Services and solutions


Pedersen Read offer a wide range of engineering consulting services which can be tailored to suit individual project requirements, including the following:



Project Assessment

Initial discussions between the client and project team to establish the project brief. At this time, requirements in terms of functionality, statutory regulation and budget are identified.

Preliminary Feasibility Study

Such a study provides the foundation for a successful project. Fundamentals are developed and analysed to determine project viability and structure.

Cost Estimation

The process for analysing the various economic factors influencing a project, including:

  • Capital cost
  • Operational cost
  • Whole of life cost


Engineering principles and techniques applied to the project fundamentals to develop a material solution. Phases can include:

  • Concept design
  • Preliminary design
  • Developed design
  • Detailed design
  • Construction design

Design Documentation

A wide range of documentation media and methods are used to present the output of the design process.


Investigation services relate to applications such as condition assessment and the analysis of events such as fires, electrical accidents and faults, and service quality.

Reports and Evidence

Professional report preparation is typically associated with investigation services, and is also commonly provided in relation to functions such as design definition, infrastructure condition and strategic review, and assessment of environmental effects. Expert legal evidence preparation and presentation is also a routine function, which is often associated with the environmental lighting issues of resource consent applications.

Measurement and Analysis

Equipment and expertise is available to carry out a range of condition measurement and analysis functions including power quality, lighting level (i.e. illuminance), and electromagnetic field strength.

Risk Assessment

Risk assessment and presentation is another specialised form of investigation and reporting which is available. Commonly such assessment relates to lightning and security risk.
