engineering Director within two Architectural studios, Orbit Solutions and Bruce Henderson Architects. The result is that Jon can offer quality design with a unique perspective and understanding of the building design process.

Jon has developed an expertise in Building Information Modeling, and every project he has undertaken with his own practices over the past six years have utilised a 3d computer model. He has been regularly called upon to share this knowledge; getting involved with the research of the government CRCís, and lecturing undergraduates and masters students at university.


Hive Engineering was established in 2008 as a partnership between experienced Structural and Civil Engineers, Jon Anderson and Kristian Tonon.

Hive Engineering has been successfully delivering projects of varying scales, budgets and complexity since 2008.

Hive Engineering is a modern company that uses 3d Building Information Models to deliver all of our projects.

Our work is extremely high quality and we offer great value and expertise to any project.
